Graduate Studies Admission & Registration Graduate Student


Graduate Student

At Queen's University, a graduate student is a student who is registered in the School of Graduate Studies in a graduate degree program.1

In the letter of acceptance a new graduate student may be designated as preparatory or probationary.

a. Preparatory: Preparatory status implies that, while having the academic qualifications for graduate study, the applicant's academic background in the chosen field of study is inadequate and consequently, prerequisite course work will be required in addition to that prescribed for the degree. Prerequisite courses cannot be credited to the main program. Preparatory graduate students must expect to take longer to complete the degree program.

b. Probationary: Probationary status implies that, because the academic background and ability could not be appraised from the application for admission, the acceptance is conditional on the applicant demonstrating adequate qualifications to the Department/Program within the initial two terms. If this proviso is not fulfilled, the student will be required to withdraw. NOTE: The probationary designation will only be removed if this is recommended by the Department/Program to the School of Graduate Studies.

1 "degree program" encompasses all degree programs, joint degree programs, collaborative degrees, co-tutelle degree arrangements, graduate level certificate and diploma programs, and professional graduate level programs under the administration of the School of Graduate Studies.
