Prerequisites Notes

One additional course is also required. If your mark is lower than 70% in senior year Chemistry you’ll need to take Chemistry 1801 which will add 4 credit hours to the program. If you don’t meet the admission requirements for direct entry to the Bachelor of Science in Forestry degree program, but you have a minimum admission average of 60% (and other conditions as may be required by the admitting faculty) you may be given conditional admission to the appropriate faculty in an entrance program.

If you intend to enroll in MATH 1003, Introduction to Calculus I, you must take a Placement Test which will be administered during Orientation week in September. Materials to prepare for this test are available at as well as from the Mathematics Departments in New Brunswick High Schools and UNB.

Based on your test scores, and the regulations set out by the Mathematics Departments, you’ll need to take either a Pre-Calculus course (Math 0863 UNBF or Math 1863 UNBSJ), a special section of Math 1003 that covers the material of the course over two semesters, or a regular (one semester) section of Math 1003. Please contact the Admissions Office for additional information.
