S102 Course Outline S407 Course Outline

Core & Non-core Courses

60% pass

  • Core courses:

    • Fab Theory, Lab Procedures, Work terms

  • Non-core courses:

    • Anatomy, Kin&Biomech, Pathology, English, electives & Prof Issues

Possible Scenarios for Diploma

Pass all courses: The student graduates with a diploma

  • Pass core courses and failing one non-core course:

    • The student may stay in the program, but will not graduate with a diploma, and hence not be eligible to begin their internship. At the discretion of the course’s instructor, the student may be permitted to write a supplemental exam. If the supplemental is passed, then the grade for that course will be amended to a C- (60%).

  • Failing more than one non-core course and/or a single core course:

    • The student cannot proceed to the subsequent term, or graduate if they are in their final term. The student must repeat and pass the failed course before continuing or graduating.

Promotion Meetings
These meetings will occur at three times throughout the course of the school year, these meetings are set to provide any student struggling some resources and guidance moving forward. Students may also meet with faculty to simply discuss their progress in classes and to seek feedback on where they can improve or to start aligning themselves for their future aspirations.

Reasons for holding a promotions meeting:

  • Promotions meeting (faculty level)

    • Identification of students requiring a meeting

  • Promotions meeting (student level)

    • meet with all students that have not passed all their classes, when deemed necessary by full or part time staff.

    • Meet with any student that request it.

  • Each student seen will have a document detailing the reason(s) for the promotions meeting, decisions that were agreed upon, and what needs to be improved. This will be stored in the student's file.
