Engineering Supplemental Exam Information

Please refer to the Academic Calendar for complete information on Regulation 14 http://calendar.engineering.queensu.ca/content.php?catoid=2&navoid=42#faculty-regulation

Eligibility:

  • a fall and winter term GPA of 0.7 or higher, and a cumulative GPA of 1.60 or higher, and a final mark of ‘FR’ in the failed upper-year course.
  • Only three examinations can be written in a student’s degree program, with no more than two in any calendar year.
  • Failure to write a supplemental examination with which a student is registered will receive a mark of ZERO “0”
  • FR Grade(40%-49%) Failure with review is the grade in the course that is necessary to apply for a Supplemental Exam
  • Students must apply for a Supplemental Exam using the application on the forms page.
  • (NOTE:  Supplemental exams are not available for Complementary Studies courses or first-year APSC courses.)
  • Questions? Contact Micheline Johnston in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Student Services Office.

How an “FR” Grade affects Fall Term CORE Course Registration

  • If the course with an “FR” is a prerequisite for a fall term CORE courses, those courses will not be preloaded in SOLUS and will be removed by the prerequisite check program just before September 1st
  • Winter term courses will be preloaded but removed in January if there is a missing prerequisite.
  • If a supplemental exam is taken in September and is a prerequisite for a CORE course in the fall, students should attend those CORE classes in September even though you are not registered in them. 
  • Once the final mark is submitted (instructors typically have 10 working days after the exam is written to submit marks), and you have passed the course, you will be able to register in those fall term CORE courses that were affected in SOLUS. 

Final Grade is an “IN”

  • If a final grade of “IN” (incomplete) shows on your transcript, you will likely be writing the final exam for this course along with the students writing Supplemental exams in September. 
  • no application or fee required because this grade is based on extenuating circumstances
  • a confirmation email is sent in the summer, and the exam schedule will be posted below mid-August)
  • The IN mark will be replaced with the new final grade.

 Final Grade is “F”

  • If you have a final grade of “F”, and the course is a CORE course, you will need to repeat this course at some point.  Retaking a course usually means deferring another course to make room in your schedule and maintain a balanced course load.  In this situation, students usually defer an elective and take it during the summer

How to Apply

The application for a Supplemental is due in June and updated each year in May.  You can not submit the form until final grades are published in May. The form can be found here https://engineering.queensu.ca/Current-Students/forms-online.html
