Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
The Farm Management and Technology program follows the rules and regulations of McGill University as well as from the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport du Québec for the collegial level.
The number of teaching and examination days is set by the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport du Québec. The sessional dates vary from year to year. At the present time, each semester has 75 teaching days and seven days of exams.
Attendance in class is compulsory. Students with attendance of less than 80% may not be permitted to write examinations.
Examinations and other work in courses will be marked according to the percentage system. The minimum passing mark in a course is 60%.
When a student's cumulative percent average (CPA) or semestrial percent average (SPA) first drops below 60%, or they fail four or more courses in a semester, withdrawal is advised. Students who choose to remain in the program are on probation.
Students on probation are normally permitted to register for no more than 10 credits per semester. They are not permitted to be on probation for more than one semester unless they obtain an SPA of 70% or higher.
Students who do not raise their CPA to 60% (or obtain an SPA of 70%) while on probation are not permitted to continue. They are required to withdraw from the program for one year. If, after this period, students wish to be readmitted, they must apply in writing to the Director of the program.
