Students who have been required to withdraw for academic reasons from any faculty at the University of Calgary or another post-secondary institution will not be permitted to register at the University until at least twelve months have elapsed since the student was required to withdraw. To qualify for admission, students are required to submit an application for admission and meet competitive admission criteria as outlined in A.5 (Undergraduate Admission Requirements), with the following exemptions:
- Students required to withdraw for academic reasons other than a low grade point average, may be eligible for consideration of admission by another faculty provided they maintained a 2.00 or higher grade point average since their last review.
- Students required to obtain a grade point average (GPA) above 2.00 for continuation in a program may be eligible for consideration of admission by another faculty provided they maintained at least a 2.00 grade point average since their last review.
- Under exceptional circumstances, a University of Calgary student required to withdraw for academic reasons can be granted special permission by the appropriate Associate Dean of the faculty for immediate admission to the Fall Term. An Associate Dean can place restrictions on course registration and require a specific level of performance. Registration as an Open Studies student is not permitted.
Students seeking admission or re-admission after having been required to withdraw for academic reasons may submit a letter which: offers an explanation for their previously poor record; outlines their academic plans; and explains why they are now likely to be successful. This letter is mandatory for applicants to the Haskayne School of Business, the Faculty of Nursing and the Werklund School of Education. Admission is not automatic and will be considered on an individual basis.
Students who are granted admission or re-admission after having been required to withdraw will be admitted or re-admitted on probation.
Students who have twice been required to withdraw from one or more faculties at this or any other institution will not normally be considered for admission at any time.
Applicants seeking admission who have been involved in academic/non-academic misconduct at the University of Calgary or another institution which resulted in a suspension will only be considered for admission once the suspension period or one year has elapsed, whichever comes first. In all cases of academic/non-academic misconduct, admission or re-admission to the University of Calgary is at the discretion of the faculty to which the applicant is seeking entrance. A student expelled from a faculty will not be considered for re-admission to the same faculty.
