3.4 Student Standing
Performance Review, Probationary Status and Dismissal

The academic standing of students registered in the Faculty will be reviewed after each Winter Term provided that they have completed at least 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents at the University of Calgary since their previous review. (Students who have not completed 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents since the previous review will retain their existing status until the next subsequent review.) All University of Calgary credit courses, which have been completed since the previous review, are used for the purpose of academic review. Students placed on academic probation or required to withdraw as a result of the academic performance review will be so advised in writing.

Notwithstanding the specific regulations pertaining to Student Standing, students' academic standing may be reviewed at any time and those with generally poor academic records may be placed or continued on academic probation or required to withdraw at the discretion of the Associate Dean, Academic and Student Affairs or other delegate of the Dean.

Failure to achieve a minimum grade of "C-" in a required prerequisite course after two attempts will also result in immediate required withdrawal from the Faculty.

Probation, Dismissal, Readmission
  1. Probationary status is only available in Kinesiology, subsequent to a successful appeal of a student's "required to withdraw" status.
  2. Probationary status carries the stipulation that a student will:
    1. Retain a GPA of at least 2.00 over all courses taken since the previous review.
    2. Be reinstated in satisfactory standing if they have achieved a GPA of at least 2.00 over all courses taken since their previous review.
    3. Will be required to withdraw from the Faculty if they have achieved a GPA of less than 2.00 over all courses taken since their previous review.
  3. Students required to withdraw from the Faculty of Kinesiology for unsatisfactory academic performance must wait a minimum of 12 months from the date of withdrawal to re-apply, at which time they will be considered for admission at the next admission cycle together with new transfer applicants. Re-applicants will be required to meet the transfer admission standards prior to being readmitted. Students who are readmitted after having been required to withdraw from the Faculty of Kinesiology will be placed on probation for the next term in which they register.
  4. Students required to withdraw from an Honours program under conditions of unsatisfactory academic performance will be deemed ineligible for readmission to an Honours program. However, the student may be admitted to a BKin or BSc program.
