1 FACULTY OF LIBERAL ARTS AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT OF EQUITY STUDIES DEGREE PROGRAMS Information for Continuing Students in a Grandparented Program Students who were registered in a degree program formerly in the Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies or the Faculty of Arts have been moved to the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies. Grandparenting provisions have been developed for students continuing in these degrees. Grandparented rules allow students to complete their studies following the rules of the programs they were in prior to the Fall/Winter 2009-2010 session. This includes all major and degree requirements including general education requirements and upper level requirements, as well as the electives or required credits outside the major. Students who continue in their original program have until the end of the summer 2016 session to complete their current program under the grandparented rules.
