This program was created by DC and UOIT for individuals who plan to take UOIT’s Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) degree program. The bridging courses required for admission to the degree program are embedded in the curriculum and if you achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in each semester of your DC courses and no grade below C in your UOIT courses, you can apply directly to the third year of the degree program. This opportunity allows qualified candidates to major in Entrepreneurship at UOIT; however, acceptance is based on UOIT approval with higher marks required. The UOIT embedded courses are flexible and subject to change by UOIT. Academic planning assistance will be offered to you by a Durham College student advisor representative.
As a student participating in this program, you will be registered at DC and at UOIT. UOIT offers classes in the evenings and the annual calendars including reading week are generally different. Students are expected to attend all classes that are scheduled. In addition, the two institutions use different learning management systems.
