37.4 Repeating of Courses

1.     Students may not repeat any university course passed or courses for which they have received transfer credit except for reasons deemed sufficient, and verified in writing, by the Dean of the Faculty in which they are enrolled.

2.     Only one re-registration for credit or audit will be permitted in any failed university course, except for reasons deemed sufficient by the Dean (or delegate) of the Faculty in which a student is enrolled.

3.     Only one re-registration for credit or audit will be permitted in any university course in which a student has received a final grade of W, except for reasons deemed sufficient by the Dean (or delegate) of the Faculty in which a student is enrolled.

4.     In cases where a student contravenes regulations 1., 2. or 3. above, the Dean (or delegate) may withhold credit or indicate the course as extra to the degree, on the course registration that contravenes the regulation.

5.     Students may repeat a first-term course in the second term, if it is offered, as long as the student complies with regulations 1., 2. and 3. above.

6.     An undergraduate student who, because of unsatisfactory academic performance is either required to withdraw, and/or required to repeat a year, and/or put on probation, will retain credit for courses in which grades of D or higher have been attained during the period for which the student's performance was evaluated as unsatisfactory.  Notwithstanding this credit, Faculties may require substitution of other courses in programs in which full course loads are required. (EXEC 17 JUN 2002)

7.     The Faculties of Law, Medicine, and Dentistry were granted exemption from the revision to Section 37.5.6 above, retroactive to April 11, 1983.

8.     The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences was granted exemption from item 6 above.  (EXEC 13 NOV 1990)

9.     The Faculty of Engineering was granted exemption from item 6 above, effective 2002-2003. (CAAST 16 MAY 2002)                                                            

NOTES:

1.     The new policy takes effect September 1, 1988.

2.     Withdrawals recorded on a student's record prior to September 1, 1988 would not be included in that re-registration count.

3.     Students are responsible for monitoring the number of times they have repeated a course.

4.     Withdrawals (W's) in a course will be considered together with failures (WF's or F's) when a Faculty is restricting the number of multiple registrations in a course.

Questions about this policy should be directed to the Registrar.
