B.Comm. Requirements

The Bachelor of Commerce program is a 4-year program, provided you take ten classes per academic year. Some students choose to take fewer classes and take a bit longer to complete their studies. You will apply for a major in January of your second year; admission to majors is based on your cumulative average in the program to the end of Term 1 in your second year. 

B.Comm. Program Overview

  • Average Requirements

    If you attempt a minimum of 18 credit units (May-April) you are required to maintain a 60% yearly average to remain in good standing. If your yearly average is below 60% or if you fail 50% or more of the courses you attempt in a year, a Faculty Action will be placed on your record, and you may be required to discontinue your studies for one or more years, depending on the circumstances.

    You are eligible to receive a Bachelor of Commerce (B.Comm.) degree once you have passed all required courses with a grade of 50% or higher and earned a cumulative, major and current year weighted average (May 1-April 30) of at least 60%.

  • Mid-terms, Assignments and Final Examinations

    If you miss a mid-term examination or an assignment, please contact your professor to make alternate arrangements.

    The final examination schedule (date, time and location) is made available approximately 8 weeks prior to the start of final exams in the Fall and Winter terms. The exams website also includes information about potential exam conflicts (two exams at the same time, three exams in a row, etc.).

    We will consider deferred exam requests for final exams based on medical or compassionate reasons supported with documentation. If you miss a final exam, you will need to speak with an Edwards Undergraduate Programs Advisor within three (3) days of the missed exam. If you miss a final exam due to travel and/or vacation plans you will not be approved for a deferred exam.

First Year at Edwards

As a new Edwards student, you probably have a lot of questions about how to create your schedule, register for classes, and pay your tuition and fees. We encourage you to review the information below to ensure that you are prepared to begin your studies. 

  • Create Schedule and Register

    We encourage you to review the course descriptions and pre-requisite requirements within the course and program catalogue to ensure you are planning your course selections appropriately. 

    Course and Program Catalogue 

    Once you decide on which courses you want to take you need to decide when you will take them.  You may search the course offerings to see the dates and times each course is offered.

    Search for Classes 

    Print off a class schedule worksheet to keep track of the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs), days and times of each course offering. As an alternative you can also use the Plan Ahead function in PAWS.

    When registration opens, you will need to enter in each CRN to register for the appropriate course and section. 

    You may register for your courses through the Registration Channel in PAWS. 

  • Add or Drop Classes

    After registering for your classes, keep in mind that there are add/drop deadlines to allow you to make changes to your schedule if you need to. You may change your registration within PAWS in accordance with these deadlines.

    If you withdraw from a course prior to the withdrawal deadline there is no academic penalty, which means that a “W” will appear on your transcript and this will not affect your average.

  • COMM 101.3 Requirement

    As a new student to Edwards, you will be taking COMM 101.3 and its respective lab.  The lab has some requirements that you can find below.

    COMM 101 Lab Requirements

  • Tuition and Fees
