VIII. Associate Diploma Regulations and Procedures


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

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

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

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

  3. have not registered at the University of Guelph for six 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 counsellor regarding procedures and criteria for readmission to that program.

Students who withdraw on more than two occasions may be required to meet with the dean in order to clear their re-entry into a subsequent semester. At the discretion of the dean, the condition of re-entry may be a recommendation of either Student Health Services or Counselling Services that re-entry is advisable. Students who wish to appeal the decision of the dean have recourse to the Senate Committee on Student Petitions.

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).
