BA Degree

Graduating with a BA Degree

Students must successfully complete (pass) at least 90 credits which meet Faculty of Arts and program requirements. The cumulative grade point average for all courses taken must be at least 4.0.

Courses taken Beyond the Normal Maximum-in Order to Raise Cumulative Grade Point Average

Students in a BA program who have passed 90 credits in accordance with Faculty and program requirements, but whose cumulative grade point average is below 4.0 may attempt to raise their average to 4.0 by taking up to 12 additional credits, to a maximum of 102 credits. These courses must be above the 1000 level and must be taken at York; regulations on equivalent and excluded courses apply.

Courses taken Beyond the Normal Maximum

Students in a BA program who successfully complete more than 90 credits and whose cumulative grade point average is at least 4.0 and less than 5.0 will have all credits counted towards their BA and their cumulative grade point average.

Transferring to Honours

Students in a BA program who become eligible for Honours are transferred to an Honours program. Students who have graduated from the Faculty of Arts with a BA degree and whose record makes them eligible for Honours may pursue an Honours degree in the same subject.
