Eligible to Continue

A student who does satisfy the program requirements for continuation of study will be eligible to continue.

Probationary

A student who does not satisfy the program requirements for continuation of study will be allowed to continue in their program if granted probationary status.

Required to Withdraw

A student who does not satisfy the program requirements for continuation of study will be required to withdraw from the University for a minimum of two semesters (see Continuation of Study in this section).

Students who do not satisfy the program requirements may appeal to the Academic Review Sub-Committee for probationary status to be granted based on medical, psychological or compassionate grounds.

Readmission to a program at the University of Guelph is not automatic. Students who are required to withdraw must apply for readmission to the University after completing the minimum two semesters of rustication. Students should consult Chapter IV--Admission Information regarding appropriate admission requirements and deadline dates.

A student who has been required to withdraw and who has made an appeal for probationary status to the Academic Review Sub-Committee will not be allowed to attend classes until such time that the appeal is granted.

A term academic standing is assigned to each completed semester according to the requirements of the Continuation of Study policy. A student whose term academic standing is Required to Withdraw according to the requirements of the Continuation of Study policy may have their term academic standing changed to "probation" as a result of a request for Academic Consideration.
