University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Faculty of Kinesiology 3. Faculty Regulations 3.2 Registration
3.2 Registration
Accuracy of Registration

All students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registration and for arranging their course selections to satisfy graduation requirements.

Course Load

The equivalent of 15 units (five half courses) per academic term represents a normal course load in all Faculty of Kinesiology programs. It should be stressed that extra courses represent substantial burdens and may negatively impact overall performance. Opportunities for accelerated progress exist through courses offered in Spring and Summer Intersession.

Interruption of Program Leading to a Degree

Students who interrupt their degree program in the Faculty of Kinesiology are advised that after an absence of one calendar year (twelve consecutive months) from academic study at the university level, they may be required to comply with any regulations that may have come into effect in regard to their program requirements. Students who do not attend the University of Calgary for two or more years (twenty-four consecutive months or greater) will be required to apply for re-admission. Students required to withdraw for academic reasons will not be readmitted.

Transfer Credit from Other Institutions

No more than 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) taken at other institutions (or University of Calgary courses which have been applied to a previous University of Calgary degree) and acceptable for transfer of credit may be counted towards the degree. Students must have obtained a grade of at least "D" or its equivalent in courses proposed for transfer of credit. Grades obtained in transfer courses may be used in the computation of grade point averages for graduation purposes at the discretion of the Faculty.

A maximum of 27 units (4.5 full-course equivalents) of Kinesiology Core courses (listed under 4. Program Details) may be transferred from other institutions. The Faculty reserves the right to determine any student's sequence of courses; credit for a course will not be awarded unless the prerequisite for that course (as listed in the Calendar) has been completed with a minimum grade of "C-".

Students may be authorized to take some of their course work at another university if their registration as a visiting student is acceptable to that university. Requests for such authorization should be made through the Advising Office.

It is the responsibility of the student to provide full details of the courses proposed for transfer at the time of application. It is also the responsibility of the student to ensure that upon completion of the courses an official transcript is forwarded to the Admissions Office of this University in order that the appropriate credit may be officially recorded. Students must obtain a grade of "D" or better for transfer of credit.

Students must request a Letter of Permission, via their Student Centre, prior to registering in courses outside the University of Calgary to ensure courses will transfer.

Duration of Degree

All courses counting towards the degree must be completed within 10 consecutive calendar years from the time of first registration in the Faculty.

Courses Bearing a Prerequisite

A student must obtain a grade of "C-" or better in a prerequisite course to be eligible for the subsequent course.

Withdrawal from Courses

A student may withdraw from any course via the student registration system. The request must be submitted by the deadline as specified in the Academic Schedule. Before withdrawing from any course, a student is strongly recommended to seek advice from the instructor and the Advising Office.

Students wishing to withdraw completely from the University should refer to the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar.

Students will not be permitted to withdraw more than once from a particular course. Students will be required to withdraw from the Faculty if they have accumulated a total of more than 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalent) of withdrawals while in attendance at the University of Calgary.

Repetition of Courses

Students may repeat a course previously failed or one in which a higher grade is sought. However, a student will usually be permitted to repeat a particular course only once. Failure to achieve a minimum grade of "C-" in a required prerequisite course after two attempts will result in immediate required withdrawal from the Faculty, subject to the right of written appeal to the Kinesiology Appeals Committee.

Non-Kinesiology Student Registration

Students not admitted to the Faculty of Kinesiology, who have completed 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalent) of Kinesiology courses (transfer or offered by the Faculty of Kinesiology), will be restricted from registration in additional Kinesiology courses.
