5.1 Faculty Orientation Sessions
All new students admitted to the Faculty must attend an Orientation session in order to be unblocked from registration. Dates will be provided with the letter of acceptance (normally in early July before registration initial access) and on the Faculty website.
At this session students will receive important information regarding their program, registration, and an orientation manual. Upon acceptance into the Faculty, students from outside of the province will be sent an orientation manual and should contact an Academic Advisor to discuss registration and other matters prior to registration initial access.
5.2 Course Sequencing and Prerequisites
Planning the sequence of required courses is essential. Several Faculty courses in all degrees require successful completion of another course in order to register. Some courses may only be offered once per year. Please check current catalogue course descriptions and class schedules in your program to ensure that you achieve what is necessary for efficient course enrolment in future terms.
5.3 Repeating Courses
When a course is repeated, the most recent attempt of that course will be included in the calculation of the Degree Grade Point Average; however, both grades will appear on the student academic history and official transcript. If a student wishes to repeat a course in which a grade has previously been assigned, they should contact an Academic Advisor for the necessary registration override prior to initial access.
Students will be permitted to repeat a failed Faculty-required course only once while in the program. Students who fail the same Faculty-required course twice will normally be required to withdraw from the program.
5.4 Course Space Reserves
Each degree program requires courses from outside faculties and departments. Specific sections in the following required courses have spaces reserved for students:
Recreation Management and Community Development: There are select reserved sections for STAT 1000.
Kinesiology/AT: There are select reserved sections for BIOL 2410, BIOL 2420, and STAT 1000.
Physical Education: There are select reserved sections for BIOL 1410 and BIOL 1412.
Students with the appropriate program code, major and/or minor will be able to access the reserve section of a required course. These courses can be identified in the Class Schedule as having section codes that appear as R01, R02…during registration initial access.
5.5 Experiential Learning Courses (ELCs)
Experiential learning courses (ELCs) provide three credit hours of integrated theory and practice, and include applied activities that are designed to translate theoretical components to hands-on-learning in the gymnasium, dance studio, fitness studio, playing field, outdoor environment or clinic. Below is a list of Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management experiential learning courses:
