Good Morning,

Just a reminder of the deadline to register in Fall electives is this*
Friday, Sept 7th @ 4:00pm. * Please take a moment to check your course
registrations on My UPEI to ensure that your registrations are correct. The
class rosters will be final after the deadline and no changes will be
permitted. See email below with instructions for registering if you haven't
already done so.




Class of 2020,

The third year of the DVM program incorporates a number of elective
opportunities for students to choose from. During the fall semester, three
full-semester elective courses will be offered (see descriptions below).
During the winter semester, there are numerous elective courses that are
scheduled as 5 week modules. Please be advised that academic regulations
for elective courses are the same as for core courses. Students must pass
all elective courses that they are registered in after the registration
change deadlines regardless of how many elective credit hours they are
registered in. Failure to pass an elective course may result in dismissal
from the DVM program. Consequently, students are encouraged to make their
elective course selections carefully.
