Executive Summary

In June 2015, Trent University and Fleming College began discussions regarding the existing General Arts & Science – University Transfer stream and the potential opportunity to expand it into the science and business disciplines. The goal of the pathway is to facilitate second-year entry into strategic Bachelor of Science majors and the Bachelor of Business Administration programs, in addition to the existing Bachelor of Arts second-year entry and limited transferability into the Bachelor of Science degrees. Moreover, both agreed to expand the pathway entry points from traditional Fleming recruitment and admission processes and Trent’s redirect upon application processes to include a Trent redirect of students facing suspension from the University. The project secured funding in October 2015. From November 2015 to August 2016 new courses were developed by Fleming and courses granted equivalency by Trent. Courses developed include: Preparatory Calculus, Calculus I (60 hrs.), Calculus II (60 hrs.), Biology I (60 hrs.), Biology II (60 hrs.), and Introduction to Management. All developed courses have received full equivalency approvals. Trent and Fleming are committed to a successful program launch and both institutions will continue to support student success through enhanced pathway opportunities.
