A minimum graduating grade average (GGA) of 60% is required to be eligible for graduation with the B.Sc. degree.
Courses with the prefixes ASTR, BIOC, BIOL, CHEM, COSC, DATA, EESC, MATH, PHYS, and STAT are considered Science courses, unless otherwise noted in the course description.

Otherwise, courses in Economics (ECON) and Psychology (PSYO) count as Arts credit only.
