Program Description

The School of Science offers university-transfer courses in mathematics and in the earth, life and physical sciences. Students can complete a one-year Certificate of Science, a two-year Diploma of Northern Science or a four-year Bachelor of Science degree.

The Certificate of Science is awarded for the completion of the equivalent of one year of full-time university-level study (30 credits) in the sciences that meets the requirements below.

Admission Requirements

To be eligible for admission students must satisfy the prerequisites for any two of the required courses in the program, such as English 12 or Math 12 (Principles or Precalculus) or Chemistry 11 or Physics 12.

Other Requirements

In addition to passing all the required courses, the student must:

  • Complete 50% of the course work at Yukon College
  • Maintain a 2.00 cumulative GPA (C average) across the required courses

Yukon First Nations Core Competency

Yukon College recognizes that a greater understanding and awareness of Yukon First Nations history, culture and journey towards self-determination will help to build positive relationships among all Yukon citizens. As a result, you will be required to achieve core competency in knowledge of Yukon First Nations. For details, please see www.yukoncollege.yk.ca/yfnccr.


Students planning to transfer to a university can either complete the Certificate of Science or they can match their course selections to the entrance requirements of the degree program of their choice. The Certificate of Science is designed for students who wish to transfer into an Engineering program, or into the second year of a Bachelor of Science program at a Canadian university.


Each student will construct their study plan in consultation with a program advisor who will take into account their long-term goals, level of preparation and external commitments. Many permutations are possible to accommodate students’ specific situations.


Tuition for credit programs is calculated per course credit. See Tuition and Fees.
