As an international student, you have the option of learning English at Seneca's English Language Institute (ELI) before starting your professional program. There are eight (8) levels in the ELI that are seven (7) weeks in length each. There are six (6) start dates per year: January, March, May, July, September and November.
You may apply directly to ELI without a professional program. We will use your English test score to place you in the most appropriate ELI level. If you do not have an English score, you will take a placement test when you arrive on campus.
Program Requirements All students in a York University Honours program must maintain an overall (all courses) grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 (C+ or 65%). For students in the Honours BScN program there are three additional requirements for courses: A minimum grade of C+ (65%) for all professional (NUR/HAP/HDP) courses. A “SATISFACTORY” grade in the clinical component of all practicum courses. A minimum grade of C (60%) for all other courses (PSY/LSO). In Years 1 and 2, your academic standing is evaluated at the end of each term. You will receive a transcript on Student Centre. It will contain a statement about whether or not you are eligible to continue in the BScN program. Academic Standing definitions for the BScN program are: Good – Successfully completed all professional courses with a term GPA* of 2.5 or greater. Probation- Failed one professional course or term GPA* is below 2.5. Must successfully complete all future professional subjects to remain in the program. No option to drop any professional courses. Withdrawn- Does not meet program progression requirements. Failed two or more professional courses. Additional Information Students who have been out of the program for longer than one year may be required to repeat credits previously attained. There are no partial credits. Students are allowed to retake a professional course once, provided they meet the requirements to remain in the program. Students should note that course availability and space considerations may preclude the possibility of repeating a course in the term they choose. When a student is allowed to repeat a course, the second grade will be the grade of record, and the only grade calculated in the student’s Program GPA. Both grades will be calculated in the Cumulative GPA. A course can be credited only once towards satisfaction of degree academic credit requirements. In order to transfer to York University, students must have successfully completed all required courses in Years 1 and 2 with a minimum program GPA of 2.5.
