Students shall have been informed by their instructors of the grades currently earned by one week before the withdrawal deadline in all courses. (Provided a term paper, assignment or test has been submitted with sufficient time for marking.)
The official grading system must be used to report final grades to Enrolment Services but need not be used for individual assignments, quizzes, etc. An instructor electing not to use the official system for a particular component(s) of a course must provide the class, in the same format that was used for the course outline, with an interpretation of the system being used which would enable students to determine their standing within the official system. Such feedback will be provided on the course outline or the first time feedback is given to students. Departmental/Faculty approval is required in the same manner as for the course outline. This interpretation can subsequently be changed only if the grades of registered students in the section of the course will not be lowered. Departmental/Faculty approval is required in the same manner as for the course outline. Any concerns about changes to the interpretation are first to be addressed to the Department Head or equivalent in non-departmentalized faculties. Students not satisfied should contact the Faculty office to follow normal appeal procedures.
It is at the instructor's discretion to round off either upward or downward to determine a final grade when the average of term work and final examinations is between two letter grades.
The University will not undertake any official conversion or equation of the University of Calgary's letter grades with any percentage or other grading systems.
