Scope of application, citation and relationship with faculty-specific academic regulations
The University's Academic Regulations are divided into three categories:
Category A "Joint Regulations" sets out the Academic Regulations applicable to all levels of studies at the University of Ottawa (unless otherwise specified in the particular regulation).
Category B "Undergraduate" sets out the Academic Regulations applicable only to the undergraduate level.
Category C "Graduate Studies" sets out the Academic Regulations applicable only to graduate studies.
The reference to a particular regulation must be composed of the letter of the regulation preceded by the number of the part from which it comes. For example, a reference to Regulation 2 "Courses" in Category A below would be "Academic Regulation A-2".
