V. International Study
Students registered in a Semester Abroad are recognized as University of Guelph students and thus fall under the rules and regulations of the University of Guelph. It should to be noted however, that many study abroad semesters involve the employment of sessional faculty from abroad. While every attempt is made to fully inform these faculty of the Senate regulations concerning academic procedures and evaluation of student work, there may be times when appeals by students are not handled in a fashion that would be appropriate under the University of Guelph guidelines. It is therefore recommended that any student who wishes to submit an appeal to Academic Review or request a grade reassessment should first contact the semester abroad coordinator for advice.
It will be the responsibility of the coordinator to refer the matter through the appropriate channels. In some cases this might be to a department chair, in others, through a dean. At all times the University of Guelph's rules and procedures will be adhered to. Given the distance between the University of Guelph and the host institution, the time deadlines in place for processing requests for academic review or grade reassessments will not be enforced. Students studying on an exchange should normally expect to abide by the rules and regulations of the host institution.
The University offers the following semester abroad programs, however, not all semester abroad programs are offered every year. Contact the Centre for International Programs, Day Hall, Level 2, for information on current offerings.
