Pathway Details

Terms for renewal or cancellation

The agreement will be reviewed annually, or sooner in the event of major curriculum changes in either partner’s programs. This agreement may be terminated by either party. In this case, notice of one year is required. In the event of termination of the agreement, every effort will be made to ensure that students currently enrolled in the program will not be affected.

Eligibility for Pathway

To qualify for this agreement, students must have:

  • successfully completed Fleming College’s Earth  Resources Technician Co-op Diploma;
  • a minimum overall average of 75%

Environmental Geoscience is a competitive entry program. As a result, meeting the terms of the articulation agreement does not guarantee admission to the program.
