* This course is beyond the requirements of the programs in science.
** Minimum of 9 units must be from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management.

For students registered in the Faculty of Science: If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the units as follows:
1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with electives;
2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with courses from either discipline at the same level or above.

Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Academic report accordingly.
