Extended Courses

The Section 900 (J Section) Program is designed to give those students who have academic difficulties in fall of their first year a chance to recover and proceed into second year with a clear record. It can also be used by students to improve their overall average and to retain scholarships. The program originated at Queen's in the early 1970's and has proven to be very successful at reducing the failure rate in first year engineering. In fact, the overall failure rate in first year is only approximately 2%.
