Eligibility For Registration - Spring/Summer Sessions
Registration in Spring/Summer Sessions shall be available to full and part-time students provided that the performance in the preceding Fall/Winter session has not been conditioned by deferred, special or supplemental examinations or by incomplete standing and that the Deans of Faculties shall be empowered to authorize registration in a Spring/Summer Session(s) of students enroled in their faculties preceding Fall/Winter Sessions whose performance was conditioned (i.e., by deferred, special or supplemental examinations, or by incomplete standing).
Distance Studies Courses
1. A Department may offer an approved course by Distance Studies only with the permission of both the department Chair and the Dean of the faculty concerned in consultation with the Coordinator for Distance Studies.
2. Persons resident in Canada and Canadian citizens resident in the United States who meet the regular admission requirements of Western University and are granted admission, are eligible to register in approved courses offered by Distance Studies for degree credit.
