WE ACKNOWLEDGE

Lakehead University respectfully acknowledges its campuses are located on the traditional lands of Indigenous Peoples. Lakehead Thunder Bay is located on the traditional lands of the Fort William First Nation, Signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. Lakehead Orillia is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg. The Anishinaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy.

Lakehead University acknowledges the history that many nations hold in the areas around our campuses, and is committed to a relationship with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples based on the principles of mutual trust, respect, reciprocity, and collaboration in the spirit of reconciliation.

Welcome to Lakehead University, where students are empowered to seek the one-of-a-kind education that supports their unique academic journeys and dreams. Home to some of the brightest academic minds and innovative research opportunities, Lakehead University and its faculty members connect with you early and prioritize your needs — teaching you how to think, not what to think. We extend learning opportunities outside our classrooms, in our local communities, in our world-renowned labs, in the workplace, and to locations around the world. At Lakehead University, we honour the diversity of our students and encourage the celebration of many cultures and nations. Preparing for your future at Lakehead University is anything but ordinary. In fact, our family of over 66,000 alumni would say that their education at Lakehead prepared them for exceptional opportunities across the globe thanks to Lakehead’s small class sizes and nationally recognized commitment to undergraduate research opportunities. Open your world to the endless possibilities of an exceptional and unconventional education. Welcome to Lakehead, Dr. Moira McPherson President & Vice Chancellor Lakehead University

ALL ABOUT TRANSFERRING It is easy to transfer to Lakehead. Our pathway agreements and general transfer policies are designed to help you maximize your credits from your current or previous studies at either college or university – or even both!

1 2 3 4

GENERAL TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS For College And/Or University Students & Graduates If a transfer pathway does not exist for a program, college students (or graduates) will be assessed for transfer credits automatically. University students (or graduates) are assessed for transfer credits upon receipt of course syllabi.

MULTILATERAL PATHWAY For College Graduates Multilateral pathways are for college graduates from ANY accredited Ontario college. Graduates can enter directly into a specific Lakehead program in the first, second, or third year of study from a specific college program regardless of which Ontario college they attended.

BILATERAL PATHWAY For College Graduates This is an agreement between Lakehead University and a particular accredited college that allows college graduates of a specific program to enter directly into a specific Lakehead program in the first, second, or third year of study.

TYPES OF TRANSFER CREDIT The type of transfer credit you may receive depends on whether you enter into Lakehead through a bilateral or multilateral pathway, or by satisfying our general transfer requirements. In some cases, you may enter directly into Year 2 or 3 of the program. In other cases, you may receive either direct equivalency or unspecified equivalency credits.

DIRECT EQUIVALENCY A direct equivalency would mean that you received transfer credit for a specific course offered by Lakehead (e.g. Psychology 1100 - Introductory Psychology).

UNSPECIFIED EQUIVALENCY ENGINEERING POST-DIPLOMA COLLEGE TRANSFER PROGRAMS Direct Entry for Engineering Technologist Graduates The Faculty of Engineering at Lakehead-Thunder Bay offers five post-diploma engineering degree programs enabling qualified Engineering Technologist Graduates to earn a BEng degree in a minimum of a Summer + two regular academic years. See pages 20-21 for details.

If the coursework you have completed does not quite match any Lakehead courses, you may receive an unspecified transfer credit in a specific subject (e.g. Psychology 1_00 – First Year Unspecified Psychology Full Credit). As most programs have electives, you can use these unspecified transfer credits to fulfill those elective requirements.

We are here to help! Our Student Central team along with your Program Chair will help you understand the credits awarded and how they will be used towards your program at Lakehead. 10


UNIVERSITY LINGO EXPLAINED What is a(n)...?

Below are some common terms used that will be helpful as you explore program options.

If you have multiple interests and want to keep options open, you can consider a:

Undergraduate Degree - It is the first university credential you will be awarded upon graduation.

Minor - An optional collection of courses from a particular area of study that is different from your program and/or major.

Honours - A 4-year undergraduate degree with specialized and/or intensive courses at the 4th year level. Completion of a thesis or research-focused courses is normally a requirement of an Honours program.

Specialization - A defined collection of courses taken from a particular or variety of disciplines that complements the major.

Bachelors - A 3- or 4-year undergraduate degree that consists of a minimum of 15 or 20 full course equivalents, respectively.

Certificate - A professional or an applied focus that provides learning outcomes that are distinct from your program. Explore certificates in Geomatics, Business Information Technology, Public History, Environmental Sustainability, and more, including:

Major - A program involving one primary focus of study (e.g. English or Biology). Double Major - A program involving two focuses of study (e.g. History & Political Science). Concentration - A defined collection of courses that is embedded into, and complements, an Honours or Bachelor’s 4-year Program.

Entrepreneurship Certificate

Double Degree - Two undergraduate degrees from two different degree types that are completed at the same time and meet all the requirements for both degrees (e.g. Outdoor Recreation & Geography). Credit - The measurement unit for a course that indicates its relative weight within a program.

This program is open to non-business students enrolled in any degree program at Lakehead, and features a series of courses designed to improve the competence of individuals in setting up and running their own business. French Proficiency Certificate

A full-time undergraduate student in the Fall-Winter Term is one who is registered in more than three and one-half full course equivalents (i.e., someone who is registered in more than 3.5 FCEs). The normal course load is five full course equivalents (or higher). (Please refer to the specific program requirements in this Calendar.)

The Department of Languages offers a Certificate in French Proficiency at three levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced for students wishing to learn or be recognized for their French proficiency who are not taking a French Major or Minor.

A part-time undergraduate student in the Fall-Winter Term is one who is registered in three and one-half full course equivalents or fewer (i.e., someone who is registered in 3.5 FCEs or less).

Depending on your program of study, you may be able to pursue majors, double majors, minors, concentrations and more allowing you to further enhance your degree and customize it based on your interests and future career path.

POLITICAL SCIENCE

BIOLOGY

CHEMISTRY

SOCIAL WORK GENDER AND WOMEN’S STUDIES

GEOMATICS

} } } }

Major You can graduate after 4 years and upon successful completion of the program requirements. For example, if you choose to study Political Science, you will graduate after 4 years with a degree with a major in Political Science.

CRIMINOLOGY PSYCH

Double Major This is a three or four-year program involving two closely related disciplines. You will take enough courses to fulfill requirements to receive both Majors listed on your degree upon graduation.

OUTDOOR RECREATION

Concentration

GENDER AND WOMEN’S STUDIES

While you take courses within a main area of study (your major) you will also take a pre-defined selection of courses that complement your major. For example, you can earn a concentration in Gender and Women’s Studies while you complete your Social Work degree.

Certificate A professional or applied focus that provides learning outcomes that are distinct from your program. A complete list of Certificate Programs can be found within Lakehead University’s Academic Calendar.

ENGLISH

FRENCH

EDUCATION

} } }

Major/Minor While your main area of study is your major, you may choose to focus on another area of interest. A minor is an optional collection of courses from an area of study that differs from your major or program. For example, you may major in Criminology, but take enough elective courses in Psychology to declare a minor.

Double Degree You will graduate and receive two undergraduate degrees from two different areas of study. Courses are completed at the same time, and in conjunction, and you will meet requirements for both degree programs. For example, while studying Outdoor Recreation, you can take the required courses to graduate with both an Outdoor Recreation and Gender and Women’s Studies Degree.

Concurrent Education While you take courses in your Major and Minor areas of study, you will also be taking Teacher Education courses and completing student teaching placements at the same time. Additionally, you will have two “professional years” after you complete your Undergraduate degree that focus specifically on Teacher Education and feature over 100 days of Student Teaching. 11

This globallyrecognized hallmark of excellence guarantees a challenging and relevant curriculum delivered by the most highly-qualified faculty.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION & COMMERCE Q&A CAN I COMPLETE THE PROGRAM PART-TIME? Answer: Yes, students can choose to enrol in a part-time course load but course registration may be restricted due to prerequisites. We recommend you consult with a faculty advisor prior to application for guidance.

CAN I COMPLETE THE PROGRAM ONLINE? Answer: Although the program is not offered fully online, students can choose to register for online course options to supplement in-person course delivery. A faculty advisor can assist you in course advising.

IS CO-OP PLACEMENT REQUIRED? Answer: No, co-op is not mandatory. We do offer co-op as an option for all our Honours Bachelor of Commerce programs for those interested in an additional placement in their field.

EXCEPTIONAL ALUMNI, UNCONVENTIONAL CAREERS

Answer: Depending on the college courses that you have completed, you may be required to complete makeup courses. Some makeup courses must be completed prior to the start of the program, while others can be completed as part of the program. Students are highly encouraged to complete any makeup courses prior to the start of the program. If you are unable to complete them prior, this may elongate your program. You may also consider taking them through other Ontario universities. A faculty advisor can assist you in course advising.

Launch Your Future Career Forward A Lakehead business degree will help you fast track attaining a professional designation that will allow you to enter specific careers that require a certain set of skills and expertise. Here are a few examples: Accredited by the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of Ontario, Accounting majors graduate with all of the requirements of the CPA Prerequisite Education Program (PREP). After graduation, complete the Graduate Diploma in Accounting to earn advanced standing in the Professional Education Program (PEP). Lakehead’s courses have been approved by the Human Resources Professionals Association for use toward one of the Certified Human Resources designations (CHRP, CHRL, CHRE). Human Resources Management majors graduate with all of the courses required.

The Co-op Advantage A Co-operative/Internship option is available for all the BEng programs. Post-diploma College Transfer students can apply directly in third year, and will receive workshops on interviewing, resume preparation, and work performance. You will accumulate at least 16 months of paid, practical work experience and graduate a year later than students enrolled in the regular Bachelor of Engineering program.

Salvin Cartier BEng (Electrical) ’17, Research Engineer, Ford Motor Company “My time at Lakehead allowed me to attend a beautiful campus, further my academic knowledge and create lifelong friendships. Additionally, I was provided the resources to obtain an internship, which opened opportunities both domestically and internationally upon graduation.” Where will your Lakehead degree take you?


ENGINEERING Q&A HOW LONG ARE THE POST-DIPLOMA ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAMS? Answer: Each program is a minimum of two academic years (September to April) in length following a series of transition courses taken during the summer prior to the start of the first full academic year of study. You will join Lakehead’s graduate Engineering Technologists in the 3rd year of the 4-year degree program. DIPLOMA + 2 YEARS* = ENGINEERING DEGREE * Plus make up courses, where applicable. The make up courses can normally be integrated into the regular program of study. On advice from their Engineering Department Chair, some students take courses such as Complementary Studies in the next Spring/Summer session to accommodate make up courses during the regular academic year.

WHAT ARE THE ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY? Answer: Applicants must have a diploma in engineering technology from a community college, or the equivalent, with an average* of at least 70% (GPA = 3.0 on a 4.0 point scale, B Grade) in the final year of their program to be eligible for admission consideration. OR Work experience makes a difference. Applicants must have two or more years of relevant industrial experience acquired after the completion of a diploma in engineering technology from a community college or the equivalent, with an average* of at least 65% (GPA = 2.5 on a 4.0 point scale, C+ Grade) in the final year of their program to be eligible for admission consideration. *This average is based on the marks/grade received by the applicant on their first attempt in the required courses of the final year of their technology program.

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO SUBMIT? Answer: Official transcripts are requested through OUAC. If you are currently enrolled in the final year of your technology program, please send updated transcripts showing your fall term (second-last term) marks and winter term (final term) course registration as soon as possible. Applicants will be notified if additional documents are required.

WHAT WILL IT COST - TUITION, BOOKS, ACCOMMODATIONS, ETC? Answer: Current academic year tuition and fees can be found at lakeheadu.ca/ current-student/tuition-fees. Based on the 2020-2021 fees for Canadian/Permanent residents: Fall/Winter tuition and fees cost approximately $9,000, and tuition and fees for the Summer Transition program is approximately $5,000. Approximately $2,500 is needed for books/supplies. Accommodation costs vary depending on your choice. Oncampus residence accommodation from July - April, including the Summer Transition and the regular Fall & Winter academic year, is available.

WHAT IF MY ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM IS IN A DIFFERENT AREA OF SPECIALIZATION THAN THE FIVE DISCIPLINES YOU OFFER? Answer: Since most engineering technology specialties are very similar to one of our five programs, we are normally able to admit students from most technology programs. The applicant’s transcripts and the college calendars are examined to determine if core courses are missing in the applicant’s technology program. If core courses are missing, you will be asked to take “make up” courses from the first and second year of our engineering programs. It is essential that students have the background in the core courses of the program in order to have the knowledge necessary to succeed at the engineering degree level.

MY DIPLOMA FINISHES IN THE SUMMER. CAN I STILL START IN THE FALL WITHOUT SUMMER TRANSITION? Answer: Typically, all college transfer students are required to complete our Summer Transition. Please contact our Faculty of Engineering directly for review.

WHAT COURSES WILL I TAKE DURING THE SUMMER TRANSITION? Answer: You will be required to take a series of transition courses during the months of July and August. Lectures typically begin the day following Canada Day (July 1). All students are required to take two engineering mathematics courses; Engineering 3021 ‘Analysis A’ in July and Engineering 3022 ‘Analysis B’ in August. Students are also required to take two engineering/science courses concurrently with these courses. Refer to Faculty of Engineering Summer Transition Schedule for updates: lakeheadu.ca/programs/faculties/ engineering/college-transfer-program/ summer-transition-schedule

HOW DO I APPLY FOR THE BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING COLLEGE TRANSFER PROGRAM? Answer: See page 24. Attend an upcoming webinar or college visit to learn more. Visit: lakeheadu.ca/programs/faculties/engineering/collegetransfer-program/college-visits

WHAT IS THE ADMISSIONS TIMELINE? Answer: Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Your application can be assessed once your transcripts and other required documentation is received. Check your myInfo portal and your Lakehead University email account frequently for updates.

Stephanie Seymour MScF ’16 Management Trainee Ontario Power Generation

“Everywhere I went, I found a friendly face and support when I needed it. My Lakehead experience was exceptional.” Where will your Lakehead degree take you?

Stewardship allows for the sustainable extraction and utilization of products such as wood, biofuels, bioproducts, food, and natural medicines. Most forested landscapes in Ontario and Canada are publicly owned, and as such, are also important for recreational pursuits. Lakehead’s programs will prepare you to take an active and responsible role in the stewardship and future sustainability of Canada’s most important resources.

Common First Two Years Whether you are interested in the Honours Bachelor of Environmental Management (HBEM) or the Honours Bachelor of Science in Forestry (HBScF), you will follow a common curriculum for the first two years of your program. After the second year, you select one of six specializations for your program. Acquiring a broad understanding of the topics and issues surrounding natural resources management will enable you to better understand and pursue your areas of interest and ensure the best career path possible.


NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT Q&A WHAT IS NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT?

SELECT ALLIED PROGRAMS

Answer: Natural resources management is the practice of environmental stewardship for the outcome of reaching a balance of ecological sustainability, economic viability and societal acceptance. It includes the conservation of wildlife, clean water, scenic aesthetics, respect for First Nations people, and the continued best practices in resource development and extraction.

Lakehead University welcomes qualified college graduates from across Canada. The following list represents select college programs deemed ideal for this transfer opportunity; however, other two- or three year related programs will be evaluated on an individual basis for transferability options.

WHY CHOOSE NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT AT LAKEHEAD?

• Sault College: Forest Conservation Technician, Fish & Wildlife Conservation Technician, Environment Technician & Technologist

Answer: Lakehead University has long been known as a leader in Natural Resource Management in Canada. One of our oldest programs, Forestry stands as one of the few degrees in Ontario. There’s no better place to study our natural resources than in the heart of NW Ontario.

• Fleming College: Ecosystem Management Technician & Technologist, Environmental Technician & Technologist, Fish & Wildlife Technician & Technologist, Forestry Technician

Students that choose our programs have a passion for working outdoors and an affinity for nature and wildlife. They want to learn about policies that govern the forestry industry, the environment, and fish & wildlife. They consider themselves stewards of the earth and want to influence areas of: urban forestry and nature practices, natural resources protection and sustainable use. Field school, exchanges, co-op and outdoor lab & research all emphasize our experiential learning commitment. With a 100% employment rate our graduates are set up for success in their field.

ARE THE PROGRAMS ACCREDITED? Answer: The Honours Bachelor of Science in Forestry programs (non-co-op and co-op) are nationally accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board. This signifies that graduates of these programs meet the academic requirements for membership in provincial professional forest associations in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Graduates are qualified for active membership in the Canadian Institute of Forestry, a national association of scientists and practitioners in the fields of renewable resources management and research. In addition, all graduates of our Honours Bachelor of Science in Forestry are eligible to apply to the Ontario Professional Foresters Association (O.P.F.A.) to become a Registered Professional Forester (R.P.F.).

WHAT ARE THE ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS? Answer: Applicants who have completed a two-year Natural Resources or Forestry Technician or Technology Diploma program (or another allied program) with a minimum 70% (GPA = 3.0 on a 4.0 point scale, B Grade) in the final year of their program are eligible for admission consideration to year 3 of either the Honours Bachelor of Science in Forestry (HBScF) program, co-op or non co-op, or the Honours Bachelor of Environmental Management (HBEM) program, co-op or non co-op. Applicants with two or more years of relevant career experience acquired after the completion of a diploma with a minimum 65% (GPA = 2.5 on a 4.0 point scale, C+ Grade) in the final year of their program are eligible for admission consideration.

WHAT SUMMER TRANSITION COURSES WILL I TAKE? Answer: Summer Transition takes place July-August each year for our incoming diploma transfer students. Transition students will typically register in the following courses. • NRMT-0290-AA - WAC 2 (Writing Across the Curriculum) • NRMT-2710-AA - Nat. Res. Science A - Statistics • NRMT-2711-AA - Nat. Res. Science B - Soils, Water & Chemistry, and Modelling & Ecology • NRMT-2712-AA - Nat. Res. Science C - Tree Development, and Forest Economics Some will need to switch into NRMT-2713-AA at a later date but that will be determined once the Program Chairs review your college transcripts. Mandatory Field School immediately follows Transition School.

WHAT ARE SOME CAREER OPPORTUNITIES? Career opportunities include: forestry consultants, environmental assessment, and ecosystem rehabilitation, water and soil testing facilities, forest-based industries, environmental consulting firms, conservation authorities, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

WHAT’S MANDATORY FIELD SCHOOL? Answer: Field school is an opportunity for students of all years to hone their skills with team-based learning at a variety of off-campus facilities. Students visit natural environments and professional networks in local, regional, and international settings.
