University of Guelph 1997-98 Associate Diploma Calendar

VIII--Associate Diploma Regulations and Procedures


Conditions for Graduation

One condition for graduation is that a pass standing must have been obtained in the courses of the schedule of studies for the division in which the student is enrolled. A further consideration for graduation is that the student must have completed a minimum of 14 courses at grade of 60% or better in the four semesters of the Associate Diploma programs.

Application for Graduation

An "Application for Graduation" will be forwarded to each student registered in semester 4. If the student plans to graduate at the end of that semester, the application is to be returned by the date noted on the form.

Students who have not received an "Application for Graduation" form one week before the final date for submission of applications should contact the convocation clerk. It is the responsibility of the student to submit the completed form prior to the deadline date.

Applications for each convocation ceremony must be submitted by the deadline dates specified in Section III--Schedule of Dates. Late applications will be accepted for up to 10 working days after the due date with the submission of a late fee (refer to Section VI--Schedule of Fees). After 10 working days late applications will not be accepted but will be held for a subsequent ceremony.

Graduation Fee

The diploma graduation fee will be assessed when the student registers in the fourth semester.


Students must satisfy the schedule of studies requirements for the Associate Diploma Calendar in effect at the time of their last admission to the program if possible.

Time Limitations

The approved program must be completed within five consecutive calendar years from the time of initial registration at the University. This applies to part-time as well as full-time students.

Students, regardless of program, who do not register in their program of studies for 6 or more consecutive semesters are required to apply for readmission. Students who are studying on exchange programs, study abroad, or work terms are considered to be registered at the University.

Academic Residence Requirements

The academic residence requirement is registration as a full-time student for four semesters, or the equivalent as a part-time student. A student registered as part-time may count a semester of residence credit when the total courses taken equal the normal semester course load of a full-time student in the program. The student must be registered for at least one semester as a full-time student.

University of Guelph courses include courses taken on exchange and on study abroad programs. Letter of permission courses are not included.


In order for a student to graduate with a program, the specialization must be completed as listed in the Associate Calendar specified for graduation.
