Students whose cumulative overall grade point average falls below 4.0 (C) at the end of any academic session or who enter the Faculty with a grade point average equivalent to less than 4.0 (C) receive an academic warning. Students on academic warning must achieve a cumulative overall grade point average of at least 3.5 (D to C+) by the end of the next 30 credits in order to continue; otherwise they will have failed to gain standing.
Failure to Gain Standing
Students who fail to obtain the cumulative average for their year and whose average for the current year is below 3.0, will have failed the year, and will receive no credit for courses taken in that year. The grades will appear on their record but will not enter into the calculation of their cumulative averages. If they wish to continue their studies at Glendon, they must apply for re-admission, and, if accepted, will be placed on academic probation.
The academic records of all students are reviewed at the end of each year. Students are placed on probation when they:
a) are admitted with a marginal academic record;
b) fail to obtain the required cumulative overall average for their year level.
They are removed from probation when they obtain the required cumulative overall average for their year level. They may proceed on probation in the ordinary bachelor program if they maintain a 4.4 average on the courses taken while on probation, even if their cumulative average is below the minimum to be removed from probation. Similarly, they may proceed on probation in the Honours program if they maintain a 6.0 average on the courses taken while on probation.
Students on probation do not normally take more than 18 credits in an academic session.
Students on probation who do not attain at the end of the first term a cumulative average of more than 3.0 (D+) are required to discuss the situation with their advisor.
Students on probation will be debarred from the University if they fail to obtain the required cumulative overall average for their year or if they fail to achieve a minimum of a 4.4 average on the courses taken while on probation.
Students who have been debarred, whether at York or another university, may be re-admitted in a subsequent session only if they give convincing evidence that they can profit from university work. Application for re-admission will not be entertained in less than two years from date of debarment.
