Registration blocks for repeated fails

Students will be unable to register (blocked) in a course that they have failed twice. Students or administrators attempting to register a student into a course that has two failed attempts will receive an error message and the course add action will be blocked. This is in alignment with the Advancement Regulations “Except with permission of the dean of the faculty providing the course of study, or where the faculty provides otherwise in its advance regulations, no student may repeat a course more than once” found on the Academic Calendar.

Who will this affect?

All undergraduate students taking Okanagan campus courses during any sessions.

What do I do next?

Contact the respective Faculty/Dean’s Office that the failed course is housed-in to obtain approval to retake the course. Faculty contact information provided below.
