Calendar reg. 7.10 Change of Status from Full- Time to Part-Time
Students who have valid reasons for changing status from full-time to part-time prior to registration for a term may apply for permission by:
- writing to the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs stating the reason(s) for seeking exemption from the full-time registration requirements stated in 7.9
- by completing a Change of Registration Status Form, accompanied by a statement from the departmental graduate supervisor/associate chair (graduate affairs) – and the thesis supervisor, if applicable – in support of their request.
It is understood that such a status change will be granted only in exceptional cases (e.g., for medical reasons.) Exemptions are normally granted for a term.
- Extension Request Form – Time limits are strictly enforced (Section 13.5 of the Graduate Regulations). Prior to considering an extension, FGPA requires a statement as to why the extension is required; and a specific time line/schedule indicating how you intend to
complete your program requirements within the extended term. This needs to be reviewed and approved by your
Research/Thesis Supervisor to guarantee that it meets with their schedule.
- Request to Audit a course form – maximum 2 requests for your entire program
