Arts and Science Admission and Fees Regulation 13     Admission of Special Students Not on a Degree Program


Regulation 13     Admission of Special Students Not on a Degree Program
13    Admission of Special Students Not on a Degree Program
A student must first be admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science before being able to register in courses. Applicants should refer to the Sessional Dates and ensure that their application and supporting documentation are received by the appropriate deadline for the term in which they wish to begin studies. They must also ensure that they register in the appropriate registration period and should read the final paragraph describing the registration process. Applicants not pursuing an Arts and Science degree program may be considered for admission under the most appropriate of the following non-degree categories.
 
a    POST-DEGREE STUDENTS   
University graduates may be admitted to complete undergraduate courses for upgrading or general interest at Queen's University. An official university transcript showing that they are in good academic standing as a transfer student to the Faculty of Arts and Science, along with a list of courses the applicant wishes to take, must be submitted to support the application. Applicants must hold the appropriate prerequisites for the courses they request. Enrolment restrictions may apply. Students who have completed a degree from Queen’s are not required to apply under this category for courses to be taken at Queen's University, and should contact the Faculty of Arts and Science Office to register for courses.
 
b    VISITING STUDENTS FROM OTHER UNIVERSITIES   
Students who wish to take courses at Queen’s University for credit at their home university are required to submit an application, an official transcript showing that they are in good academic standing and a list of the courses that they wish to take and the session in which they are requesting registration. Applicants must hold the appropriate prerequisites for the courses they request. Enrolment restrictions may apply. A new application is required for each session in which the student wishes to take courses. The ruling 'Admitted for one term/session; must apply for readmission' will be added to the student's record at Queen's.
 
c    VISITING STUDENTS FROM OTHER FACULTIES AND SCHOOLS AT QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY   
Students in good academic standing as defined in Admission Regulation 8, who are registered in another Faculty or School at Queen’s University and who wish to take Arts and Science courses for interest or toward an eventual Arts and Science degree must be admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science through Undergraduate Admission. Students already registered in the Faculty of Arts and Science, including the Schools of Computing, Kinesiology and Health Studies, and Music and the Bachelor of Fine Art program, do not need to apply for admission under this category. Students admitted under this category to the Fall-Winter Session shall be registered concurrently for their initial or primary degree program.

These students will be charged the appropriate Arts and Science tuition fee for courses registered under this category and may be admitted for one session only. A ruling to this effect will be added to the student’s record. A new application is required for admission to a subsequent session. Credits completed under this category cannot be counted toward the student’s primary degree program, but may count toward a subsequent Arts and Science degree, should a student later be admitted to the Faculty through the regular admissions process. Students considering this admission category should consult Admission Regulation 8 and the Dual and Second Degrees section of this Calendar for information on the admission criteria and registration for Dual and Second Degree Programs.
 
d    STUDENTS TAKING COURSES FOR PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION (Non-Degree Program)   
Applicants wishing to take courses toward certification by a professional institute or association must submit an application and a statement of admission from the organization concerned indicating the course(s) required. Such students may enrol, over time, in a maximum of 6.0 credits under this admission category.
 
For applicants under the above categories, Undergraduate Admission will seek departmental approval for specific course requests. Enrolment limitations and/or a lack of appropriate prerequisites may result in the denial of an application for admission or requests for specific courses. It is the students’ responsibility to ensure formal registration in the approved courses and, when appropriate, that these courses are transferable to their home institution. Once registered, such students are subject to the regulations of the Faculty of Arts and Science and will submit assignments, write examinations and receive an official record of their results. Should a student later be admitted to an Arts and Science degree program, credit will normally be granted for previous course(s) successfully completed in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
