This Graduate Calendar is intended to assist readers to understand the academic and administrative structure and policies and procedures of the University and to describe the academic programs offered. By the act of registration, each student becomes bound by the policies and regulations of York University, including the Faculty in which the student is registered. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the general information, rules and regulations contained in the Graduate Calendar, and with the specific information, rules and regulations of the Faculty or Faculties in which they are registered or enrolled or seek registration or enrolment, as well as the specific requirements of each degree, diploma or certificate sought. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses chosen are appropriate to the program requirements.

York reserves the right to make changes in the information contained in the Graduate Calendar without prior notice. Not every course listed in the Graduate Calendar will necessarily be offered in any academic year. York reserves the right to limit the number of students who enrol in any program or course. While reasonable efforts will be made to offer courses as required within programs, admission to a program does not guarantee admission to any given course.

If there is an inconsistency between the general academic regulations and policies published in the Graduate Calendar and such regulations and policies as established by resolution of a Faculty or of the University Senate, the version of such material as it is established by a Faculty or the University Senate will prevail.

York University disclaims all responsibility and liability for loss or damage suffered or incurred by any student or other party as a result of delays in or termination of its services, courses, or classes by reason of force majeure, fire, flood, riots, war, strikes, lock-outs, damage to University property, financial exigency or other events beyond the reasonable control of the University.

York University disclaims any and all liability for damages arising as a result of errors, interruptions or disruptions to operations or connected with its operations or its campuses, arising out of computer failure or non-compliance of its computing systems.
