VII. Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures


Program and Calendar Requirements

The conditions for graduation are regulated by the programs, and program-specific conditions for graduation are outlined in the Schedule of Study for each program listed in this calendar. Students must satisfy the schedule of studies requirements for the calendar in effect at the time of their admission to the program or at the time of any subsequent change in program or area of emphasis. Where students select an “area of emphasis”, the calendar used to determine the schedule of studies is the same as the calendar used for the area of emphasis. Changes in areas of emphasis do not necessarily affect the calendar used to determine the schedule of studies. Students may declare a schedule of studies from an alternate calendar if program approval is obtained. Any such request must be made in writing to the relevant Academic Advisor.

Students who are on suspension for academic misconduct will not be permitted to graduate during the period of the suspension.

In addition to meeting all program specific course and credit requirements, students must have a minimum 60% cumulative average in order to be eligible for graduation. Students will not normally be eligible to graduate while on Probationary status or Required to Withdraw status. A student denied graduation while on Probationary status or Required to Withdraw status may submit an appeal for Academic Consideration. A request for Academic Consideration should be made by the student to the Academic Review Sub-Committee.
