Students who wish to participate in any EE activity must meet the eligibility criteria listed below:

  • registered in the Faculty of Social Sciences in a degree program;
  • in good academic standing with the university (not on academic probation);
  • in good financial standing with the university (no outstanding financial accounts on the student record); and,
  • completing a minimum of 18 units during the current Fall/Winter Term.

Other students who may be eligible, but are required to pay a $50 administration fee are those who meet the above criteria and are:

  • registered in fewer than 18 units in the Fall/Winter Term; or,
  • Arts & Science or Humanities students who are registered in a combined Honours degree program with a Social Sciences discipline.

If you fall into either of these categories, please contact us.

Please Note: Alternate or additional eligibility requirements may be applied to individual EE activities and will be indicated as such on the website.


Limiting Student Access to Participate:

EE reserves the right to limit student access to one or more activities for a determinant amount of time for reasons including, but not limited to:

  • failure to complete requirements of an existing EE activity that is not normally recorded on the student transcript (e.g. Career Placement, USRA, Student Experience Grant, etc.);
  • any student action where the reputation of the student, and/or EE, the Faculty of Social Sciences and/or McMaster University may be compromised;
  • any situation where a student knowingly submits false, misleading or unauthentic/plagiarized information in an application or document; and,
  • submission of an application that is incomplete, inaccurate and/or that is deemed unsuitable by EE staff.

 In the case where a student's ability to participate in EE activities is limited or revoked, the student will be notified in writing as soon as possible.
