Grades and Academic Standing

Readmission following a "Failed" Decision
Printable Version Printable Version

Readmission applications will be considered only if it is the student’s first Failed decision within the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.

Students who receive a Failed - Required to Withdraw decision at the end of their first or second term of study may complete the Foundation Term or sit out two consecutive terms as a condition of readmission.

Normally, students in 2A or above who receive their first Failed - Required to Withdraw decision may apply for readmission to the University of Waterloo after an absence of two consecutive academic terms (eight months). Students seeking readmission should meet with an academic advisor and submit an application for readmission for one term of non-degree studies (see Non-Degree Term) at least two months prior to the requested term of readmission. A co-op work term immediately following a Failed - Required to Withdraw standing is not counted towards the two term absence.

If a student is granted readmission into a program in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences:

  • The student's cumulative overall and major (plan specific) averages will be cleared – that is, grades achieved in all previous course work will not be counted in the calculation of cumulative averages.
  • All previous University of Waterloo course attempts and grades will remain on the student’s mark reports and transcripts.
  • Students may only be readmitted to the regular system of study. The co-operative (co-op) system of study is not available to students who have been Failed - Required to Withdraw.
