VIII. Associate Diploma Regulations and Procedures




refer also to the section on Readmission, earlier in Chapter VIII

Students who meet one of the following 3 criteria must apply to Admission Services for readmission:

  1. were required to withdraw from their program for a period of 2 or more semesters;

  2. were suspended from the University for academic misconduct; or

  3. who have not registered at the University of Guelph for 6 or more consecutive semesters

Readmission to a program at the University of Guelph is not automatic. Students should consult Section IV-Admission information regarding appropriate admission requirements and deadline dates. Applicants for readmission should include a statement which outlines the basis for readmission. Criteria used for readmission may differ by academic program. Students considering readmission should consult with the appropriate program counselor/associate director/program co-ordinator regarding procedures and criteria for readmission to that program.

Students who withdraw without academic penalty after the termination of the official drop period for medical or psychological reasons must clear their re-entry in a subsequent semester through the dean or director of the college concerned. Students who withdraw on more than two occasions may be required to meet with the dean / director in order to clear their re-entry into a subsequent semester. At the discretion of the dean / director, the condition of re-entry may be a recommendation of either Student Health Services or the Counseling Unit of the Counseling and Student Resource Centre that re-entry is advisable. Students who wish to appeal the decision of the dean have recourse to the Senate Committee on Student Petitions or the College Appeals Board.

A student who wishes to be considered for readmission following a suspension for academic misconduct must make an application that will be judged on the basis of eligibility to continue. A student who is suspended for academic misconduct and also fails to meet the continuation of study requirements will normally be required to serve the associated penalties consecutively.

A student who has been expelled from the University for academic misconduct is not eligible for readmission to the University for at least five years. A student who wishes to be considered for readmission must petition the President to have the expulsion status removed (please refer to the Academic Misconduct Policy for detailed procedures).
