Notices

If there is a divergence between the information in the printed version of the Graduate Calendar or any of the departmental web pages within the RMC website and, that in the Graduate Calendar web pages, the information in the Graduate Calendar web pages will prevail, since it is recognized as the official Calendar.

The course listings and academic programmes described in this Calendar represent Senate-approved requirements and electives for completion of degree requirements. Circumstances beyond the control of the University, such as severe budget shortfalls, may result in restrictions in the number and range of course and programme choices available to students as compared with those listed herein or in other University publications. The University reserves the right to limit access to courses or programmes, and, at its discretion, to withdraw particular programmes, options, or courses altogether.

In such circumstances the University undertakes to the best of its ability to enable students registered in affected programmes to complete their degree requirements in a satisfactory manner. Prospective students or new registrants are advised to consult the most current information available from the Offices of the Graduate Studies Division and/or of the Registrar in printed or electronic form before making registration decisions or course/programme choices.

The Senate and the Board of Governors of the Royal Military College of Canada reserve the right to invoke changes in this Calendar, in either its printed or electronic forms, at any time without prior notice.
