Academic Calendar 2022-2023

Academic Regulation 7: Course Registration

Students will be registered by the School of Nursing in all required courses. If a student wishes to change registration in a required course, the student must have the approval of the Undergraduate Academic Advisor. Students will register themselves in elective courses during the pre-registration period and may change elective course registration without approval of the Undergraduate Academic Advisor (refer to Sessional Dates). Students should be aware of requirements for elective courses before adding or dropping an elective course.

If a student wishes to add or drop a required course on or before the last date published by the Office of the University Registrar, the student must have the approval and signature of the Undergraduate Academic Advisor.

A course cannot be dropped after the published date to drop ‘without faculty/school permission.’ A student may seek a Waiver of this Regulation from the School of Nursing Undergraduate Academic Progress and Graduation Committee (UAPGC) (see Academic Regulation 21).  Waivers to ‘late drop’ a course without faculty/school permission will only be granted if the student demonstrates that exceptional circumstances prevented them from dropping the course on or before the published drop deadline. If a waiver is granted this will be noted on the student’s transcript by the designation “DR” (see Academic Regulation 8.2).

A student can only drop 2 theory courses and 1 clinical course while registered in the School of Nursing.
