Policy on Attendance and Participation

The Fundamentals of Learning program permits you to continue your studies during the 2013-2014 academic year without interruption expressly to enable you to improve your academic skills and approaches to university learning. Therefore, your acceptance into the Fundamentals of Learning program comes with the expectation of the program instructors and director that you will attend and participate fully in all lectures, tutorials, and individualized learning sessions and that you will be punctual in your attendance.

Students with excessive absence or lateness will be subject to review by the program director and/or the Associate Dean Students and may face withdrawal from the program and/or credit courses or receive a failing grade in Fundamentals of Learning. As a consequence of failing this program, the waiver of required withdrawal may be rescinded and students may be required to withdraw from their studies for twelve months at the end of the academic session.

In cases where extenuating circumstances arise that impact on students' progress in the program (including illness, accident, major life events), students are expected to notify their respective tutorial leaders and the program director promptly and to complete the required work of the program without delay.

Special note: Withdrawal from Fundamentals of Learning may only be arranged under certain circumstances and through the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies. non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from the program.
