Arts and Science Admission and Fees Regulation 14     Admission on Probation (Non-Degree Program)


Regulation 14     Admission on Probation (Non-Degree Program)
14    Admission on Probation (Non-Degree Program)
Applicants wishing to transfer to the Faculty of Arts and Science from another Faculty or School at Queen's University who do not satisfy the minimum admission requirements of the Faculty of Arts and Science (as specified in AdmissionRegulation7b) are not eligible to be considered for admission for a minimum of one year, after which time they must apply through Undergraduate Admission to be considered for part-time admission on probation. Students who have failed 6.0 or more transferable credits are not eligible to be considered for admission to the Faculty of Arts and Science for a minimum of three years.
 
Such students should note the maximum course load for part-time students (see Academic Regulation 2c).
 
a    Students admitted part-time on probation must complete their first 3.0 credits with a minimum overall average of 60 per cent with no failures to be eligible to continue to register for courses.
 
i    Students who meet these conditions will be notified by Undergraduate Admission and have the ruling 'Admitted to a Degree Program Part-Time' added to their record.
 
ii    Students who do not meet the conditions of their admission on probation will be notified by Undergraduate Admission and have the ruling 'Not Eligible to Proceed' added to their record. Students may not appeal this ruling because it is the direct result of a particular level of academic performance.
 
Students who have failed a Fall Term course, will be dropped from Winter Term courses immediately and will have the choice of continuing in any Fall-Winter Session courses. Similarly, if a Spring Term course is failed, students will be removed from Summer Term courses immediately and will have the choice of continuing in any Spring-Summer Session courses.
 
iii    Students assigned incomplete grades or deferred exams will not be permitted to register for further courses until the grades are changed to passing grades.
 
b    Students admitted part-time on probation must comply with all the regulations of the Faculty of Arts and Science and may access the Faculty’s procedure for appeal of academic decisions with respect to courses completed as a probationary student.
 
c    Students admitted part-time on probation may become eligible for full-time studies only after first successfully meeting the conditions of their admission on probation and then fulfilling the Faculty’s normal requirements for transferring from part-time to full-time studies on a degree program (see Academic Regulation 2e). That is, such students must:
  • First meet the following conditions to be admitted to a degree program part time:
       Complete a minimum of 3.0 Queen’s credits, excluding repeated courses;
    ii    Achieve a minimum overall average of 60 per cent on all courses passed; and
    iii    Have no failures in any year.
  • Secondly, students who have been admitted part-time to a degree program will become eligible for full-time studies upon meeting one of the following sets of conditions:
       Complete a minimum of 4.0 Queen’s credits, excluding repeated courses;
    ii    Achieve a minimum overall average of 65 per cent on all courses passed (including those completed while not on a degree program); and
    iii    Have no failures in the most recent year.
    OR
       Complete a minimum of 3.0 Queen’s credits, excluding repeated courses;
    ii    Achieve a minimum overall average of 75 per cent on all courses passed (including those completed while not on a degree program); and
    iii    Have no failures in any year.
Upon the successful completion of each phase, students will be notified by Undergraduate Admission and have the appropriate ruling added to their student record (e.g., 'Admitted to a Degree Program Part-Time' and 'Eligible to Register Full-Time' respectively)(see Admission Regulation15d).
