Appealing the Requirement to Withdraw is a two-step process if you wish to remain registered in your Winter 2019 courses.
STEP 1: You must indicate your intent to appeal the Requirement to Withdraw by the end of the day on January 10, 2019 to remain registered in any Winter 2019 courses. To indicate your intent to appeal, please complete the Intent to Appeal online form. If you do not indicate your intent to appeal you will be dropped from all Winter 2019 courses. You are encouraged to meet with your academic advisor to discuss the appeal process.
STEP 2: After submitting your Intent to Appeal, you must complete the Requirement to Withdraw Appeal form and include supporting documentation (such as a medical note, a letter from counsellor, or a legal document) before January 16, 2019. Documentation must establish a clear and substantive link to your academic standing over the period of time the credits were earned
If you submit your appeal by the specified date and your appeal is successful, you will be able to remain registered in your Winter 2019 courses. See How can I appeal the Requirement to Withdraw? for more information.
You will be dropped from all courses you are registered in if:
- you did not submit your intent to appeal,
- you don’t submit an appeal, or
- your appeal is rejected.
After your required 12-month absence from Mount Royal credit courses, you will need to apply for re-admission in accordance with the application deadlines for new students.
Meet with your academic advisor to discuss your plans for re-admission, which may include completing upgrading courses. It's important that you understand how taking credit courses at another institution during your 12-month absence could affect your re-admission plans at MRU.
