VIII. Undergraduate Degree Regulations and Procedures

Dropping Courses

All course drops from a student's program for a particular semester are to be completed by the dates specified in the Chapter III--Schedule of Dates. Courses that are one semester long must be dropped by the last day of classes; two-semester courses must be dropped by the last day of classes in the second semester. The policy does not apply to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program. Please refer to the Conditions for the Continuation of Study in the DVM Program Information section of the undergraduate academic calendar.

The Academic Review Sub-Committee of the program in which the student is registered may grant a request to drop a course or courses after the deadline only if there are sufficient extenuating medical, psychological, or compassionate considerations (see Academic Consideration and Appeals). Students must submit written requests for a late drop, along with their supporting documentation, to their Program Counsellor no later than the 20th day of classes of the following semester.

Student who are granted a late course drop will have reference to the course completely removed from their transcript.
