Section 1 - Principles for the Posthumous Award of Degrees or Diplomas

(1) Any case should be considered on an individual basis following submission of a formal request. The University can only respond to the requests which are drawn to its attention and there may be other occasions when a student does not re-enrol because he or she has died.

(2) The Faculty offering the program for which the student was enrolled must be able to confirm that the student was completing the final semester or component of the program and be satisfied beyond doubt, on the basis of work already performed during the year, that had the student been able to complete the program, he or she would have satisfactorily completed the requirements for the degree or diploma.

(3) Academic Senate after considering the recommendation of the Faculty Board may resolve to relax the Rules Governing Undergraduate Academic Awards or the Rules Governing Postgraduate Coursework Awards to allow the award to be made posthumously.
