Graduation Requirements

Students are required to obtain credit for the full set of courses listed in the Calendar for any particular program.

For graduation in all branches of Engineering, a student must have an overall grade point average of at least 2.00 with no uncleared "F" grades. The average will be calculated by using the numerical equivalent of the best grade in each course taken. A six-unit course will be counted as two three-unit courses for this purpose.

Note: An "F" grade in any technical elective course or complementary studies elective course may be cleared by a passing grade in another acceptable technical elective or complementary studies elective, respectively.

Degrees "With Distinction"

The notation "With Distinction" will be inscribed on the permanent record and graduation parchment of students who obtain a grade point average of at least 3.60 over the last 60 units taken at the University of Calgary, with no more than one "D" or "D+" grade and no failures. The notation "With Distinction" will not be granted if a student obtains an "F" grade in a CR/F course (including Internship) which has been completed during the time period in which the last 60 units have been taken. For cases in which the last 60 units must include some, but not all, of a group of courses taken concurrently, the selection will be made in the manner most advantageous to the student. Students who have taken part of their work at another university or who have transferred into this School may be granted a degree "With Distinction" at the discretion of the School.
