Students who have a grievance about the interpretation of the rules and regulations pertaining to their program may present their case to the Vancouver School of Economics Ombudsperson, Professor Craig Riddell (604-822-2106). The Ombudsperson will investigate and seek redress for any legitimate grievance or injustice.
The Vancouver School of Economics takes seriously the student evaluation of its courses and instructors and encourages all students to participate in this process. A summary of student responses to course evaluation questionnaires for the past few years is available for most courses, and may be consulted by students at the School Office (Buchanan Tower, room 997) prior to making course selections.
Students in the Fourth Year of the Major, Combined Majors or Honours Program who expect to graduate in May or November should be especially careful to check that: (1) all Faculty of Arts requirements, and (2) all program requirements have been met. This should be done at the time of registering. If there are doubts about whether requirements will have been met by the end of the current Winter Session, consult the Senior Faculty Advisor's Office (Buch D111) regarding Faculty requirements and a Major, Combined Major or Honours advisor about program requirements.
A candidate for a degree at UBC must make formal application for graduation. Please consult the current UBC Calendar for deadlines. Special forms for this purpose are available at Enrolment Services.
Please note: The Faculty of Arts has approved a new continuation (promotion) policy and a new policy relating to requirements for graduation. All students in the Faculty of Arts must obtain a cumulative average of at least 55% on the final 60 credits of their program in order to graduate (see current UBC Calendar).
