Specific Notes for Level 3

These are specific notes for students enrolling in Level III:

It is possible to overload (take up to 3 extra units) if your average from the previous Fall/Winter session is at least 7.0 (70%). Overloading is done at your own risk.

Remember that you have to meet the requirements for non-commerce electives. You cannot substitute commerce electives for non-commerce courses.

If you are interested in the internship program but are not taking 30 units this year, you can still be considered as long as:

  • Your cumulative GPA is at least 7.0 (70%) by the end of Summer, Level II.
  • You successfully passed Commerce 2IN0 in Level II.
  • You are enrolled full-time in Level III (at least 9 units per term).
  • You have no fewer than 18 units owing for your degree at the end of Winter, Level III.
  • You completed the separate application process for the BCom with Internship Program.

If you do not qualify for the Honours Commerce program this year, there is a second opportunity. By one of the formal review times (in May or August) you must:

  • Have completed at least 54 units of coursework.
  • Have a GPA of at least 5.0 (63%).
  • Have failed no more than 6 units since starting Level II.

Duplicate Course Registration

Students may not register and hold seats in the same course for both terms if it is a single term course. This prevents your fellow students from getting seats in preferred sections of required and elective courses.

If you do not successfully complete a course, and would like to repeat it, you may take the course again in a subsequent term as per McMaster’s Repeat Policy.
