We've collected some of our most popular planning tools, including our program planning worksheets and resources from our Coop and Career office. Click on the faculty that you are interested in, and start exploring.

Please Note: Effective Fall 2020, ENGL 135 has been changed to ATWP 135. ATWP 135 is open to all students and satisfies the Academic Writing Requirement; this course is now offered by the new Academic and Technical Writing Program. All program worksheets have been updated to reflect the new course code.
The fine print
Students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registrations and for the completion of all program requirements as specified in the UVic Academic Calendar. Although every attempt has been made to ensure that the information on this worksheet is accurate, in the case of any discrepancy the Academic Calendar must be considered the definitive authority.

Program planning worksheets provide a visual overview of the course requirements for programs within the Faculty of Science. The worksheets are organized with a four-year period in mind, but given your academic plans it may take longer to complete your program. You're always encouraged to meet with an adviser to review the worksheet and go over your course plans.
