Post-Secondary Admissions, Registration and Graduation

1. Scope

The Post-Secondary Admissions, Registration and Graduation policy does not supersede or negate any rights or responsibilities provided by law, and does not seek to limit the rights or freedom of expression as provided by law; however, behaviour that interferes with Loyalist’s operations, a student’s ability to learn and successfully graduate, and/or the academic integrity of the institution, is unacceptable.

Disclaimer: The information contained within this document is current at the time of publication. Where changes occur, Loyalist will endeavour to communicate these changes immediately to students and provide them with as much advance notice as possible. Information on recent changes can be obtained from Enrolment Services.

2. Application

The Post-Secondary Admissions, Registration and Graduation policy applies to all faculty, staff and all full-time and part-time (prospective, confirmed and registered) students of the College from the time of application to a course or program through to completion of the course or graduation from the program, where these activities or actions are a component of the relationship between the (prospective) student and the institution. Non-credit general interest courses with open admission are not covered under these regulations; those courses are covered in the specific course outlines for each course.

The information contained within this document applies to all students registered in any Loyalist course or any program offered by the College, in any location or in any format. At times, the individual circumstances of a particular campus or a particular program may require a minor variation in procedure. These will be communicated to students at the commencement of the program or particular course. Students taking individual courses must meet admission requirements in order to be awarded the credential.

3. Policy Statement

The Loyalist Post-Secondary Admissions, Registration and Graduation policy defines and provides a framework for procedures related to the admissions, registration, and graduation processes at Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology (hereafter referred to as “Loyalist” or “the College”). This policy applies to all applicants to Loyalist and all current students enrolled in any program or course offered by Loyalist College, in any location.

4. Related Documents or Links

In addition to this policy and the associated procedures, there are a number of academic program and institutional policies, procedures, and codes that may apply and which may be administered by the Academic School or area in which the rules originate.

Use of the following Loyalist policies, procedures, and/or codes may be required in conjunction with administration of the Post-Secondary Admission, Registration and Graduation policy:

  • AOP 216 – Academic Integrity
  • AOP 218 – Academic Freedom – Policy & Statement
  • AOP 224 – Evaluation of Student Performance
  • AOP 221 – Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition
  • AOP 233 – General Education
  • AOP 234 – Student Involuntary Leave of Absence
  • Post-Graduate Studies Admissions Assessment Rubric
  • Course Add/Drop & Program Change Form

Multiple Policies, Procedures, or Codes

In some instances, more than one (1) Loyalist policy, procedure, or code may be applicable. Where multiple internal policies, procedures, or codes apply, those responsible for initiating the processes will confer to determine which College policies, procedures, or codes should be applied first, whether multiple procedures are warranted and which takes precedent. To the extent that there is any conflict or overlap between the provisions of any applicable policies, codes or regulations, such conflict will be resolved by consultation between the parties responsible for the administration of the relevant policies, procedures, or codes.
