Programs and courses:

The University reserves the right to limit enrolment in any program. Students should be aware that enrolment in many programs is limited and that students who are admitted to programs at King’s/Dalhousie are normally required to pay deposits on university fees to confirm their acceptance of offers of admission. These deposits may be either non-refundable or refundable in part, depending on the program in question.

While the University will make every reasonable effort to offer courses as required within programs, prospective students should note that admission to a degree or other program does not guarantee admission to any given course. However, no student in a graduating year may be excluded from a course required by that student to meet degree requirements because of lack of space. (This rule does not apply to elective courses or to preferred sections of courses). Students should select optional courses early in order to ensure that courses are taken at the most appropriate time within their schedule. In some fields of study, admission to upper-level courses may require more than minimal standing in prerequisite courses.

For full details of programs available to King’s students through the King’s/Dalhousie Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Faculty of Science, including course descriptions, please consult the current Undergraduate Calendar of Dalhousie University. Course offerings for any given semester are available through the Academic Timetable available on Dal Online or on
