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

If you were required to withdraw from your faculty or 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.

For more information on enrolling in courses to improve your admission or academic file, see the Special students page.

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. Check admission averages.
