I am already successfully passed 90 credits and major and cumulative GPA is enough as well. However, I took one course extra and i will fail this course the second time. this is a adms course, which means is a major course but exceeds 90 credits. can i still graduate with this? or i have to pass this course first? if i have to pass this course first, can do retake it again?

Debarment.. HELP! [18 Nov 2013|07:27pm]
I was debarred from york for two years and this upcoming September is the two year mark. I've just learned that you have to petition to the Academic Committee. Has anyone else gone through this process and has any good advice to give. Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of being re-admitted.
I would really appreciate the advice as I am quite nervous about the process.

Withdrawal or academic warning? [05 May 2013|03:18am]
So I'm a first year global political studies student (LAPS) at york and i just got my final grades and my gpa is 2.25 with a course load of 24 credits and the academic decision area on my report is still blank.

I was doing ok during first semester and a but of second semester and had not recieved any warnings or anything like that.

I sort of fell of the wagon during second semester because I had a I had a lot going in in my family life (I know it's not an excuse and I'm taking full responsibilty.

My question is, would they give me an academic warning first since it is my first year or would I have to go straight to withdrawing for a year?

The website says a student with a gpa under 2.5 must withdraw for a year but I hadn't recieved any warnings during the year about possibly failing.

Debarment? [25 Apr 2013|07:44pm]

So I am an undecided major (I have always had full intent for social work but wanted to be on the safe side in case my high school marks didn't meet the requirement) and this year decided to do my general education requirements. The issue here is that I have failed all 30 credits; I just had a lot of personal things going on and this made the transition to university really difficult. I went to all my lectures and tutorials but just screwed up on the assignments; my GPA will obviously be like at a 0 and I think I will get debarred.

Now, I'm not really sure what to do; I know about the academic petition stuff but how likely is it that the debarment will be waived off? Also, do marks get mailed home?

Is it possible to apply for graduate studies for winter? [24 Mar 2013|11:45pm]
I ve recently decided to go to grad school, but deadline for the fall has passed, is it still possible to apply for the winter term?

My husband dropped one course at the beginning of September and the tuition we'd paid was refunded to his York account. We're a bit short on cash at the moment and could really use that money - is there any way to get a cheque sent to us rather than just have it sit there as a credited amount?

Right, I feel like an idiot for asking this, but any clarification would be helpful. I submitted a financial petition and it was approved. I received the credit note a few days ago. The refund was for a full year course. In the letter it says that the credit note will be applied once enrolment for the session has been completed -- so I'm guessing sometime in April, then, the amount would show up in my student account?

PETITIONS [05 Dec 2012|10:38pm]
Hi everyone!

I need to petition for an academic waiver to withdraw for one year. I have read that it takes 6-8 weeks to process. However, I would like to enrol in the Winter term. Can the process could be faster? I read on the York website that "To help offset large caseloads, academic petitions may be recommended for approval by the Petitions Officer (or equivalent) and confirmed by the Chair of the Academic Petitions Committee (or designate)1. In accordance with the general considerations for granting petitions (set out below), the Petitions Officer shall identify cases which clearly meet the considerations and present them as such to the Chair for confirmation." Does this mean the decision could be quicker if the petitions officer is convinced that the waiver should be granted? They wouldn't need to wait for the committee to meet right? How many officers does the faculty of Health have?

Has anyone been successful in petitioning for a waiver?

Sorry for all the questions. It's my first time petitioning.

Thank you.

Highly technical question:

I'm currently enrolled in a BA Hons program with a certificate slapped on top.

I had to drop a class this semester due to work. I'd been planning to pick it up in Winter, but that section has consistently been full, so I'm making contingency plans. According to the Department, it is highly unlikely to be offered in summer. (The current plan is to finish in August.)

The good news is that it's a certificate course, and it's not necessary to satisfy my BA requirements.

With that in mind, let's say I do this:
- Apply to graduate at the end of summer.
- Enrol in this one course anyway.
- Complete my BA on schedule and graduate in October.
- Complete this final course as a non-degree student.
- Pick up the certificate in January.

Is this a workable solution?

Can I graduate if I'm enrolled in undergrad courses for a subsequent semester?

Can I be awarded a certificate in December/January, or would I need to wait until winter convocation to pick it up?

Question about petitioning for late withdrawal [23 Nov 2012|03:18pm]
I had a few exams to write last week. Before writing the last one, I began to feel very weak and I didn't show up to write it. I know that it probably wouldn't appear to be a medical emergency which would allow me to write a defered exam so i just  wanna petition to have the mark removed ( the mark would be an E since i didnt write this exam) and repeat the course again. Do you think the committee would accept my reasons and remove the grade? Thanks in advance!

Convocation attire [08 Oct 2012|10:48am]
Hey guys,

I'm finally graduating with my BA this Thursday! My only issue is that I have no idea what to wear for the convocation - I'm assuming semi-formal attire is necessary (I'll probably wear a dress), but I know the convocation ceremony takes place in the Rexall Centre while the reception, according to the York website, will be held at Faculty receptions, the locations of which is TBA. I'm assuming that they will be held in the college I'm graduating from, which is a walk and a half from the Rexall Centre, and this weather isn't very dress and flats friendly. Besides bringing a jacket, what kind of dress is appropriate for a Fall convocation? What have you or your friends worn for convocation, or what have people worn to convocations you've gone to? 

Thanks for your help.

Calculating GPA for my last 60 credits [07 Sep 2012|04:34pm]
For grad school applications, I'm wondering what order of courses they take to calculate the GPA? My last 60 credits are listed in different order in my Degree Progress Report vs. my "List of Courses and Grades" I can see as an unofficial transcript online. The latter calculates a higher GPA than the former, since it includes courses that had higher grades than the courses included in the "Degree Progress Report" does. These courses are all within the same academic session mind you. Now, I'm wondering what order they look at the courses during the application process? It would save me a lot of pain and money if I knew that they drop your lowest grade in favour of a higher one if there are more courses than needed in the last session :)

Lights going out on final exam [23 Aug 2012|07:03am]
I don't know if you could petition this,
but during the final exam the lights went out ten times for three minutes each.
The professor gave us extra  ten minutes to make up for it.
But the professor didn't take into account that the lights went out for 30 minutes for the final exam
so everyone did bad for the final.

I don't know what I could do about it.
Some people studied very hard for the final, it is fair for the final to be hard.
But it wouldn't be academically fair for us to lose marks cause the lights went out for the final.
It is the school's responsibility to provide us  with adequate facilities for exams.

Big news in York Lanes: several restaurants were inspected last week, and both Sakura and Falafel Hut got yellow cards--with court summons attached.

Sakura is being dinged for a freezer or cooler not keeping the food sufficiently cold to prevent the spread of hazards; Falafel Hut for failing to dequately wash their surfaces and tools between uses.

It seems unlikely that either of them will be going the way of Mangia Mangia Mangia, but this is the first time since 2008 that either of these restaurants have faced anything more stringent than a notice to comply. ("I'll be doing another inspection in 48 hours, and you can have a green card if it's fixed by then.")

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone is in the Computer Science (BSc) program (or has considerable info about it)?
I'm thinking of switching from ITEC (BAS) to Computer Science, but I don't fulfill the high school requirement (MDF4U & SCH4U or SPH4U).
I'm going into second year, but if I haven't taken these courses in high school would York still let me transfer from ITEC to CS?
Can I take intro courses to math and chem or physics to make up for it?
Does anyone know?

Also are the ITEC & CS programs really different from each other?
Is CS a lot more challenging?

Thank you!

Big changes at the Student Centre: KFC, Subway and Blumont Bistro are all completely gone. (Signs torn down, service windows blocked off... completely gone.)

Anyone know what's going on? The Student Centre Website is mum, and I'm not finding anything in the yfile.
