Subject POSt

Arts and Science students who have completed a minimum of 4.0 credits toward their degree are required to enrol in a suitable combination of Programs of Study (POSts).  Allowable combinations include:

  • One Specialist
  • Two Majors
  • One Major + Two Minors

Students not enrolled in an appropriate combination of POSts will be blocked from enrolling in courses on ROSI.

Students apply for and/or choose their programs beginning in April, and responses to applications where appropriate are available on ROSI prior to Fall/Winter course enrolment.

Quick Facts

  • Remember second year students (anyone who has completed 4.0 or more credits) will be blocked from Fall/Winter course selection if they are not active in a suitable combination of Programs.
  • If you are not yet eligible for the Program that you want but have completed at least 4.0 full course equivalents, you will have to select a combination of programs that will serve as a temporary measure until you can qualify for your first choice.
