York University students may earn a Cross-Disciplinary Certificate in Indigenous Studies in addition to fulfilling the requirements for an undergraduate degree. This certificate is open to students in all undergraduate Faculties.
To qualify for the Cross-Disciplinary Certificate in Indigenous Studies, students must complete 24 credits from a list of approved courses, with a cumulative grade point average in these 24 credits of at least 5.00.
Students are expected to register their entry to the certificate program with the unit administering the program, normally prior to completion of 36 credits of their undergraduate degree program. This procedure is intended to help keep students abreast of program related events and to ensure that students complete the program requirements in a timely fashion. Students are also expected to submit an application to graduate from the program. Refer to the Academic Standards section for details of the undergraduate certificate minimum standards.
