Upgrading and Second Degrees

Upgrading a U of T Mississauga Bachelors Degree

Students who have previously graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree may choose to upgrade to an Honours degree in the same field. For example, a BA may be upgraded to an Honours Bachelor of Arts and a BSc may be upgraded to an Honours Bachelor of Science.

Participation in the graduation ceremony is only allowed for the conferral of the initial bachelor degree.

Second Degree Requirements

Students beginning a second degree at U of T Mississauga are normally granted 5.0 transfer credits: 4.0 credits at the 100 level, and 1.0 credit at the 200 level, regardless of the number of previous degrees held. As such, second degree students are typically granted Year 2 standing and receive their Distribution Requirements.

Current students from another division of U of T should contact the Office of University Admissions and Outreach concerning admission to U of T Mississauga. Also see Admission with Post-Secondary Studies section in this Calendar.

University of Toronto alumni may complete a second degree provided the second degree does not include a program(s) in any of the same discipline(s) as the first degree. Second degrees of the same type (i.e. HBA/HBSc) are permitted, provided the program is different as indicated above. For example, if a student completed a previous degree including a program in English, they may not complete a second degree including a program in English. This includes Programs of Study with the same 4-digit code (e.g. ERMAJ1645 and ERMIN1645).  For guidance, please seek academic advising support in the Office of the Registrar.

Students who are graduates of another university may apply to take a similar degree in a different area of study, and should refer to the Admissions section of this Calendar.
