Period to request a program change – OPEN for Winter 2015 session
The period for making changes to your program for the Winter 2015 is now open; however, only certain programs in the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Law (Civil Law Section) are available for winter admission. Please note that we may defer a decision on certain program change requests until the next session depending on the nature of the request, program availability and other factors. If the decision on your request has been deferred, you will be notified by email.
Who is this process for?
This process is for undergraduate students who want to make changes to their current bachelor’s or are considering transferring to a bachelor’s program offered in a direct-entry faculty (Arts, Science, Social Sciences, Engineering, Health Sciences or the Telfer School of Management).
This process doesn’t apply to the following situations
- You’re applying to a professional program offered by the faculties of Education, Law or Medicine. If so, follow the Admissions Office process.
- You want to apply to a graduate program. If so, the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies can provide you with more information.
- You’re currently registered at the University of Ottawa, expect to graduate soon and would like to apply to an undergraduate program to complete an additional degree in a faculty other than your current one. If so complete the Application for Undergraduate Admission.
- You’re not currently registered in the Co-operative Education Programs (CO-OP) and would like to add CO-OP to your main study module. If so, check if CO-OP is offered, then open a session in uoZone and follow the steps in the COOP Navigator. Find out more about CO-OP.
