Academic Standing and Advancement Policy
To be in good standing and to register unconditionally, students must meet the requirements of the College Academic Standing and Advancement Policy, as well as the Program requirements.
To be in good standing and to register unconditionally:
- Students must have passed more than 50% of their courses for the year (not including summer school).
- Students admitted in January must pass more than 50% of their courses in that semester.
- Students must also meet the standards of their particular program. If that policy is more stringent than the College policy, the program policy (DEC or AEC) takes precedence.
Students who do not fulfill the above conditions may register only with the permission of the College Academic Standing Appeals Committee.
Students denied permission to register under this section have a right to appeal to the College Academic Standing Appeals Committee.
- Students who fail the same Animation Discipline (574) course twice will be expelled from the program.
- Students who fail 4 or more courses in a semester will be expelled from the program.
- Students must pass all Animation Discipline (574) courses in the first term in order to advance to second term.
- Students must pass all first and second year Specific Education (concentration) courses and at least eight (8) General Education courses before proceeding to the fifth term of the program.
Students will have their status reviewed at the end of each semester. Students who fail to meet the criteria set by this Standing and Advancement Policy will be expelled from the Program and the College. Expelled students retain the right to appeal the expulsion decision to the college Academic Standing Appeals Committee.
Students who are re-admitted to the Program following an appeal are required to remain in good standing for two consecutive semesters in order to remain in the Program.
In cases where students are missing some courses, they may be permitted to advance provided the Program Coordinator has approved a Plan of Studies that will allow students to be in phase by the end of the sixth term.
