F.3.1 Academic Standing

In Good Standing: The progression requirements for a Faculty have been achieved. See the faculty section for specific requirements.

Academic Probation: The progression requirements for a faculty have not been achieved following an academic review. Students are placed on academic probation for a period of one year.

Disciplinary Probation: Penalty for plagiarism, cheating or other academic misconduct. Eligible to proceed in an academic program.

Required to Withdraw: If In Good Standing is not achieved during the Academic Probation period or performance requirements as outlined in section F.3.2 (Unsatisfactory Standing) and/or faculty-specific performance requirements are not met, a student will be required to withdraw from the Faculty. May also be used for other academic misconduct penalties where the student is required to withdraw.

Suspension: Not permitted to register in any University of Calgary program or faculty for the period of the suspension. Will be eligible to re-apply for admission after the end of the suspension period. In cases of academic misconduct, the notation will read: Suspended by <Faculty/School> for academic misconduct.

Expulsion from Faculty: Permanent removal from the faculty registered in at the time of the offence. A student does not have a right to be re-admitted to the faculty they were registered in. May be considered for re-admission to another faculty after at least twelve months have passed since the end of the term the expulsion was applied. In cases of academic misconduct, the notation will read: Expelled by <Faculty/School> for academic misconduct.

Expulsion from University: Permanent removal from the University. A student does not have the right to apply for re-admission to the University.

Credential Rescission: If a Faculty determines that credential rescission is warranted, the Dean (or designate) may make the recommendation to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic). The authority to approve a credential rescission rests with the Provost and Vice-President (Academic). If approved, the original conferring of a degree, diploma or certificate is permanently deleted from the student’s academic record and a notation of “<Degree/Diploma/Certificate> Rescinded” and the date of rescission will appear permanently on the student transcript. Students who have a credential rescinded are prohibited from future studies at the University of Calgary.
