University of Calgary Calendar 2010-2011 Faculty of Medicine 3. Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies 3.8 Student Standing (BCR)
3.8 Student Standing (BCR)
Academic Standing

A grade point average based on all courses taken to date at the University of Calgary is calculated as described under F. Academic Standing in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar except that lower grades in repeated courses are not included. Please note that "F" grades have a value of zero and are included in the calculation. Students are required to maintain a grade point average of at least 2.50 in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies courses in order to:

(a) Be admitted to the practicum (Community Rehabilitation 589.01, 589.02, 589.06),

(b) Be granted the BCR degree.

Note: A minimum GPA of 3.00 in practicum courses is required for the BCR degree to be granted.

Minimal Pass

If a student receives a "D" or "D+" grading (minimal pass) in a course, he/she will not be allowed to use this course as a prerequisite to a higher level course except with the consent of the Head of the Department offering the course. Students may repeat a course once in order to raise their standing.

Repeating Courses

Students may repeat a course previously attempted (including withdrawals) only once without permission of the Faculty office. Practicum courses offered by Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies, may not be repeated after a failing grade has been received without:

(a) The prior consent of the Director, Rehabilitation and Disability Studies;

(b) Presenting evidence of having made an attempt to overcome previous difficulties encountered;

(c) Waiting a reasonable period of time (one semester to one calendar year) prior to repetition.

Excessive Number of Withdrawals

Students will not be permitted to withdraw more than once from a particular course. Students will be required to withdraw if they have accumulated a total of more than five full-course equivalent withdrawals while in attendance at the University of Calgary.

Unsatisfactory Standing

Students are referred to the section on F. Academic Standing in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar. Standing is unsatisfactory when:

(a) The record indicates that a student has "F" grades in two full courses in any one year, or

(b) The student has an accumulated total of "F" grades in the equivalent of three full courses, or

(c) The grade point average falls below 2.50 calculated as described in F. Academic Standing.

When a record is unsatisfactory for any one of the three reasons listed, the student will be required to withdraw.
