Graduate students are expected to maintain adequate progress. This includes timely completion of required course work, progress to candidacy according to the program’s candidacy timeline, and steady and meaningful work on the thesis. Supervisors/graduate programs should ensure, through annual progress reports and otherwise, that the student is informed in writing about concerns regarding progress.
Poor academic standing is defined by any one, or combination, of the following conditions:
- A student who receives a "C+" or lower in any one course.
- Thesis-based students who do not maintain a GPA of at least 3.00 within the last 12 months (calculated in the May reviewing period) are considered to be in poor academic standing.
A graduate program may recommend to the Faculty of Graduate Studies that a student be required to withdraw for lack of satisfactory progress in either course work or research.
The Faculty of Graduate Studies, after consultation with the graduate program and/or supervisory committee concerned, may initiate the withdrawal of a student.

Annual Student Progress Report
Each thesis-based graduate student must file an annual progress report with their graduate program, typically during the month of May every year (the time may vary by program). Delinquent students may be denied registration.
The annual progress report is accessed from the Student Centre at my.ucalgary.ca.
