Academic performance of students registered in the Faculty of Nursing is assessed at the end of each Fall, Winter and Summer Term.
Students must attain a minimum of "C-" in both Kinesiology 259 and 260 in order to progress to Year 2 of the BN Program.
In order to obtain satisfactory standing in the Faculty of Nursing, students must attain a minimum grade of "C-" in all nursing theory courses and a grade of "CR" (completed requirements) in all practice nursing courses. Students will not be permitted to withdraw from practice nursing courses in order to avoid a failing grade.
Students who receive a "D", "D+" or "F' grade in a nursing theory course will be required to repeat it, along with all corequisite nursing theory and practice courses and must meet with the Associate/Assistant Dean (Undergraduate Programs) to determine a progression plan.
Students who receive a grade of "F" in a nursing practice course will be required to repeat it and the corequisite nursing theory courses. Students will be required to withdraw from the corequisite theory courses at the time of the failure of the nursing practice course and must meet with the Associate/Assistant Dean (Undergraduate Programs) to determine a progression plan.
"F" grades in required nursing practice courses and "D", "D+" and "F" grades in required nursing theory (non-practice) courses must be cleared by repeating those courses before students may progress to any further nursing courses.
Students may repeat a course previously failed or one in which a higher grade is sought. However, students usually will be permitted to repeat a particular course only once. Exceptions to this regulation may be made only in unusual circumstances and at the discretion of the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Programs).
Students will not be permitted to withdraw more than once from a particular course. Students will be required to withdraw from the program if they have accumulated a total of more than 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents) withdrawals while in attendance at the University of Calgary.
All grades (including original grades in repeated courses) are used in the calculation of grade point averages for purposes of the official University transcript of record and for progression in the Nursing programs as outlined in the sections "Students Previously in Satisfactory Standing" and "Students on Probation."
