University Policies
Access and Privacy
Queen’s University collects, maintains, uses, and discloses student personal information in accordance with the Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). As secondary custodians of student personal information faculties, schools and departments should be guided by the Office of the University Registrar’s Student and Applicant Record Policy available online at http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/policies/oursarp.html. Students with questions or concerns should contact the Associate University Registrar (Records and Services), University Registrar's Office, Gordon Hall, Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, K7L 3N6, 1-613-533-6000 (74053), or visit us online at http://www.queensu.ca/accessandprivacy.
Senate Policy on Student Debtors
Any student with an overdue debt with the University will not be permitted to register or to receive examination results, official transcripts, or marks reports until the outstanding account is settled in full or until an acceptable arrangement for settling the account is made by the department(s) concerned. (For some departments only full settlement of the debt will be considered a satisfactory arrangement.)
Students with Disabilities
Queen's University is committed to facilitating the integration of students with disabilities into the University community. While all students must satisfy the essential requirements for courses and programs, the administration, faculty, staff, and students at Queen's are expected to provide reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodation may require members of the University community to exercise creativity and flexibility in responding to the needs of students with disabilities while maintaining academic standards.
This policy acknowledges that fundamental to the academic and personal success of students is their responsibility both to demonstrate self reliance and to identify needs requiring accommodation.
Senate Policy on Student Names
As Queen's University is committed to the integrity of its student records, each student is required to provide either on application for admission or for registration, his or her complete, legal name. Any requests to change a name, by means of alteration, deletion, substitution or addition must be accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation.
Language Policy
Departments offering courses of instruction in a language other than English normally require that assignments and examinations be submitted in that language. In other departments, examinations and assignments are to be submitted in English, except where an agreement has been entered into between an instructor and a student, with the approval of the Department Head, for submission of work in a language other than English.
Transfer of Course Credits
Acceptance of transfer credits among Ontario universities shall be based on the recognition that, while learning experiences may differ in a variety of ways, their substance may be essentially equivalent in terms of their content and rigour. Insofar as possible, acceptance of transfer should allow for the maximum recognition of previous learning experiences in university-level courses.
Subject to: 1) admission, and 2) degree, grade and program requirements, any courses offered for credit by one Ontario university shall be accepted for credit by another Ontario university when there is an essential equivalency in course content.
Further details regarding transfer credit policies can be obtained by contacting Undergraduate Admission.
