Thinking of changing your major to Criminology? Unlike other programs at York, where there are few restrictions on changing majors, becoming a Criminology major is a competitive process. This reflects the high demand for the program and thus restrictions on our ability to accommodate new students. Each year a limited number of spots (normally 25) are made available for current York students wishing to transfer into the Criminology program. All decisions are based exclusively on GPA. While the cutoff varies from year-to-year depending on the strength of the applicant pool, students with a GPA of 6.5 or higher should stand a very good chance of gaining acceptance to the program.
In order to apply for transfer to the Criminology program, students must complete the following steps between February 1 and May 1, 2013:
(1) Submit a change of major request through the registrar’s office website under the Summer 2013 Session http://www.registrar.yorku.ca/program/change/
(2) Send an e-mail notification to the Criminology Program Office (email@example.com) that you have applied for transfer into the program. Please Note: students who fail to notify the program directly via e-mail will NOT be eligible for admission.
All students will be notified of the results of the application process (via the online request system) on or before June 15, 2013.
