Joint Degree/Diploma Programs (with Ontario Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology)

The York Joint Programs offer students the opportunity to receive a university degree and a college diploma in five years, in what would otherwise be a seven-year requirement. These accelerated programs can begin either at the college or at York University (with the exception of the York-Humber Joint program) and are then completed at the partner institution. Students enrolled in Joint Programs must fulfill the requirements of both institutions before they are eligible to graduate.

Students who are enrolled in FES are required to complete a minimum of 90 credits within the first three years of the Joint program with a 5.0 grade point average (C+ average at York), including Core, Depth and General Education requirements. They are then required to submit an application to the Joint program at the respective College in December of their third year of study.

With the exception of the York-Humber Joint program: students who begin their Diploma at the college should apply to the Joint program in Environmental Studies through the normal York Admission process in the final year of their Diploma. Acceptance is contingent upon students successfully completing the Diploma with a minimum 3.0 grade point average at the college. Successful applicants will be awarded 60 block credits toward their BES program. Students who choose to opt out of the Joint program at York and attend another program will have their advanced standing re-evaluated.
