Should your chosen course or section fill before you register, you will be required to choose another course or section. Wait listing is available, but those on waitlists who are full time students finishing their program this Fall, will wherever possible be given priority offers to seats. Once a waitlist offer is made you must accept the offer within 23.75 hours.

 

To maintain Full Time status in the Hospitality Management Diploma program, students must meet the following criteria:

1. Register in a minimum of 12 credits per fall and winter semester

and

2. Achieve a minimum grade of “P” in all registered academic courses for which there is no prerequisite and a minimum grade of C- in which the course is a prerequisite.

 

If any of the above criteria are not met, students may be placed on Part Time Status. Failure to register into any HOSP program courses in any semester may result in removal from the Hospitality Management Diploma program. Students removed from the HOSP program can re-apply after one year. 

 

Courses completed during the summer will count toward the fall and winter semester course count. If a student were to take 3 courses (9 credits) in the fall and 3 courses in the winter (9 credits) they could remain full time students if they were to complete 2 courses (6 credits) in the summer semester.

 

Part-Time 

 

Course registration is prioritized for full-time students. Part-time students will have access to courses where seats are available. This may sometimes cause delays in progress through the program for part-time students.
 
In order to register in the 2000/3000-level courses, students must complete a minimum of 24 credits of the required 1000-level courses, and meet the prerequisite grade requirement  of C- or better or have written consent from the Department Chair..
 
The program is designed to be completed in two years over four semesters - five courses per semester. Taking fewer than five courses per semester will leave you behind and having to complete courses during the summer Full-time students taking three or less courses per semester will be re-designated as Part Time student.

Remember that your fee deadline is 4:00 pm on August 13th for returning International students and August 20th for domestic students.

 

 

August 13th, 2018

All fees are due and payable to avoid deregistration from all courses and removal from all wait-lists.

(For International Students)

August 20th, 2018

All fees are due and payable to avoid deregistrationfrom all unpaid courses. Please pay when classes are added.

(For Domestic Students)

* If the payment deadlines on either August 13 or August 20, 2018 are missed, de-registration will be immediate and without notice.

Assessment Testing

Some of you may need a math assessment in order to access CSIS, ECON, ACCT and FINC courses.  Math assessments are held on an on-going basis throughout each semester at the New Westminster & David Lam campuses. 

 

To register for assessment testing at the New Westminster Campus or the David Lam Campus, please call 604-527-5478 or TTY 604-527-5317.   To access self-serve on-line assessment registration, please go to

 

http://www.douglascollege.ca/study-at-douglas/register/canadian-students/assessment-testing/testing-schedules


There is no accommodation for walk-ins at either campus.    

 

Books

There is a buy-and-sell forum on Blackboard that you will almost certainly start to use immediately for used textbook purchases. A note of caution though, many of the texts are new editions this year so you will want to check with the instructors to see if the previous editions are acceptable to purchase. You can get a list of books required for HOSP through http://www.douglascollege.ca/student-services/essential-resources/bookstore

 

The Bookstore is now open but textbooks may not all be available until the first week of classes.

 

Parking

Paid parking is available above ground or below.  Parking passes are available for above ground only and only once you have registered and paid for your courses. They are available in the Bookstore for $90 per semester. To get a pass, first pay for your courses which can be done online and then present yourself at the Bookstore with your student number and receipt. As parking passes are limited, please purchase your parking pass as soon as possible.

For Bookstore hours of operation see

http://www.douglascollege.ca/student-services/essential-resources/bookstore

 

Alternatively, you can go to the Cashier at the New Westminster campus to pay for your pass.

 

For more information, see

http://www.douglascollege.ca/about-douglas/campus-facilities/parking-transit-rideshare/parking

Lockers

Lockers are $10 per semester.  They will be available starting September 4th at 9:00 am in the Student Union Office, Room A1190.  There is a limited supply.

Please Note:  These dates and times are subject to change.  Please check on the website.  This is the link: https://www.douglascollege.ca/student-life/get-oriented/new-student-orientation

 

Disney

 

Douglas College in conjunction with University California Riverside and Walt Disney World have developed a program which you may wish to consider whereby students work and study at Walt Disney World Florida and earn 9 credits toward their diplomas, 9 credits toward university coop, and in our program you would also earn your 500 hours of industry experience. Please visit http://www.douglascollege.ca/programs-courses/international-programs-exchanges/study-abroad/work-learn/international-co-op/university-california-disney for more information.  You must remember though that by taking part in the Disney UCR semester you are extending your HOSP program by one semester.

 

Fairmont SWEP

 

Each year Fairmont Hotels and Resorts hire students from our program under the Student Work Experience Program to work in Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff or Whistler for the summer. Applications will be due to me by mid January and are available on Blackboard. See me should you be interested.

 

 

Mandatory 500 hours of work experience

 

To meet the HOSP Diploma graduation requirements, you must have completed the course requirements and you must be able to prove that you have worked in the Food and Beverage or Accommodations sector. International experience is accepted. This must be paid work and proof is acceptable in the form of a copy of T4 slip or pay cheque  stub showing cumulative hours and wages. This needs to be shown to the HOSP Program Chair at the time of your application to graduate. You may already have 500 hours of hospitality industry experience coming into the program which is acceptable. If not, you will want to acquire it with part time work during your studies or during the summer term.

 

 

“P” Grade.

 

Please note that you will need to manage your progress through the program by knowing the College Regulations with specific reference to grades and prerequisites.  A minimum grade of “C-” is required to progress onto many courses for which there is a prerequisite.  “P” grades will not allow you to proceed.  In your first year you will need to achieve a “C-” grade or better in all courses except Math, English, Law, Computers, and Communications.  If you receive a grade of “P” or lower in a first-year course (Math, English, Law, Computers, and Communications excluded) you will need to repeat the course(s) in order to complete the program.

 

It is your responsibility to manage your progress through the program.  To help you do so, you need to review the Dates and Deadlines at

http://www.douglascollege.ca/programs-courses/general-information/dates-and-deadlines

 

 

Transfer Credit

If you are applying for transfer credit for courses you have taken at other institutions, you must do so with your application to the College.

 

See http://www.douglascollege.ca/study-at-douglas/register/canadian-students/transfer-your-credits

 

 

Please email me at elliottm@douglascollege.ca to confirm receipt of this letter.

 

Have a fabulous finish to your summer and see you on September 4th at the Coquitlam Campus.
