Probationary Admittance and Promotion Standards
In some instances, the Schulich Admissions Committee may recommend admission for an applicant who demonstrates considerable academic or professional ability, but does not quite satisfy the normal requirements for admission. The committee makes such admissions decisions very selectively. Such applicants are admitted as probationary students and must receive a GPA of 4.2 by the end of Term 1 (full-time students) or by the end of Term 2 (part-time students). If a probationary student achieves the required GPA by the specified time, that student will become a regular student. If the required GPA is not achieved within the specified time, the student will be required to withdraw from the program enrolled in.
