Students who have been required to withdraw for academic reasons from any faculty of this University or any other post-secondary institution will not be permitted to register under any student category at the University until at least twelve months have elapsed since the student was required to withdraw. To qualify for admission, such applicants are normally required to meet competitive admission criteria as outlined in the section titled "Admission Requirements." Exceptions to this regulation are as follows:
1. Students required to withdraw for academic reasons other than a low grade point average, may be eligible for consideration of admission by another faculty provided they maintained a 2.00 or higher grade point average since their last review.
2. Students required to obtain a grade point average above 2.00 for continuation in a program may be eligible for consideration of admission by another faculty provided they maintained at least a 2.00 grade point average since their last review.
3. Under exceptional circumstances, a University of Calgary student required to withdraw for academic reasons can be granted special permission by the Associate Dean (Student Affairs) of a faculty for immediate admission to the Fall Term. An Associate Dean can place restrictions on course registration and require a specific level of performance. Registration as an Open Studies non-degree student is not permitted.
These regulations do not apply in the case of academic/non-academic misconduct (see below).
Students seeking admission or readmission after having been required to withdraw for academic reasons may submit a letter which (a) offers an explanation for their previously poor record, (b) outlines their academic plans, and (c) explains why they are now likely to be successful. This letter is mandatory for applicants or re-applicants to the Haskayne School of Business and the Schulich School of Engineering. Admission is not automatic and will be considered on an individual basis.
Students who are readmitted after having been required to withdraw will be readmitted on probation.
Students who have twice been required to withdraw from one or more faculties at this or any other institution will not normally be considered for admission at any time.
Applicants seeking admission who have been involved in academic/non-academic misconduct at this or other institutions which resulted in a suspension will only be considered for admission once the suspension period has elapsed or one year has elapsed, whichever comes first. In all cases of academic/non-academic misconduct, admission or readmission to the University of Calgary is at the discretion of the faculty to which the applicant is seeking entrance. A student expelled from a faculty will not be considered for readmission to the same faculty.
