Graduate Early

Students are encouraged to create and follow an individualised graduation plan in order to avoid accumulating credits that are not needed for graduation and to allow departments to plan semester course schedules appropriately. See your advisor for a generic graduation plan based on a full-time student who does not need developmental courses and does not have transfer credit. Individual student plans will vary.

Please see your advisor to develop your individualised plan in Wolverine Track. Where possible, students should enrol in 15 credits each semester. See “15 to Finish” for more information on the financial and academic benefits of completing 15 credits a semester.

Students are also encouraged to enrol in the Summer semester to expedite graduation. By enrolling in 15 credits each semester, including summer, it may be possible to graduate in three years with a bachelor degree.
