Requirements for re-admission following mandatory withdrawal from a faculty or refused admission

If you were required to withdraw from your faculty or are a university or college transfer student who has been refused admission and wish to re-apply, you must first meet the academic upgrading conditions required by the faculty and fulfill current admission requirements. For more information about re-admission following mandatory withdrawal, see the regulation 11.3 on academic standing, probation and mandatory withdrawal for undergraduate programs.

General rules for re-admission

  • You must have attempted a minimum of 24 units (successfully or not).
  • You must have the upgrading minimal average required by the faculty.
  • Upgrading courses cannot be at a lower level than courses you’ve already passed.
  • All courses completed during the upgrading period are included in the calculation of your upgrading average. If you have repeated a course, only the second grade obtained is used in the calculation of average. See academic regulation on registration (regulation 5.6).
  • Admission is not guaranteed.
  • Students who have met the requirements must submit a new application for admission.
  • Minimum required averages can change without notice.
