|June 4, 2018||The following amendments have been made to the UTSC Second Degree Policy:
1. Students with any completed undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto may apply for, and obtain, an Honours Bachelor of Arts or an Honours Bachelor of Science from UTSC as a second degree.
2. No student may apply for, or obtain, a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) as a second degree.
3. Students wanting to pursue a second degree in a limited enrolment program may need to complete prerequisite courses as a non-degree student prior to entering the second degree.
4. Students will be evaluated for credits towards their second degree according to the current practice, and credits taken as a UTSC non-degree student since graduation will be retained as credits towards the second degree.
5. In the second degree, students will be restricted from repeating program(s) in the same discipline(s) as completed in the first degree; for example, a student whose first degree includes a program in English will not be permitted to use a program in English towards a second degree. Similarly a student whose first degree includes a program in Psychology will not be use a program in Psychology towards a second degree.
