Bachelor of Science (General Program) – Transfer - Dental Hygiene Diploma (3-year) (TB)(O)

Graduates of a 3-year diploma in Dental Hygiene from any college in Ontario, with a minimum average of 70%, may be considered for admission into the Bachelor of Science (General Program). Qualified applicants will receive a block transfer of 8.0 non-transferable FCEs toward the 15 FCEs required for the program. These non-transferable credits will include 5.0 FCEs at year 1 level (of which 4.0 FCE will be Science, Type C course credits) and 3.0 FCE at year 2 level (of which 2.0 FCE will be Science, Type C course credits). Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to either the University or a specific program. Students can be admitted to either the Thunder Bay or the Orillia campus.

The Bachelor of Science (General Program) attempts to overcome the restrictions of traditional programs by allowing the student as much latitude as possible in choosing options. Students may pursue this program as either a full- or part-time student.

The intent is to give some flexibility to the student on the seven (7) full course equivalents (FCE) required to complete the BSc (General Program) degree with only the following exceptions:

1) A maximum of two (2) additional first or zero year level FCEs may be taken;

2) Two (2) FCEs of Type C courses must be taken at the third year level or above from the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies;

3) An additional two (2) FCEs of Type C courses must be taken at the first year level or above from the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies;

4) No more than three (3) FCEs may be taken outside the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies;

5) At least one-half (0.5) FCE of Type E courses must be taken to meet the Indigenous Content Requirement (Geography 1190 or Anthropology 1034 recommended);

6) A minimum average of 60% is required in the Type C courses taken from the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies.

The student is advised to discuss the selection of course(s) with the BSc (General Program) program advisor (i.e., the Dean of the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies or Dean's delegate).
