remoteRemote Study Declaration - Due Today

Queen's University and the Faculty of Arts and Science expect that students studying in Kingston will return to campus for in-person study. However, if you need to study remotely in 2021-2022, we are committed to facilitating your continued progression through your degree plans to graduation; however, significant adaptations to your plan of study may be necessary

To be able to access remote courses and sections, you need to complete an online form that contains a declaration of your need to study remotely. The deadline to complete this form is Wednesday, July 14, 11:59pm EST. We strongly encourage you to look at the remote course offerings before submitting this form.

If you do not declare by the deadline, you will only be able to register in remote courses after those who declared themselves remote have already done so and, as space is limited, you may not be able to register in the courses you choose. Please rest assured that you will be prioritized for enrolment in the courses that you need to progress through your year. 
digitalDigital Calendar

We are excited to announce the launch of the new digital Academic Calendar. The new Calendar will have a huge impact on your academic experience. You can now easily view your plan requirements, click on a core course and be taken directly to the course description. You can also work backwards from your graduation requirements to easily identify what prerequisite courses you will need for each academic year. 

Mapping your academic journey will be easier to navigate.
