New Calgary Campus-admitted undergraduate students are normally provided with an individually-customized Program Planning Guide (PPG) which will usually be distributed via email from the Calgary Advising team prior to starting their first semester.
Your PPG will detail the precise number and types courses that you will personally need to complete for your individual program (including any approved transfer credit, waivers, duplicates, or substitutions, where merited) and will essentially serve as your “graduation checklist”.
It is strongly recommended for all students to always consult their original PPG + regularly connect with an advisor about their program courses, ideally once-a-semester before the start of every new registration period, as to ensure that they are on an optimal path to graduation.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you need to have your original PPG re-sent to you (e.g. your previous copy has either been lost or misplaced)
- Downloadable digital copies of blank PPGs can be found here (organized by calendar year - left-hand pane)
IMPORTANT NOTE: While PPGs can be subject to annual updates/revision, all admitted students will only be expected to follow the course and program requirements as displayed on their advisor-audited PPG from their original calendar year, so long as they are continuously registered in classes during every passing Fall (Sept-Dec) and Spring (Jan-Apr) semester between admission-to-graduation (i.e. no breaks or leaves of absences in between).
Students who end up taking a break from their studies for at least 1 full year (or greater), will subsequently have their program requirements updated to reflect the curriculum of the current calendar year, upon their reapplication and successful re-admittance back to the university. Taking a break from courses during the summertime (May-Aug) will not result in any administrative consequences.
Any courses which may be present on newer PPGs that were not previously displayed on one's original PPG will not need to be completed by the student, unless they want to take these courses for their own personal interest and are aware that they might end up being extra to their program.
