2 Programs of Study

a.†††††† Students must obtain written approval from Student Services, FEAS, to add or drop first year courses.†††
b.††††† A student who is registered in the Regular First Year Program for Winter Term courses may register to rewrite the final examination in any failed course at the next examination period only if the studentís Engineering Sessional GPA (ESGPA) is at least 0.7.†
c.†††††† An upper year student may request an exemption in a course by application to the Operations Committee or delegate on the basis of knowledge acquired through practical experience.† Approval for a request for a course exemption must be recommended by the course instructor and by the Department, on the basis of a satisfactory assessment of the studentís proficiency in the exempted course material.† A replacement course of similar level, total weight, and CEAB units must be proposed in the exemption application.† If the exemption is granted the student must take and pass the specified replacement course.†
d.††††† An upper year student may request an exemption in a course by application to the Operations Committee or delegate on the basis of knowledge acquired through studies prior to first admission to the FEAS.† Approval for a request for a course exemption must be recommended by the course instructor and by the Department, on the basis of a satisfactory assessment of the studentís proficiency in the course material.† A replacement course of similar level, total weight, and CEAB units must be proposed in the exemption application.† If the exemption is granted the student must take and pass the specified replacement course.†
e.†††††† An upper year student may request permission for substitution of a course in his/her program by a similar course, either at Queenís or elsewhere, by application to the Operations Committee prior to enrolling in the substitute course.† Approval for a request for a course substitution must be recommended by the instructor of the prescribed course and the Department.† For courses other than Complementary Studies, the request will normally only be considered if the institution offering the course has an accredited engineering program and if the student has an Engineering Cumulative Grade Point Average (ECGPA) of at least 1.6.† If a request to take a substitute course at another institution is approved, the FEAS will issue a Letter of Permission to allow the student to enroll in the course.†
f.†††††† A student seeking a degree in Engineering and Applied Science may not receive more than two years of credits for work done in another Faculty or university, and such credits may not encompass more than one half of the courses of the third and fourth years of the program.† Additionally, at least one half of the fourth year of the program must be taken at Queenís.†
g.†††††† A student who has not passed all of the courses of the first year which are specified as prerequisite to any course in the chosen upper year program must, during the next session, follow a special Fall and Winter term program arranged by the Chair of Undergraduate Studies of the chosen department.† During this session, the student must pass all prerequisite courses during the session or he or she will be required to withdraw.†
