IMPORTANT PROGRAM-SPECIFIC NOTES AND RECOMMENDATIONS
TIPS IF YOU ARE IN AN IBA OR IBSC PROGRAM
International Bachelor of Arts (iBA) and International Bachelor of Science (iBSc) programs follow the same degree structure as the BA and BSc, but include additional language courses, internationally-oriented courses, and an international exchange (typically completed in your third year).
ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
Bilingual iBA / iBSc
Students must complete at least 18 credits in each official language (English and French). At least 6 credits in each official language must be completed at Glendon.
Students can complete the language requirement with the following courses:
- French as a Second Language (GL/FSL) courses at the 2000 level;
- French Studies (GL/FRAN) courses at the 2000 level or above;
- Courses in disciplines taught exclusively in French (with signed Bilingual Requirement form);
- English as a Second Language (GL/ENSL) courses at the 2000 level or above;
- English Studies (GL/EN) courses at any level;
- Courses in disciplines taught exclusively in English (with signed Bilingual Requirement form).
The remaining 12 credits in either official language may be completed abroad.
Trilingual iBA / iBSc
In addition to the above 18 credits in each official language (English and French), students must complete 18 credits in a modern language (including an advanced-level course) offered by York University.
Students must choose a language from the following options:
- Arabic (AP/ARB)
- Chinese (AP/CH)
- German (AP/GER)
- Greek (AP/GR)
- Italian (AP/IT)
- Japanese (AP/JP)
- Korean (AP/KOR)
- Modern Greek (AP/GKM)
- Portuguese (AP/POR)
- Spanish (GL/SP, including GL/SP 3000 6.00)
The third language requirement may be completed abroad.
Over the course of your degree, you will need to take 12 credits chosen from a list of over 200 courses. These courses will explore key international issues, either within or outside your area(s) of specialization.
Students in the iBA or iBSc program must complete at least one full term abroad as a full-time student at an institution with which Glendon and/or York has a formal exchange agreement. Students are required to pass a minimum of nine credits for a half-year exchange, or 18 credits for a full-year exchange.
Course Planning for Exchange
Students are generally advised to go on exchange in their third year as it is assumed that most of their main requirements will have been satisfied by then. We recommend to save your elective credits for your exchange program, however, you are also able to take Major/Minor courses as well. This will require additional steps in your course planning process. You will need written approval from the Chair of your program by providing course descriptions and syllabi to determine course equivalencies.
It is highly recommended to request a progress report and check in with an advisor about your remaining degree requirements before applying. You will be able to confidently and strategically enrol in your courses while on exchange, and even after!
NOTE: Some programs will not allow you to take core courses on exchange. For example, French Studies core courses must be taken at Glendon. With this in mind, you must complete at least your 2000-level FRAN core courses prior to your exchange year to remain on track.
Where to Apply
Check out the Glendon International and York International websites for more information about the application process and institution agreements.
TIPS IF YOU ARE IN THE CONCURRENT BED PROGRAM
Since you are concurrently registered in two degree programs, you should seek separate advising from the Faculty of Education for questions about BEd requirements.
Faculty of Education Academic AdvisingYou can find information about your BEd requirements, including Francophone Culture Credits, in the Academic Calendar.2021-2022 Education Academic Calendar
STEP 2 – PREPARE TO ENROL
CHECK YOUR ENROLMENT WINDOW
Students are assigned a date and time to begin their enrolment process via the Registration and Enrolment Module for the next academic session. Please check your enrolment window to see your earliest enrolment date.
The date and time are listed in Eastern Standard Time (Toronto), and are determined based on the total number of credits earned.
REVIEW YOUR COURSE PLAN
By this point, you should have completed the Enrolment Planning Worksheet and drafted an enrolment plan. In case you haven’t, make sure to go back to Step 1 so that your plan is based on the requirements you need to complete.
For example, most students will take a maximum of 30 credits in Fall/Winter:
- 12 Major credits
- 6 FSL credits
- 6 General Education credits
- 6 credits of Credits Outside Major
BROWSE THE YORK COURSES WEBSITE
The Summer 2022 lecture schedule is now available. The Fall/Winter 2022-2023 lecture schedule should be published after April.
USE THE VISUAL SCHEDULE BUILDER (MOCK TIMETABLE)
Put together a tentative timetable on the Visual Schedule Builder based on the course offerings indicated on the lecture schedule. Consider creating multiple schedules in case some of the courses are full.
COURSE CREDIT EXCLUSIONS
Some courses overlap in content, and as a result, a student cannot be granted credit for both courses if taken simultaneously or subsequently as per the Senate Policy on Repeating Passed or Failed Courses for Academic Credit (e.g., GL/MATH 1930 3.00 and SC/MATH 1300 3.00).
- Most of the time, the course titles will be almost identical and imply a course credit exclusion, and sometimes, they might not be as obvious. Regardless, it’s good practice to read the course description attentively for accuracy.
- The Registration and Enrolment Module will not prevent enrolment in the excluded course. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to ensure course selections meet degree and program requirements for graduation. Contact Academic Services to confirm any applicable course credit exclusion if you’re unsure: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cross-listed courses are offered jointly by at least two teaching units such as departments or divisions. The course is the same but is listed under different course catalogue numbers for each teaching unit. In some cases, courses are cross-listed between units in two different Faculties (e.g., GL/GWST 1502 6.00 and AP/GWST 1502 6.00).
Cross-listed courses cannot be “double-counted” to fulfil a double Major or Major/Minor requirement. For example, if GL/ILST 3650 3.00 is cross-listed with GL/POLS 3650 3.00, the course can only be counted either as an International Studies course or a Political Science course, but not as both. To choose between cross-listed courses, enrol in the course that most closely fits your program requirements.
PREREQUISITE / COREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS
Some courses will list one or more prerequisite or corequisite courses in the Course Description on the York Courses Website timetable.
A prerequisite course must be completed before taking the course for which it is a prerequisite. For example, to be eligible to take GL/ECON 2100 6.00, you must complete GL/ECON 1000 3.00, GL/ECON 1010 3.00, GL/MATH 1930 3.00 and GL/MATH 1940 3.00 beforehand:
Prerequisite courses are often offered earlier in the academic year, which means that the prerequisite for a Winter term course is often offered in the Fall term. The sequence of enrolment therefore matters. You must be mindful of this during course selection by always checking the course descriptions of all your mandatory core courses.
A corequisite course is much like a prerequisite course, except that it can also be completed at the same time (concurrently) as the course for which it is a corequisite. For example, you should be taking GL/PSYC 2510 6.00 at the same time as GL/PSYC 2530 3.00:
It is your responsibility to enrol in the appropriate course sequence.
Most undergraduate students can repeat any passed or failed course twice for academic degree or certificate credit, to a maximum of three course attempts per course. A “course attempt” is defined as a completed course where a final grade is recorded.
If you repeat and complete a course for academic degree or certificate credit, the grade from the most recent course attempt will be used to calculate your total credits and GPA. The grade(s) from earlier course attempts will remain on your transcript but will show a “No Credit Retained” (NCR) grade qualifier to indicate a course repeat. A course can be credited only once towards satisfaction of degree or certificate academic credit requirements.
The restrictions on course repeats also apply to cross-listed courses and course-credit exclusions for a course. Please consult the Senate Policy on Repeating Passed or Failed Courses for Academic Credit.
At least half (50 percent) of the course credits required for a Glendon College degree program’s major and/or minor must be taken at Glendon College. For example, the Honours BA Business Economics program requires 60 Major credits, which means that at least 30 Major credits must be completed at Glendon to meet the residency requirement.
Additionally, Glendon students are expected to take 30 York credits; this can be a combination of York and Glendon courses or Glendon courses exclusively.
Glendon students are advised to take no more than 30 credits. The maximum enrolment allowed online is 36 credits. It is recommended to have a balanced schedule of five courses per term or 15 credits per term for a manageable course load.
It is normally recommended to start with 3-6 credits to adjust to the accelerated pace of Summer term. Glendon students may take a maximum of 15 credits during the summer session.
