In order to add or drop a course after registration, students must consult a Student Advisor or their Program Chairperson and complete a course change form available from the Office of the Registrar. There are no academic penalties for course changes within the first two weeks of classes.
Consult the Grading System & Fees section of the Credit Calendar for information on penalties for dropping a course after the two-week period. Students may not be able to add courses after the first week of classes. Students who fail to report any changes in their registration status will be charged fees according to the fee assessment guideline.
Students who receive permission to register by their Program Chair and the Office of the Registrar one week (five working days) after the first official day of classes in any given semester will be charged a $25 late registration fee on any course(s).
Withdrawal from a Program
A student can withdraw from a program at any time. However, speaking first with a College counsellor, the Program Chair, or Student Advisor is strongly encouraged.
To withdraw, students must complete a Change of Registration form and submit it to the Office of the Registrar. Non-attendance is not accepted as a notice of withdrawal.
Students may drop or delete courses before classes start or within the first 1/8 of their semester or session. Dropped courses do not appear on the official transcript.
Students who withdraw between 1/8 and 1/2 the length of a semester or session will receive a grade of "W" (Withdrawal) in their course(s) which will appear on the official transcript, but is not calculated in the GPA (grade point average).
Students who withdraw after the half-way point of the semester or session will receive a grade of "WF" (Withdraw/Fail) in their course(s) which will be calculated as 0.0 GPA on the official transcript.
Refunds are determined according to the refund policy.
If a student fails a practicum, work placement, or co¬op work term, he/she requires the permission of the Program Chair or Coordinator of their program to retake the course. This may also result in termination from the program.
Change of Name or Address
Please notify the Office of the Registrar in writing immediately of any name changes so that student records remain accurate. Name change documentation must be included.
It is also vital that any change in telephone number or address be updated in the student record. Transcripts, refund cheques, tax receipts and certificates or diplomas are mailed to a student’s permanent address. To change an address, students must complete a Student Change of Information form available from the Office of the Registrar.
