We will make our decisions May 29 - June 9.

July 4. You can access the Student Centre to view your enrollment time.

July 4.  However, remember that loading courses in your shopping cart does not mean that you are in the course.  You must register for the course starting with your enrollment appointment time and going to the end of enrollment July 29.

July 10-18 - see your enrollment appointment time on SOLUS.

August 22.  You will be allowed to add up to 18 units per term

July 31 - August 18.  At this time there is nothing we can do to help you with courses etc.  Please do not contact staff at this time.

**Important - Tuition is due September 1st (including outstanding debts).**

We will make our decisions May 29 - June 9.

Email us and we will look at your situation and if you are able to take the course we will email you a permission number so you can add the course on SOLUS.

Once you have your unofficial mark, send this to us and we will give you a permission number so you can add the course on SOLUS. 

You will need to look at which of the courses is a core course to your program and ensure you take that course. The scheduling is done by the timetabling office and we cannot change it. 

  1. First Step.  Go to SOLUS and run your Academic Advisement Report.  If you notice something is not satisfied and you feel it should be, come by the office and see Denise or Katherine.
  2. Second Step.  Ensure you apply to graduate.
  • BCHM:  You will be pre-loaded to your course courses.
  • LISC: You will receive an email with a google document for you to pre-select your 4th year courses.  This happens in June.  We will ask for ALL pertinent information at that time.  Once courses have been assigned they will be pre-loaded.

LISC: You will be asked to do it when you are submitting your 4th year course pre-selection.

  • BCHM:  Please send an email to biochem@queensu.cawhen you have reached an agreement with a supervisor.
  • LISC: Please send an email to lifesci@queensu.ca with your name, student number, supervisor, and which 499 project it will be (i.e. ANAT, EPID, CANC, MICR, NSCI, PATH, PHAR, PHGY).
  • BCHM:  You are responsible to add your third year courses.
  • LISC SSP:  You are responsible to add your third year courses.  You need to ensure you choose the proper BCHM courses for the Sub-Plan you want to be in (ie. BCHM 310 or BCHM 315/316).  If you are not sure, then you should choose BCHM 310 to keep all your options open.

Change of Plan happens beginning May 15 until May 26. 

BCHM:  All students remain as a MAJ until a decision is made in 4th year and a research project is secured.

Yes.  You can go on exchange as an SSP student. 

LISC:  The only impediment is if you cannot find an equivalent to BCHM 310 then you can only be in the sub-plan of Biomedical Sciences.  All other sub-plans require BCHM 310.

 

  1. First Step: Email lifesci@queensu.ca or Biochem@queensu.ca the following information:  name, student number, university you plan to attend, which term and/or terms you will be away.
  2. Second Step: The Life Sciences and Biochemistry Program office will send you what courses have been previously assessed and their equivalency.  This is a good starting point for determining if your approved exchange school has compatible courses that will work for your plan requirements.
  3. Third Step:  The IPO has  information on possible elective courses that have been approved for Queen’s equivalency, listed by country and partner exchange university on their website:  http://www.queensu.ca/ipo/outgoing-students/exchange/find-university     
  4. Fourth Step:  If there are other science courses that you are hoping to take on exchange, it is the student’s responsibility to provide a full electronic course outline (please do not just send a link) to our office for review.  This information will be added to our data base and will assist other students planning on going on exchange (this year or in future). 
  5. Fifth Step: Confirm to our office by email all the courses that you plan to take on exchange with your understanding of how they will transfer back. 
  6. Upon return from exchange:  Only if there are issues and concerns about your fourth year courses after your exchange, please arrange to set up a meeting with Dr. Kawaja, Associate Dean and Life Sciences. 

 

If you became a LISC or BCHM student before September 2016 you are required to complete BIOL 205 for your degree.

 

Send an email to lifesci@queensu.ca or biochem@queensu.ca and tell us which course you require a tutor.  We will send you a list of graduate students who are willing to tutor.  You contact the tutor and discuss your needs and come to an agreement on payment.

 

Send your request as a paragraph to either lifesci@queensu.ca or biochem@queensu.ca   We DO NOT send attachments with the weekly update.  Please have your request in by 9:00 am on Monday mornings.
