Required to Withdraw
You will be Required to Withdraw from Mount Royal if:
- you were placed on Academic Probation for one semester,
- your cumulative GPA* remained below 2.00, and
- you did not demonstrate Significant Improvement in your last semester of study.
*Grade Point Average from all credit courses completed at MRU
To appeal the Requirement to Withdraw 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 September 13, 2019. Documentation must establish a clear and substantive link to your academic standing over the period of time the credits were earned.
You are encouraged to meet with your academic advisor to discuss the appeal process
The outcome of the appeal will be determined by the Academic Standing Appeals Committee based on the information you provide. Under no circumstances will an appeal be accepted after the deadline.
If you submit your appeal by the specified date and your appeal is successful, you will be able to remain registered in your Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 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 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.
