Lab Exemption Form
Laboratory exemption cannot be used in conjunction with a course substitution request.
If you have previously taken a course with a lab and need to retake the lecture portion of the course due to a failing grade, please follow the instructions and fill out the Lab exemption form.
Conflict overrides will be given only if your request for a lab exemption is approved by the course instructor and the lab portion of the course conflicts with another course.
Students in their final year who require a course that conflicts with their schedule must contact their Program Director for enrollment consideration. For this, you must not have a course overload and must have passed all other required courses based on your Advisement report.
Chang School Prerequisites and Transfer Credits
If you took a Chang school course that is a prerequisite for a full time course, please follow the instructions and fill out the UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE COURSE EXCEPTION (SUBSTITUTION/DIRECTIVE) FORM
If the prerequisite was a transfer credit from another institution, we will be able to verify this by your transfer credit report/unofficial transcript and can then enroll you in your desired course. Please contact the main department if this is your situation.

The Chemistry and Biology Department students share locker space due to the insufficient amount of lockers allocated. Most importantly this decision was made for the health and safety for our student body. On a daily basis, when you attend a lab, the TAGA's in the lab will assist you in placing your items in a shared locker.
Please NOTE DO NOT bring valuables to class, you risk loss or stolen items.
NOTE: By mid September it is a free for all lockers for any unused locker. All Lock and contents must be removed before May 1.
Students with Probationary standing may not continue their studies until a specific plan of studies has been authorized for them by the Undergraduate Program Director. Students who fail to have a probationary plan of studies approved by the Undergraduate Program Director will have their course selection requests or course registrations cancelled for the term in question.
Students should first talk about any course-related concerns they have with their instructors. If they do not feel comfortable doing this or cannot resolve the concerns, they may bring this up with the Undergraduate Program Director followed by the Chair of the Department. Students may also consult Ryerson’s ombudsperson discuss any complaints they may have.
