Study progress requirements

 An academic progress requirement will apply during the period in which you perform the administrative function.

If you enrolled in an old-style Bachelor's program or a Master's program before 1 September 2012, you are required to obtain at least 12 credits during a 12-month period of administrative duties.

If you enrolled in the new-style Bachelor's program in the Bachelor College on or after 1 September 2012, you are required to obtain at least 15 credits during a 12-month period of administrative duties.

 

Exceptions

There is no academic progress requirement for a student who has studied at the nominal rate and no longer needs to obtain any credits on 1 September in order to be eligible for a Bachelor’s or Master's degree, provided the student subsequently enrolls in a Master's program. Students who re-enroll in a Bachelor's program are not eligible for an administrative grant.

A student who must obtain 12 credits or less (or 15 credits or less for a Bachelor College student) to be eligible for a Bachelor’s or Master's degree is required to obtain the rest of the obtainable credits. 

Pro rata academic progress requirement

In certain situations, you must consult with your student counselor to determine a pro rata academic progress requirement before you start performing your administrative duties:

  • If the period of duties is shorter than 12 months
  • If you are not a nominal student and may obtain less than 12 credits (for example, no outstanding courses but only projects or a free minor)

If you apply for an administrative grant but fail to fully satisfy the academic progress requirement after the end of the academic year in which you hold the administrative function, the financial allowance will be paid pro rata.
