Academic performance is monitored after each term. All course attempts in the term will be reviewed.

Students who have withdrawn from more than 15 units will be discontinued from Open Studies unless they can demonstrate sufficient cause for the withdrawals.

Discontinued students from Open Studies at the University of Calgary may not register in Open Studies for a period of twelve months from the end of the term they last attended. Re-applicants will be required to meet the Open Studies admission standards prior to being reconsidered.

Open Studies students are encouraged to speak with the Open Studies Academic Advisor available in the Student Success Centre ( Open Studies students are not eligible for the Academic Turn Around program.
