University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Academic Regulations F. Academic Standing F.1 Grading System and Transcripts
F.1 Grading System and Transcripts

The official grading system must be used to report final grades to the Office of the Registrar.

If the official grading system is not used for individual assignments, quizzes, etc., the system used must be provided on the course outline as well as a conversion chart that enables students to determine their grade in relation to the official grading system. Approval is required as per E.1 Course Outlines. The conversion chart should not be changed during the term. Should it become necessary to change a grading scale, it can only be changed during the term if the grades will not be lowered. Any concerns about changes to the conversion chart should be raised with the Department Head (or equivalent). Students not satisfied by the Department Head (or equivalent) should contact the Faculty office to follow normal appeal procedures.
