5 Program Regulations
  1.

  2. No student shall obtain more than one undergraduate degree from the Faculty of Business Administration.

  3. The Faculty of Business Administration may recommend that transfer credit for certain Business courses be awarded on the basis of successful completion of professional courses that lead to a professional designation (e.g. C.A., C.G.A., C.M.A.). Applications for transfer credit should be made through the Office of the Registrar.

  4. The Faculty of Business Administration may approve that credit for certain Business courses successfully completed through Memorial University of Newfoundland's former Extension Services Division be granted upon application to the Registrar for transfer credit evaluation.
