I am enrolled in a double degree. If I drop one degree, will I still have to meet the course transfer requirements?

Question:

I am enrolled in a double degree. If I drop one degree, will I still have to meet the course transfer requirements?

Answer:

Changing from a double to a single degree is considered an automatic transfer and you do not have to meet the usual course transfer requirements of credit points and/or Grade Point Average (GPA).

You have 2 options:

  1.  If you wish to formally make a course transfer from your double degree to a single degree (one of the degrees that you are currently enrolled in), you may do so when the course transfer form becomes available after the examination results are released for Session 1 (July) and Session 2 (December). Information regarding the timing of exam results release and applying for course transfer can be found on the web.
  2. Alternatively, you can remain admitted into your double degree. In this case, you will need to nominate that you wish to qualify with only the single degree when you fill in your 'I Expect to Complete' form to graduate.

If you choose the second option, your academic record will show that you were enrolled in the double degree but qualified in the single degree
, but your testamur (your graduation certificate) will show that you have been awarded the single degree.
