Preamble The Transfer Statement addresses the requirements for USST BAP studentstransferring to UFV after two years of study at USST. In addition to therequirements described below, all USST students will need to meet UFV’s EnglishProficiency Requirements and have an accumulated GPA of 2.5 (75%).
UFV’s English language requirements for study in academic programs areas follows: IELTS – overall score of 6.5 with aminimum band score of 6.0 TOEFL score of 88(iBT)
Students whoselanguage proficiency score is less than that specified above will be requiredto take one full term of English upgrading providing the applicant has aminimum language score as follows: IELTS – overall score of 6.0 with aminimum band score of 5.5 TOEFL score of 79(iBT)
The Model Students coming from USST’s BAP program can complete UFV’s courses required to earn aBScdegree with a major in Physics at UFV.Depending on courses each student selects tostudy at UFV, s/he may complete their undergraduate education with two degrees– one from UFV and one from USST  providedthey meet the requirements of both institutions.
Completion of UFV’s Requirements for a BSc (PhysicsMajor) Degree USST students who wishto continue their studies at UFV to meet UFV’s BSc in Physics Major degree requirements will need to make formal application to UFV’s BScPhysics Major Degree in order to be formally admitted to the degree program.The degree pathway for USST’s BAP students who elect to complete a BSc Physicsdegree at UFV will be as follows:
USST students coming to study at UFV in Physics are admitted to study at the 3^{rd} year level providing they have completed the requirements of USST’s Fundamental (Science) Curriculum (54 USST credits) and 6 additional credits from USST’s “General Curriculum”. Within those 60 credits, USST students are required to have successfully completed the following USST courses from the Fundamental Curriculum:
Methods of Mathematical Physics A  22001350 Theoretical Mechanics  22000370 Higher Mathematics  22000210 & 22000220 Electro Magnetics  22000090

Option 2H  Completion of UFV’s Requirements for a BSc(Physics Major) Honours Degree
The same as for amajor, but the students should also meet all the honours requirements here. The extrarequirements over the major for the honours degree can be taken here, andinclude
Phys 302 Optics Phys 311Statistical Mechanics Phys 322 or Phys412 Advanced electromagnetism Phys 351 QuantumMechanics Phys 451 AdvancedQuantum Mechanics Two of : Phys342,372,382,383,392,485 upper level labs One more physicscourse that has a third year prerequisite Math 255 Math 322 One math coursenumbered 300 and above (312 recommended) One more computerbased course (Comp xxx, Phys 393, 484,485,493,Math 316) Two other coursesfrom; (Astro 103,104,Chem 113,114,Bio 111,112,Math 125,370,Bus xxx,Econ xxx,,Arts xxx.
Honours Credits Students require132 credits At least 54 upperlevel credits At least 45 upperlevel credits from physics or math At least 39 upperlevel credits from physics NOTE: The calendar shall be taken as the final arbiterin the case of a difference with this list
PLEASE NOTE: That all students must satisfy UFV’s “residency requirement” by taking at least 30 credits from UFV to receive a UFV degree. That in order to qualify for a UFV degree Major, at least 15 upper level credits in the discipline of the Major must be completed at UFV. That USST students who apply to UFV who do not have the transfer credit package as outlined above will not be accepted under this agreement and their applications will be assessed on an individual basis in order to determine if they will be admitted to UFV and what transfer credit they may be assigned.
