(Note regarding interpretation of GPA specifications: Schulich School of Engineering regulations are based on GPA values that have been rounded to two decimal places, with ties broken to students' advantage. For example, a GPA of exactly 1.995 will be treated as 2.00 for interpretation of the following regulations, while a GPA of exactly 1.994 will be treated as 1.99.)
For normal advancement towards the degree, students must register in courses directly applicable to the degree program in which they are registered and must maintain satisfactory performance in their programs. Students are referred to the general University regulations regarding Unsatisfactory Standing under F. Academic Standing in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar. Students are advised to read and consider all regulations and, in cases of doubt as to precise meaning of any statement or regulation, to consult the Engineering Student Centre.
The Schulich School of Engineering Undergraduate Studies Committee meets at the end of the Winter Term to review the academic performance of Engineering students. Categories of Student Standing as a result of the review include “Dean’s List”, “Good Standing”, “On Probation”, and “Required to Withdraw”, which will be described in what follows. All students are subject to review, except:
- students who have been given permission to take a reduced course load (see Part-Time Studies in section 3.3) and who have completed fewer than 18 units (6.0 half-course equivalents) since their last review;
- students who have spent the majority of the time since their previous review in the Engineering Internship Program.
Normally, all courses taken by the student since the previous review (or since admission in the case of the first review) will be included in the evaluation of academic performance; for students on academic probation at the time of review, only those courses taken during the review period that are required for the student's engineering program will be included in the count of courses and in the evaluation of academic performance.
Notwithstanding these regulations, a student's performance may be reviewed at any time by the School and a student may be permitted to continue in program under specific conditions or required to withdraw.
Specific regulations for the Schulich School of Engineering are listed below.
