VIII Deficiency

 

(a) An honours student who has not met the requirement of a B average in his/her major subject may be permitted, with the approval of the department or departments concerned, to proceed on probation into the succeeding year of his/her program or the next two academic terms of the program in the case of programs that do not follow the academic year format. Should he/she fail to obtain the required average a second time, he/she must transfer to another program. In the event that a student has completed the third or fourth year of an honours program, he/she may apply for a Bachelor's degree if the standing is sufficiently high.
(b) A student having a deficiency of no more than one full course (or its equivalent) of his/her year's work after special examinations, will be permitted to register for the succeeding year of his/her program or the next two academic terms of the program in the case of programs that do not follow the academic format provided that an equivalent amount of the succeeding year's work is deferred.
(c) All faculties limit the number of course failures within a year or a total program, and specify the circumstances in which a student may be readmitted to the faculty. For details concerning Business Administration, see page 45; Education, page 60; Engineering, page 95; Forestry and the Forest Environment, page 116; Professional Schools, page 127; Science and Environmental Studies page 177; and Social Sciences and Humanities page 202.
(d) A student is required to attend the courses of instruction and the examinations in all subjects prescribed. A student whose attendance at lectures and laboratories is deemed to be unsatisfactory by the Senate may have his registration in that course cancelled at any time.
(e) The Senate may, at any time, ask any student whose work is unsatisfactory to withdraw from the University.
