Commerce Major and Minor Information

Some students apply into a major upon admission to Ontario Tech via their OUAC application, while others choose to apply to the general Commerce degree. Students who enter into general Commerce may apply into a major before entering year 3 of the program. Students that were admitted into a major may also apply to change majors during this time.
Course requirements and descriptions for each major and minor can be found in the Academic Calendar. Program maps for each major and the general degree can be found on the program map page of the FBIT website.
Major applications must be submitted through the online Change of Program form on MyOntarioTech no later than March 31st.
