Options after withdrawing from the Faculty

If you have been withdrawn from the Faculty, you will not be permitted to register as a regular engineering student for a period of one year (12 consecutive months).

A withdrawal does not affect your right to write a supplemental or deferred examination, if applicable. Should there be a change in your academic performance, following receipt of your supplemental and/or deferred exam result(s), you must submit a written request to the Undergraduate Studies Office at bacinfo@genie.uottawa.ca in order to have your file reviewed.

If you have been withdrawn from the Faculty after the winter 2017 term:

Appealing the mandatory withdrawal

If you consider that exceptional circumstances have prevented you from achieving success in your studies, you also have the right to appeal this decision to the Committee on Academic Standing (CAS) of the Faculty of Engineering.

To appeal, you must submit a letter to the academic secretariat (SITE Building, room 1020) or via e-mail at bacinfo@genie.uottawa.ca. This letter (1-2 pages) should explain the circumstances that were out of your control and the basis for your appeal. You must explain why your academic standing is unsatisfactory and present the reasons why the Faculty should make an exception to the regulation and allow you to continue your program. Any document supporting your arguments must also be provided.

Letter of appeals submitted without any supporting documents will not be considered.

InformationYour appeal must be made in writing within 10 working days following the date at the date at which you received the e-mail notifying a mandatory withdrawal. The Faculty of Engineering reserves the right to deny requests submitted after the above-mentioned deadline.

The Student Rights Centre, a service provided by the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO), assists students through the appeal process. They are located in room 101 of the University Centre (85 University Private), and can be reached by telephone at 613-562-5800, ext. 4752, or by e-mail at rights@sfuo.ca.

We encourage you to meet with your advisor to review your options. In order to make an appointment, please contact us by telephone at 613-562-5918 or by presenting yourself at the Undergraduate Studies Office in SITE room 1020.
