Continuing Student (Undergraduate Studies)

At McMaster, a Continuing Student is defined as a graduate from an undergraduate program who wishes to take undergraduate courses out of general interest, to upgrade, or to complete requirements for future applications to graduate studies or professional programs.

McMaster Graduates

If you have a McMaster undergraduate degree and wish to become a Continuing Student, you may enrol in courses through Mosaic. You do not need to apply for admission.

If you wish to pursue a second undergraduate degree at McMaster, you will need to apply – visit the Second Degree information page for details.   

Graduates from outside of McMaster

As a Continuing Student with a non-McMaster degree, you need to apply formally through OUAC.

To be eligible to take courses as a Continuing Student you will be expected to have an undergraduate university degree and at least a C average, with no failures in your final year’s work (or the equivalent, in the case of a degree taken through part-time studies), and academic records which are satisfactory to the Department and the Office of the Associate Dean of the appropriate Faculty.
