These regulations state the requirements to be met and the procedures to be followed for the awarding of degrees in the Faculty of Arts and Science. All requests for exceptions to the regulations should be made to the appropriate reviewing body (see Appeal of Academic Decisions). Enquiries concerning Faculty regulations should be made to the Faculty of Arts and Science Faculty Office.

Faculty Regulations are constantly being reviewed and may change at any time. See http://www.queensu.ca/artsci/academic-calendar for the regulations that are currently in effect.
