Faculty of Humanities : Academic Regulations
Students who are visiting from another institution are not required to declare a program. This includes incoming exchange students.
Transfer students who enter the University with 27.0 or more units of transfer credit must declare a program before the end of their first term at UVic. Transfer students may file a RDP once they have attained second year standing (credit for at least 12.0 units). Transfer students who enter the University with fewer than 27.0 units of transfer credit must declare a program after completion of 27.0 units of combined UVic and transfer credit.
Students who intend to declare an Honours program must do so by following the requirements outlined in the Calendar entry for that program. Until an application to an Honours program has been approved by the unit offering the program and submitted to the Academic Advising Centre, the student must declare a Major program.
Students seeking to complete a Certificate or Diploma must declare their program in accordance with program instructions.
The normal avenues of final appeal (see Appeals) are available to students who have been required to withdraw from a practicum, at every stage of the process. Students in the Faculty of Humanities may follow regular appeal procedures within the faculty.
