By-Law Number 8 replaces the previous Standing and Advancement policy (Policy Number: 7210-7).

There are certain conditions to By-Law Number 8; please pay particular attention to Article 2.01.

By-Law Number 8 applies to all full-time students attending Vanier College in Fall 2016 and onwards. However, students with a full-time status in Winter 2016 returning to study at Vanier in Fall 2016 retain all probation conditions under the previous Standing and Advancement policy, which is the preceding version of By-Law Number 8. This means that students placed on probation in Winter 2016 or in a prior semester under the previous Standing and Advancement policy retain their probation status until they graduate or interrupt their college studies for a regular semester (Fall or Winter).

If you have any questions related to By-Law Number 8 or the previous Standing and Advancement policy, please contact Academic Advising or the Tutoring and Academic Success Centre (TASC).
