Changing Registration Status
Students who register but are unable to get into a course because it is full may be included on a wait list. The wait list procedure will be provided at the time of registration.
Adding or Changing a Course
Students may add a course, or change sections within the first week of classes. Late additions after the first week of a semester require permission of instructor(s) and/or Dean, and require completion of a Request for Late Course Registration form, which must be submitted to the Registration Centre. Students changing from audit to credit, or credit to audit, must also submit a Student Record Change form signed by their instructor(s).
Withdrawal from a Course, Program, or the University
Students wishing to withdraw must do so officially. If students officially withdraw from a course, by applying at the Registration Centre within eight weeks after commencement of the term, the course(s) will be removed from the official transcript. A grade of F (Grade Point 00) will be assigned at the end of the semester if no official withdrawal form is submitted to the Registration Centre.
In the event of demonstrated exceptional circumstancessuch as death in the immediate family, a students illness or accident, serious emotional problems, or an error on the part of the Universitya student may be able to withdraw without academic penalty from a course or program, after the deadline, with the approval of the instructor and Dean of Instruction. In cases where a student is withdrawing from all courses, the request for late withdrawal is subject to approval of the Registrar.
Students must complete a Late Withdrawal form, citing reasons for withdrawal. Late Withdrawal forms are available from the Registration Centre.
Late withdrawals will be considered only up to one year from completion of the course.
Withdrawal from Accelerated Courses
Students who wish to withdraw from accelerated courses (7-week courses) must do so officially by applying at the Registration Centre within five weeks after commencement of the term. Failure to withdraw officially will result in an F grade (Grade Point 00).
