Standing Required for Continuance


Students are expected to maintain acceptable standards of scholarship. Specifically, they must maintain a minimum 2.00 CGPA. A student who does not do so will be considered to be performing unsatisfactorily in his/her studies. Regulations are applied to obtain reasonable equitability between transfer and nontransfer students. The following procedures apply for evaluating student performance in accordance with the policy governing continuance, withdrawal and readmission.

Repeated Withdrawals

Students who withdraw from all courses in three consecutive semesters of registration will be ineligible to reregister.

Ineligible to Reregister

A student with a CGPA average of less than 1.0 in two consecutive semesters of registration, or with only N or F grades in two consecutive semesters, will be ineligible to reregister.

Academic Probation

A student who has received assigned grades for at least nine Simon Fraser University credit hours will be placed on academic probation if the CGPA average earned is lower than 2.00.

During the probation period, the student must complete a minimum of nine Simon Fraser University credit hours of assigned grades before reassessment will occur. A student on academic probation may not repeat a course for which a grade of C or higher has been assigned. A student on academic probation may not register in a course overload.

If at the end of the probation period,

Required to Withdraw

After receiving Simon Fraser University assigned grades for at least 18 credit hours (nine if admitted on academic probation), a student may be required to withdraw (RTW) after being placed on academic probation.

Extended Withdrawal

A student must have received Simon Fraser University assigned grades for at least 27 credit hours (or 27 credit hours and transfer credits combined). A student may be placed on extended withdrawal (EW) after first having been required to withdraw (RTW) and then readmitted.

Readmission of Involuntarily Withdrawn Students

Former students who have been involuntarily withdrawn from the University (required to withdraw, ineligible to reregister, or placed on extended withdrawal) will be considered for readmission based on the amount (credit hours of credit) and quality of performance achieved (GPA) in academic course work completed after the student last registered at Simon Fraser University.

Required to Withdraw or Ineligible to Reregister Students

Former students who are required to withdraw (RTW) or ineligible to reregister (ING) (i.e. CGPA of less than 1.0 in two consecutive semesters) will be eligible for readmission if they complete further transferable academic work according to the following schedule (any of the following five options):

*The acceptance GPA refers to the minimum GPA in effect for the semester which must be met by BC College transfer students, according to enrolment limitation measures. Due to enrolment limits, this acceptance GPA may vary.

Extended Withdrawal Students

Former students who are on extended withdrawal (EW) will be eligible for readmission if they complete further transferable academic work according to the following schedule (any of the following five options):

*The acceptance GPA refers to the minimum GPA in effect for the semester which must be met by BC College transfer students, according to enrolment limitation measures. Due to enrolment limits, this acceptance GPA may vary.

Ineligible to Reregister Students

Former students who are ineligible to reregister (INF only N or F grades in two consecutive semesters) or withdraw voluntarily (INW in three consecutive semesters) whose Simon Fraser University CGPAs are below 2.00, will be eligible for readmission on the same basis as required to withdraw (RTW) and ineligible to reregister (ING) former students (see above). If their CGPAs are 2.00 or higher, they will be eligible for readmission if they complete at least 3 credit hours of further transferable work at a minimum 2.00 GPA.

Deadlines

Deadlines for consideration will be the same as for other students seeking readmission. Decisions will be mailed or applicants will be phoned, depending on the date of the decision.

Duplicate Courses

Duplicate courses (repeated attempts at courses which have been passed prior to leaving Simon Fraser University, with a grade of C or higher) will not count in the credit hour or GPA calculations in readmission cases.

Final Grades Evaluated

Assessment will be based only on final grades (i.e. courses in progress will not be evaluated).

Transfer Credit

Credit for transferable courses will be granted on readmission, subject to a C minimum grade in each course, and subject to normal transfer credit limits. Letters of permission will not be issued to students who are not in good academic standing.

Standing on Readmission

If readmitted, students will be placed on academic probation and will be subject to the conditions described above. If both the CGPA and the GPA on assigned grades are below 2.00 at the end of the probation period, the student will be placed on extended withdrawal (EW) or required to withdraw (RTW), as appropriate.

Academic Alert

Students whose semester GPAs fall below 2.00, but who are not on any of the above academic standings, will receive an `academic alert' notification and will be advised to seek counselling at the Academic Resource Office.
