DEFINITIONS
1.
A Course Substitution/Course Directive enables a Certificate student to substitute one Ryerson course for another within their program curriculum. All certificate or degree
level courses successfully completed at Ryerson during the student’s program studies and/or prior to their enrolment in a Certificate program are eligible for substitution
(subject to assessment for program relevancy).
2.
A Course Substitution/Course Directive is not a statement of equivalency between two courses; it is a singular Substitution for one student.
3.
Approval of a Substitution/Directive does not override any other enrolment criteria (i.e., prerequisites).
4.
A Course Substitution determines whether a course that is not part of the normal curriculum for a Certificate program can be used in place of a specific course in the
Certificate’s normal curriculum.
5.
A Course Directive determines whether a course that is not part of the normal curriculum for a Certificate program can be used for credit for an elective group requirement in
a prescribed group within the Certificate’s normal curriculum.
INSTRUCTIONS
1.
Complete personal information and Parts 1-3.
2.
Ensure that the substitute course meets all program requirements and does not violate any restrictions applicable to your program (see The G. Raymond Chang School of
Continuing Education online Calendar for information).
3.
Obtain all required signatures as applicable (see front of form) prior to submitting the form to Curriculum Advising for final approval.
4.
Submit completed form with required Department signatures to Curriculum Advising and keep a copy for your records. Allow five business days for processing.
5.
Approved Substitutions/Directives can be viewed on the unofficial transcript. For instructions and detailed information visit www.ryerson.ca/currentstudents and click on the
"RAMSS Support" link.
REGULATIONS
• Course Subsitutions/Directives must be authorized prior to enrolment in and completion of the course;
• Decisions are NOT VALID until approved by Curriculum Advising, even if the student has already completed the course;
• The substitute course must be of equal value (e.g., one multi- or two single-term courses cannot be substituted for one single-term course; one single-term course cannot be
substituted for a multi-term course);
• Certificate level courses and those designated as "course series" courses are not acceptable for substitution for degree level courses;
• Courses designated as "course series" are not acceptable for substitution towards Certificate level courses;
• A Course Substitution assesses the suitability of the substitute course only;
• Only courses and transfer credits successfully completed will be used for graduation purposes;
• The substitute course may be used only once towards graduation requirements;
• A Course Substitution/Course Directive will be used for graduation purposes only and does not change the student’s Career or Cumulative Grade Point Average;
• If the student is making a substitution for a previously completed course, the student must complete a GPA Adjustment Form available at www.ryerson.ca/forms and submit prior
to the final date to add a course for that term.
