Academic Assessment and Progression Rules (Suspension and Reinstatement/Probation)

The Undergraduate Academic Assessment and Progression Rules including the Maximum Number of Failures permitted and the current Probation Program and can be found in the 2017-2018 University of Manitoba Online Calendar in the I.H. Asper School of Business section 3.10. The regulations regarding an assessment of Required to Withdraw from the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Program can be found in the University of Manitoba Online Calendar in the I.H. Asper School of Business section 3.13:

3.13 Required to Withdraw (WF) from the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Program

"All students admitted in September 2015 and thereafter, in the I.H. Asper School of Business will have a formal academic assessment once they have completed 24 or more credit hours of coursework.  After that point a student will have a formal academic assessment at the end of every Fall, Winter and Summer term.

At any point of formal academic assessment, if a student i) has a degree grade point average (DGPA) of less than 2.00 or ii) fails a second consecutive Probation Program, they will be required to withdraw from the Asper School of Business.  A student in this situation will automatically have an academic assessment of "Required to Withdraw from Faculty" (WF) placed on their academic record.

Such a student will cease to be a student in the Asper School of Business but may apply for admission to another Faculty according to the rules of that unit.  If such a student desires to gain entry back to the Asper School of Business, they must re-apply for admission and will have to meet the requirements for admission at the time of the new application."

The documents below detail the procedural steps affecting students in the Suspension and Reinstatement program for students admitted prior to September 2015 and in the Probation Program for students admitted in September 2015 and thereafter.
