University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Co-operative Education/Internship 2. Academic Regulations 2.8 Withdrawal Policies
2.8 Withdrawal Policies

The Co-operative Education/Internship program strongly values the commitment that is made between students and Co-op/Internship Employers. Our withdrawal policies have been set to encourage students to be accountable for their commitments.

Students cannot withdraw from a Co-operative Education/Internship course (or leave a work term/placement) without permission from both their Co-operative Education/Internship Program Office and the faculty.

Permission is only granted in cases of serious illness, domestic affliction or for academic issues. Students who receive permission to withdraw will receive credit for completed course/work terms. They will be withdrawn from the current registered course/work term. They will also be dropped from registered course/work terms not yet started and no fees will be charged for these course/work terms.

Withdrawal with Permission

(a) Student contacts their appropriate co-operative or internship office;

(b) A University representative meets with the student and employer to investigate and try to resolve issues when feasible or appropriate and seek a resolution;

(c) When the issue meets the criteria above and cannot be resolved, faculty approval can be given for the student to withdraw without penalty.

Withdrawal without Permission

Students who leave a work term (withdraw from a Co-operative Education or Internship course) without permission will be assigned a grade of "F" on the course and will be dropped from subsequent courses. No fees will be charged for the subsequent courses.

In addition students will be required to withdraw from the Co-operative Education/Internship program and will not receive Co-operative Education/Internship designation, notwithstanding the fact that they had completed the minimum work term requirements for the program. A permanent notation will be placed on the transcript of record that the student was required to withdraw from the Co-operative Education/Internship program.
