This information is for McMaster students in another program who are interested in transferring to the second year of the business program (Commerce II).
The commerce program can only accept a limited number of students each year. To be considered, you must meet the following criteria.
High School math courses can be completed at McMaster or through Virtual High School:
Virtual High School: http://www.ilc.org/index-main.php.
Any student choosing this option must submit an official transcript to the Student Experience Office (DSB 112) no later than Friday, August 2, 2019. Applications will not be assessed until all requirements are met.
If you do not qualify for a transfer you may want to consider a Minor in Business. The Academic Advisors for your current program will be able to provide you with more information.
If you are currently registered in another McMaster program, you can apply for an internal transfer to Commerce 2 in Mosaic during Program Selection in April. You must select “Honours Commerce” as one of the programs to which you’d like to transfer.
To find the Program Selection Tool in Mosaic search Student Centre > My Academics > Program/Plan/Subplan Selection.
The deadline to apply for a transfer from another McMaster program is Friday, April 26, 2019. If you are applying from a level 2 or 3 McMaster program, or if the program selection tool is not available to you, you must submit a hard copy Program Application Form to DSB 112.
You will be able to view the status of your application at the end of May in your MOSAIC. Students who are approved to complete course work in the Spring/Summer Session will not be assessed until all course work is completed.
You will be notified of our decision on your grade report at the end of May.
If your transfer to Commerce II is accepted, you may be eligible for up to 60 units of transfer credit (maximum).
