12.6. Residence requirements

(Approved by the Senate on February 28, 2017)

The number of units a student must complete at the University of Ottawa is determined by the faculty concerned, taking into account the advanced standing granted.

For bachelor's programs involving the equivalent of three or four years of full time studies, including the Honours Bachelor in Translation (2 years) and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses, faculties must require that at least 50 percent of the units be completed at the University regardless of specific requirements, except in the case of formal Senate-approved agreements between the University of Ottawa and other institutions.

For programs involving the equivalent of one or two years of full time studies (B.Ed. and certificates), faculties must also require that 50 percent of the bachelor’s or certificate program be completed at the University of Ottawa.
