9 Waiver of Faculty Regulations

Every student has the right to request a waiver of Faculty regulations. Students seeking a waiver of University academic regulations should refer to the University Regulations (Undergraduate), Waiver of Regulations.

  1. The Faculty Council reserves the right in special circumstances to modify, alter, or waive any Faculty regulation in its application to individual students, where merit and equity so warrant in the judgment of the appropriate Committee of the Faculty Council.

  2. All requests must be submitted to the Office of the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Studies) for submission to the appropriate Committee of the Faculty. Students must submit their request in writing. Medical and/or other documentation to substantiate the request must be provided. Medical documentation should normally be in the form of the Student Health Certificate, available at www.mun.ca/regoff/forms.php.

  3. Requests for waivers of admission requirements will be submitted to the Admissions Committee who will make a recommendation for action to the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the Faculty.

  4. Requests for a waiver of a course(s) required in academic terms 3 to 8 should be made prior to the commencement of the academic term and will be considered by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies, upon recommendation of the Head of the appropriate Department.

  5. Requests for a waiver of a work term will be considered by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies upon recommendation of the Office of Co-operative Education. Any waiver granted does not reduce the total number of work terms required for the degree below an absolute minimum of three.
