Pathways to Science

This one- or two-semester program is designed for students who wish to pursue a diploma in the Sciences, but who lack one or more of the Science prerequisites (Sec. V Math Technical & Scientific Option (064506 or 564506) or Sec. V Math Science Option (065506 or 565506), Sec. V Chemistry and Physics).

In their first semester, students will take not more than six courses: English, Physical Education, Strategies for Success in the Sciences as well as any missing science prerequisites and /or introductory course(s).

  • Students who are still missing a prerequisite or prerequisites for the Science program and with a satisfactory academic performance can remain in Pathways to Science for a second semester to complete any missing prerequisites. To remain in Pathways to Science requires:

    –Satisfactory academic performance
    –Successful completion of the Strategies for Success in the Sciences course

  • Students can transfer to the Science program or choose another program at the end of their first semester depending on their performance and interests.
  • Students will be required to complete a “Program Change” request online on Omnivox during their first or second semester.
  • Change of Program to the regular Science program at the end of the first or second semester requires:
