Important Information for Continuing Students
While Departmental counsellors and the Registrars of the Colleges are always
available to give advice and guidance, it must be clearly understood that THE
ULTIMATE RESPONSIBILITY RESTS WITH THE STUDENT for completeness and correctness
of course selection, for compliance with prerequisite, co-requisite
requirements, etc., for completion of Program details, for proper observance of
the Distribution Requirement and for observance of regulations, deadlines, etc.
Students are responsible for seeking guidance from a responsible officer if they
are in any doubt; misunderstanding, or advice received from another student will
not be accepted as cause for dispensation from any regulation, deadline, program
or degree requirement.
Degrees Offered on the St. George Campus
Effective for students registering in the Faculty for the first time in
the academic session 2001-2002, the St. George Campus of the Faculty of
Arts and Science has discontinued the 15-course (three-year) B.A. and
B.Sc. degrees; ONLY 20-course (four-year) Honours B.A., B.Sc. and B.Com
degrees will be available. Students registered in the Faculty BEFORE
2001-2002 may still choose a 15-course (three-year) degree.
Changes in Programs of Study, or Subject POSts
The subject POSts, or programs of study, that our calendar lists and
describes are available for the years to which the calendar applies. They
may not necessarily be available in later years. If the University or the
Faculty must change the content of programs of study or withdraw them, all
reasonably possible advance notice and alternative instruction will be
given. The University, however, will not be liable for any loss, damages,
or other expenses that such changes might cause.
Changes in Courses
For each subject POSt offered by the University through the Faculty, the
courses necessary to complete the minimum requirements of the program will
be made available annually. We must, however, reserve the right otherwise
to change the content of courses, instructors and instructional
assignments, enrolment limitations, pre-requisites and co-requisites,
grading policies, and timetables without prior notice.
Regulations and Policies
The University has several policies that are approved by the Governing
Council and which apply to all students. Each student must become familiar
with the policies. The University will assume that he or she has done so.
The rules and regulations of the Faculty are displayed here. Applicable
University policies are either fully displayed here or listed here. In
applying to the Faculty, the student assumes certain responsibilities to
the University and the Faculty and, if admitted and registered, shall be
subject to all rules, regulations, and policies cited in the calendar, as
amended from time to time.
The University makes every reasonable effort to plan and control enrolment
to ensure that all of our students are qualified to complete the programs
to which they are admitted, and to strike a practicable balance between
enrolment and available instructional resources. Sometimes such a balance
cannot be struck and the number of qualified students exceeds the
instructional resources that we can reasonably make available while at the
same time maintaining the quality of instruction. In such cases, we must
reserve the right to limit enrolment in the programs, courses, or sections
listed in the calendar, and to withdraw courses or sections for which
enrolment or resources are insufficient. The University will not be liable
for any loss, damages, or other expenses that such limitations or
withdrawals might cause.
Copyright in Course Lectures
If a student wishes to tape-record, photograph, video-record or otherwise
reproduce lecture presentations, course notes or other similar materials
provided by instructors, he or she must obtain the instructors written
consent beforehand. Otherwise all such reproduction is an infringement of
copyright and is absolutely prohibited. In the case of private use by
students with disabilities, the instructors consent will not be
Person I.D. (Student Number)
Each student at the University is assigned a unique identification number.
The number is confidential. The University, through the Policy on Access
to Student Records, strictly controls access to Person I.D. numbers. The
University assumes and expects that students will protect the
confidentiality of their Person I.D.s.
Fees and Other Charges
The University reserves the right to alter the fees and other charges
described in the calendar.
