Good Standing & Academic Warning

11.2 Master's Program A grade of B- or better must normally be obtained in each course credited towards the master's degree. A candidate may, with the support of the departmental graduate supervisor/associate chair (graduate affairs) and the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, be allowed a grade of C+ in 1.0 credit. The Department of Systems & Computer Engineering does not permit the C+ option and applies a B- minimum rule.

Full-Time Continuation Full-time master's students who fail to achieve a weighted GPA of 7.0 after two terms of study, or to maintain it subsequently, will be required to withdraw from the program. In the event of special or extenuating circumstances, the student may apply through the program graduate supervisor/associate chair (graduate affairs) to the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs for permission to continue in the program.

Part-Time Continuation Part-time master's students who fail to achieve or maintain a weighted GPA of 7.0 after completing 2.0 credits, or to maintain it subsequently, will be required to withdraw from the program. In the event of special or extenuating circumstances, the student may apply through the program graduate supervisor/associate chair (graduate affairs) to the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs for permission to continue in the program.

11.3 Doctoral Program Doctoral students must obtain a grade of B- or better in each course credited towards the degree.

11.4 Departmental Evaluation In addition to the above requirements, departments will undertake a periodic evaluation of a student's progress in his or her overall program to determine whether that progress is satisfactory. In the event that progress is deemed unsatisfactory, the program graduate supervisor may recommend to the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs that the student be required to withdraw.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS IN ACADEMIC WARNING

You have a whole term to improve your marks. After the fact, you will be withdrawn from the program. Take this opportunity to focus on your courses, discuss your options with your Advisor, and follow their guidance. You WILL NOT be given extra opportunities if you continue having marks below the minimum limit.
