Commerce Qualification Year
Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
The Bachelor of Commerce Qualification Year offers a focused first year of study with all the courses you need to gain entry to the Bachelor of Commerce program upon completion. The Specialized Honours Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM) is a highly competitive program. Although spaces are limited, those who do not meet our entry requirements still have the option to pursue studies at York through our Bachelor of Commerce Qualification Year program. This alternative has been created to accommodate student applicants with good academic standing.
The Bachelor of Commerce Qualification Year is a pathway to entry into the Bachelor of Commerce program in your second year, conditional upon meeting a number of requirements in your first year:
• successful completion of 24 credits, including BCom Qualification Year required courses;
• achieving a final cumulative GPA of 5.0 (C+).
What happens after my Qualification Year?
Successful completion of your first-year requirements will allow you entry into the Specialized Honours Bachelor of Commerce in your second year.
What if I’m not successful in my Qualification Year?
Should you not be successful in completing these requirements, the courses you will take and the credits you obtain will allow you to pursue a number of other exciting programs in your area of interest such as Economics, Business Economics, Financial and Business Economics, Public Policy and Administration, and Business and Society. We will advise you of your options throughout your first year in order to take every step to ensure your success at York University and beyond.
