Progression and Graduation Requirements

Once admitted to second year of the collaborative program, students must meet progression and graduation requirements for both the degree and diploma programs. To progress in the degree portion of the collaborative program, students must attain at least a 68% average in each academic session. In addition, students must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 68% in the 15.0 courses being counted towards the degree. For Fanshawe courses that are being used to fulfill degree requirements, grades will be included in average calculations used to assess progression and graduation.

Note: Students in the MTP program are not required to fulfill University breadth requirements for graduation purposes. This exemption does not, however, apply to Honors Bachelor degrees, and students who intend to upgrade to Honors are strongly recommended to complete the breadth requirement within their MTP program.


Failure to Meet Progression or Graduation Requirements

A student who fails to meet the progression requirements in any year must withdraw from the collaborative program. A student who is required to withdraw from the collaborative program must complete all the degree requirements of the program in which s/he is registered in order to graduate.


Dean's Honor List

MTP students will be considered for the Dean's Honor List in all years of the collaborative program. Adjudication will be based on having an overall 80% average on all courses taken within the academic year (September April) and will include Fanshawe courses that are being used to fulfill degree requirements.


Graduation "With Distinction"

Students who have achieved an overall average of 80% with no grade lower than 70% on the entire program with no failed courses will receive the designation "With Distinction".


Gold Medal

The Gold Medal will be awarded to the student with the highest overall average and will include Fanshawe courses that are being used to fulfill degree requirements.
