VIII--Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures

Semester Level Calculation

In September, 1989, the Board of Undergraduate Studies approved the following procedure for the calculation of semester level.

Programs with highly structured Schedules of Studies (Associate Diploma, B.L.A., B.Sc. Eng., and D.V.M.) have semester levels as indicated in the Section IX--Undergraduate Degree Programs. All other programs determine semester level on the basis of successfully completed courses plus the number of courses in progress. To determine semester level for course selection in a future semester, the number of selected courses must also be included. As courses are dropped and added, or grades are received, the semester level must be adjusted accordingly.

Semester level is determined as follows:

Successfully Completed Courses and Courses In-progress Semester Level
6-10 2
11-15 3
16-20 4
21-25 5
26-30 6
31-35 7
36-40 8
41-45 9
46-50 (or more) 10

In some cases, the program counsellor may change the semester level to more closely reflect the number of semesters to be completed to graduation, for example where a student has completed additional courses in other institutions or other programs.
