This message is intended 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 credits 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.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 credits from the Faculties of Arts, Education, Law, Social Science or the School of Management. Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
