An academically withdrawn student must wait eight calendar months before returning to SAIT to take credit courses or credit programs. During this waiting period, the student may take only non-credit courses or non-credit programs at SAIT.
In some limited situations, however, an academically withdrawn student who has paid for and who is at least 30% of the way through credit courses in the next term may be permitted to continue with those courses; a subsequent academic withdrawal will result in permanent withdrawal from SAIT.
An academically withdrawn student who wants to return to the same program from which the student was withdrawn must meet with the academic chair/coordinator to determine if space is available in the program to accommodate the student’s return, and to determine changes to graduation requirements.
An academically withdrawn student who wants to return to SAIT into a different program from which the student was withdrawn must apply to and be accepted into the program.
A student who returns to SAIT in any credit program after having been academically withdrawn will return on academic probation for that term. If the student achieves a Term GPA and a Total Institutional GPA of at least 2.0 in that term, the student will be returned to good academic standing.
If the student achieves a Term GPA or a Total Institutional GPA of less than 2.0 in that term, the student will be permanently withdrawn from SAIT.
A student who has been permanently withdrawn from SAIT due to academic standing may not take credit courses or credit programs at SAIT, but may take non-credit courses and non-credit programs at SAIT.
