A list of available Plans, along with information on degree options, can be found at http://www.queensu.ca/artsci/help/second-degree-programs. (Note that this list is not complete. If you do not see your first and second degree combination, please contact Undergraduate Admission for further information.)
Note that Fall term is the only admission period for Second Degree programs. The last date to submit an application is 1 June.
Applicants who hold a degree from another University who wish to upgrade their degree from a General to Honours degree should note that such a degree completion would require two full years of study at Queen's.
Students wishing to make Program or Plan changes to an existing Second Degree must apply using this application . Academic viability and plan capacity for second degrees can be found at http://www.queensu.ca/artsci/help/second-degree-programs. (Note that this list is not complete. If you do not see the first and second degree combination that you are considering, please contact Undergraduate Admission for more information.)
Applicants whose first degree is from the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen's must have graduated in good standing and satisfy departmental criteria. (Students who wish to pursue a Second Degree in the B.F.A. (Hons.) or B.MUS programs must also meet specialized entry requirements.)
Applicants whose first degree is from another Faculty or School at Queen's must have graduated in good standing and have a minimum Cumulative GPA of 2.6 for Full-time admission or 1.90 for Part-time admission. Note that some departmental criteria may exceed these minimums.
Applicants who first degree is from another university must have the equivalent of a minimum Queen's Cumulative GPA of 2.6 for most Plans to be considered for Full-time admission, and 2.60 for Part-time admission to most Plans.
