VII. Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures

Supplemental Privilege Procedures (also see Failed Courses)

Student's Responsibilities

The student must request a supplemental privilege by submitting the request for academic consideration to the Academic Review Sub-Committee no later than the fifth class day of the subsequent semester. Students are encouraged to submit their request before classes begin to allow for receipt of a decision within the add period. The granting of the request is normally limited to the described special circumstances having due regard for the student's performance in the course. Course requirements and the student's previous performance may play a significant role in determining whether a privilege is appropriate and/or feasible.

In the case of an examination supervised by the Office of Registrarial Services, it is the student's responsibility to appear on the correct date and time as designated by the Office of Registrarial Services.

If the requirement is beyond an examination supervised by the Office of Registrarial Services, the student must contact the faculty within five days of notification in order to clarify the details of the condition. Students are advised to have the faculty complete a form indicating the exact nature and due dates of the supplemental requirements, which may also include the satisfactory completion of an examination supervised by the Office of Registrarial Services (refer to Chapter III - Schedule of Dates). If the student is unable to make contact with the faculty, the Program Head responsible for offering the course must be contacted. If the required contact is not made the University will assume that the student does not intend to complete the requirements, and the supplemental privilege will be cancelled.
