The ratio in which marks for term work and written examinations are combined is at the discretion of the individual departments. To pass a course, a student must obtain a minimum of D- in the combined term and examination marks. Some courses and/or instructors may not require final examinations. In such cases term work only will be used in determining a final grade.
The following cumulative averages are required to proceed in the programs of the Faculty:
Program Overall Major Field Kinesiology Honours 63 67 Health Studies Honours 63 67 Kinesiology General 53 60 Recreation Honours 65 70 Dance Honours 63 67 Dance General 60 63
If a student clears her/his, F, INC, NMR, and DNW grades prior to the next term or session, this grade change may result in a change in the decision on her/his grade report. When an INC is given in a course, all work in that course must be completed by a date agreeable to instructor and student up to two terms from the end of the term in which the course was first taken.
All grades awarded to a student are recorded on the transcript. If a student fails a course, then repeats the course and passes it, both courses are shown on the transcript and both marks are counted in the overall and/or major average. The same rule holds for a student who upgrades a course (e.g. from a D to a B) by taking the same course twice.
Students who are required to withdraw are eligible to apply for readmission only after one year's absence.
It is recommended that during this absence, students do some academic work (extension, distance education, or community college study). Performance in such course work will be taken into consideration in assessing applications for readmission.
For students assessed on the per course basis, net drop/add activity may change the fee assessment.
In general, a net add is assessed at the full rate while a net drop is assessed on the same basis as a withdrawal. It is the studentUs responsibility to ensure the necessary payment for added courses is made promptly. Failure to do so will result in penalty charges being assessed. Refunds for dropped courses are mailed after week seven of a term (week two of Summer Session).
Dean's Honours List
To recognize outstanding academic achievement, the Faculty has established the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences Honours List. To be included on the Dean's Honours List at the end of each academic year, the student must normally be registered full-time (five courses per term) and must achieve a cumulative 80% overall average and a cumulative 80% major average. A student normally must be in the Faculty of AHS full-time for a minimum of 2 terms in order to be eligible for inclusion on Dean's Honours List. The designation "Dean's Honours List" will appear on the student's transcript for that year. A student with a DNW, INC, IP, NMR, UR, or any failing grade on her/his record during that year will not be included on the list. A student who graduates with a cumulative 80% overall average and a cumulative 80% major average, and who, in addition, has no F on her/his record for any academic year will have the designation graduating "Dean's Honours List" appear on her/his graduation diploma.
Submission of Course Material
In situations where a student wishes to submit a body of material to satisfy the requirement of more than one course, the student must notify the instructors of both courses of her/his intention where the courses are concurrent so that they may each decide what is appropriate for their own course.
When one of the courses has been taken in a previous term, the current course instructor must be informed by the student of her/his intention of submitting the same course material. The current instructor has the final decision on the extent to which the material is allowed.
Failure of a student to comply with the above regulations constitutes an academic offence.
