Admission requirements 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.
