Please complete the form in full and click submit at the bottom.  Don't forget to upload the required supplementary documents as outlined in the form.

Please indicate which semester you are requesting permission to take a SAPL class
In the space below, please craft a thoughtful statement of interest describing why you wish to enroll into this/these courses. Please reference specific details about the course content as they may relate to your own pursuits and interests (e.g. to design, to the environment, to sustainability, to architecture, to planning, to digital fabrication, to home building, to policy, etc.).

Lastly, please explain your future academic and professional goals and, if applicable, please mention any interest you may have in one day pursuing graduate-level schooling, i.e. in what field, at what school, and for what purpose.
Academic Standing
Students requesting permission to enroll into SAPL courses must be in good academic standing. While reviewing your request, the course instructor shall consider the cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of your most recent post-secondary studies. Typically, a minimum of 3.00 is required.

Please select either 'Yes' or 'No' to indicate your academic standing based on the information above. If your GPA is below the 3.0, please select 'No'. Your request will still be reviewed and we ask for further explaination below.

If no, please provide some explanation/background, e.g. perhaps your pos-secondary career started porrly because you registered into a highly structured and demanding degree program, such as Engineering or Neurological Sciences. Alternatively, perhaps you have been out of school for some time and working and your professional accomplishments may offset any previously earned low CGPA.
