CODE/RECR 3100 Conference Your academic advisor must approve the conference BEFORE you attend. You must submit a conference report within 2 weeks of attending the conference. You must include your receipt and conference itinerary with your report.
Calendar vs. Timetable The Calendar is a list of all courses that the university can offer, known as the curriculum. The Timetable is a list of courses scheduled for a specific period of time. The timetable is available on the Registrar’s website or when you login to Acadia Central.
Timetable The timetable lists courses with section numbers. For example: CODE 1013x1 The four letters (i.e. CODE) states the discipline 1*** is the level ***3 is the number of credits X1 is the section (x1, a1, x2, x0) The whole course number and section are required to register for a course.
Timetable University timeslots are approved at Senate and therefore faculty and students should be prepared to attend classes in the slot allotted. Changes happen often. Courses are added. Courses change time slots. Courses are removed. Schools / Departments may or may not have waiting lists for their courses. We cannot register you for a course that is full, you should contact the instructor of the course. Check your Acadia email regularly for updates.
Course Load The normal course load is : 15 credit hours per semester (5 courses x 3 credit hours) 30 credit hours per year (10 courses x 3 credit hours) A Full time student is a student enrolled in 9 (or more) credit hours in a semester. Overloads: Students with a Sessional GPA of 2.5 or better in the previous academic year may register for up to 33h. Students with a Sessional GPA of 3.0 or better in the previous academic year may register for up to 36h. Students with a Financial hold on their student account will not be able to register until this is taken off. Open Acadia course offerings. Summer course(s) possible impacts on registration in the fall.
Did you hear???? BRM/BCD students do NOT need to take Kine Activity labs as part of their requirements. (Kine does) Activity labs are only 1.5 credit hours (2 activity labs to make up a normal 3 credit hour course). You MUST register for Code/ Recr 3100: Conference (in the year you plan to complete a conference or by 3 rd year). BRM/BCD students can take some KINE courses. (i.e. 2133, 2293, 4563, 2293, 3353, 3583, 4233, some 4593s, etc…) Scott Hennigar keeps a list of who will be registered for (his KINE activity labs, Outdoor Leader 1&2), meet with him to confirm your spot!
