BCD Honours Conversion

Students who complete the three-year BCD program and graduated with the degree may apply to convert their degree to Honours with an additional year of study to complete the requirements for the Honours degree.  Please refer to the Academic Regulations section of this calendar for regulations regarding transfer credit eligibility.

Eligible students need to meet the following conditions:

  • They completed the three-year BCD with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater and a calculated GPA of 3.0 or higher for mandatory Community Design courses and core electives;
  • A portfolio submitted to the School of Planning by a date in the Winter semester of each year, announced in the immediately preceding Fall semester of each academic year in the School of Planning. Requirements of the portfolio are available from the School of Planning. 

Students who may have completed any required courses from the honours year as part of the 90 credit hours of the general BCD program will select alternative core elective credits from the lists to make up the credit hours to a total of 30.
