Before you start a program at FIC, you will take the FIC Math Check.
The completion of secondary school mathematics (or equivalent) at an acceptable level is required for entry into UTP Stage II in the Computing Science, Environment, and Engineering Science streams.
Once accepted to FIC, before you start a Business Administration, Computing Science, Environment, or Engineering Science program, you will be required to take the FIC Math Check, UTP Stage II students may be required to complete a Pre-Calculus course in the first term of UTP Stage II as a prerequisite to the required math course for their program. The Pre-Calculus course is additional to your required courses for Business Administration, Computing Science, Environment, and Engineering Science programs.
To enter the Science stream directly, students must have at a minimum Math 12 and two Grade 12 Science subjects (Biology 12, Chemistry 12, Physics 12). The Science Fundamentals Program provides students with the opportunity to advance their university studies while upgrading skills to meet UTP Stage II courses prerequisites. Students will be admitted into the Science Fundamentals program when:
a student does not have Grade 12 Math or has less than a 75% average in Grade 12 Math
a student does not have two science subjects meeting the following requirement:
65% average in Grade 12 Biology
60% average in Grade 12 Chemistry
60% average in Grade 12 Physics
Students with IELTS 6.5 with minimum 6.0 in Reading and Writing, TOEFL 82 (minimum 20 in all components), or equivalent, are exempt from the Academic Literacy Course. This determination is made at the time of admission if the student is eligible for exemption. Students who begin their studies at FIC in the Cornerstone program are exempt from ILS101/ILSA101.
