Parking at Emily Carr University is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available in one of three lots:
70 spaces north of the University which includes 10 wheelchair spaces, 10 electric vehicle spaces and 7 carpool spaces;
30 spaces west of the Monte Clark Gallery;
60 spaces east of the Centre for Digital Media.
To park in any of these lots, you must display a valid parking decal. The cost for parking is $73/month ($92.75/month after taxes) which can be paid at the Cashier in Financial Services.
At the present time it is possible to complete only the Foundation year and a Visual Arts or General Fine Arts major through part-time study. Note: For student loan purposes the definition of a part-time student is anyone enrolled in fewer than 9 credits in any one semester.
For health and safety reasons no animals of any type are allowed into the University buildings. The only exception to this is for trained assistance dogs which are being utilized (or in the process of being trained) by members of our community and guests.
It is an offence of plagiarism to use someone else’s work or ideas as one’s own without proper acknowledgement. Plagiarism and/or failure to document sources properly may result in penalties as severe as a failing grade (F) on an assignment, failure in the course or, if repeated, expulsion from the University. For more information please refer to the Student Code of Conduct policy.
All notices must be posted on designated bulletin boards with the date of first posting clearly marked. If your notice does not have a date you may take it to reception outside of Student Commons to have it date stamped. Any posting without a date will be removed. Postings that are older than three weeks may be removed. Any item mounted on walls, windows or doors will be removed. See the Facilities Office for further information.
In certain circumstances you may be able to register for a class for which you do not have the stated pre-requisite. You are encouraged to organize this request well in advance of the registration period to ensure timely registration. You are still responsible for meeting all degree requirements and must continue to adhere to existing registration rules and course waitlists. Please see an Academic Advisor for more information.
PLA is an assessment, by valid and reliable means, of what an individual has learned through non-formal education, training or experience. This knowledge may lead to credit in a course or program offered by the University. A course is identified and a faculty member teaching the course assesses knowledge, skills and portfolio to determine if equivalent credit may be granted. A student may apply for a maximum of 9 credits towards their degree through the PLA process (including transfer credit).
For further information, contact Academic Advising.
As the University has limited space and facilities, students are normally required to complete their programs in four years of full-time study. However, the University respects the fact that students sometimes discover a more appropriate major in the course of their study and feel a need to change. In such cases, the following policies apply to students who seek to change to another major.
Students seeking to switch into limited enrolment programs, must apply at the same time and follow the application guidelines set forth for Foundation students applying to Degree programs (Majors). Switching into a limited enrolment program will be permitted only in the fall semester each year and only if space permits. Please contact your Academic Advisor as soon as possible if you are considering switching programs.
