3.4 Student Standing
Grades

The official grading system of the University of Calgary is given in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar.

Dean's List

The Dean's List recognizes outstanding academic performance while registered in the Haskayne School of Business. It is compiled twice yearly at the end of each of the Fall and Winter Terms. To qualify for inclusion, a Bachelor of Commerce student must achieve a grade point average of 3.70 or better on 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents) or more taken in either the Fall or Winter Term at the University of Calgary. Eligibility for those students registered in full-year courses spanning two terms will be determined at the end of the Winter Term. Students on academic sanctions as outlined in section K (Statement on Principles of Conduct) of this Calendar are not eligible for the Dean’s List.

Degree "With Distinction" or "First Class Honours" upon Graduation

The notation “With Distinction” will be entered in the permanent record and on the graduation parchment of a student who successfully completes the Bachelor of Commerce (non-Honours) program with a grade point average of at least 3.60 over the last 90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents) of the 120 units (20.0 full-course equivalents) applicable to the degree. In cases in which the “last 90” 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. A student who has taken part of their course work at another institution may be granted a degree “With Distinction” at the discretion of the business school.

The notation "First Class Honours" will be entered in place of "With Distinction" for a student who successfully completes the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) program to the same standard.

Student Probation and Dismissal

Academic performance is assessed following the term in which 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) or more are completed by the student at the University of Calgary since the previous Haskayne appraisal. All courses taken since the previous Haskayne appraisal will be included in the next subsequent review.

If fewer than 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) have been completed since the previous Haskayne appraisal, the existing status is retained by the student until the next subsequent review.

For unconditional progress through the Bachelor of Commerce program students must earn a grade point average of no less than 2.00.

Students who earn a grade point average of less than 1.70 on 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) or more taken since their previous Haskayne appraisal, will be required to withdraw from the business school.

Students who earn a grade point average of at least 1.70 but less than 2.00 on 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) or more taken since their previous Haskayne appraisal, will be placed on probation for the next term in which they register.

Students who earn a grade point average of less than 2.00 on 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) or more taken since their previous Haskayne appraisal and while on probation, will be required to withdraw from the business school. Students will be removed from probation by achieving a 2.00 or better grade point average on 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) or more taken since they were placed on probation.

Students required to withdraw from the Haskayne School of Business for unsatisfactory academic performance must wait a minimum of 12 months from the date of withdrawal to reapply, at which time they will be considered for admission at the next admission cycle together with new transfer applicants. Re-applicants will be required to meet the transfer admission standards prior to being readmitted. Students who are readmitted after having been required to withdraw from the Haskayne School of Business will be placed on probation for the next term in which they register.

Notes:

1. Notwithstanding the above regulations, students who unsuccessfully repeat a course that is required for graduation, as outlined earlier in 3.3 Course Work, "Repetition of Courses", will be required to withdraw from the business school following the term in which the unsuccessful repetition occurred.

2. Students are referred to section F. Academic Standing in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar for additional University regulations including the maximum number of probationary periods permitted while registered as undergraduates.

Academic Turnaround Program (ATP)

The Academic Turnaround Program (ATP) provides eligible Haskayne students currently enrolled but facing a first requirement to withdraw for academic reasons with the opportunity to continue in the Bachelor of Commerce degree program. Students will receive a written invitation to participate from the Haskayne Undergraduate Programs Office. Haskayne students accepted into the Academic Turnaround Program may continue their studies on probation provided that they fulfill all requirements and are compliant with the conditions of the program. All Academic Turnaround Program requirements will be provided to students in writing by the Haskayne Undergraduate Programs Office. Students who do not fulfill all requirements or who fail to meet the GPA criteria outlined below will be required to withdraw from the business school and the university.

The academic records of Haskayne students admitted into the Academic Turnaround Program will be reviewed at the end of the first year following the placement on probation, regardless of the number of University of Calgary courses completed. In order to continue in the program and the business school, students must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 on all University of Calgary courses taken since being placed on probation with no unsuccessful repetition of coursework. Students who have successfully completed 18 units (6.0 half-course equivalents) or more with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher since being placed on probation will have the probation cleared and will be considered to be in good academic standing. Those with a GPA below 2.00 and/or with unsuccessful repetition of coursework will be required to withdraw from the business school and the university. A minimum of 18 units (6.0 half-course equivalents) must be completed within two years of being placed on probation. Students may not exceed the maximum number of withdrawals permitted while registered at the University of Calgary.

Students who are non-compliant with any of the Academic Turnaround Program conditions will be required to withdraw. Students may only participate once in the Academic Turnaround Program. The transcript of record will indicate the academic standing notation.

International Foundations Program (IFP) Pathways Stream

IFP Pathways to Business students are subject to a joint academic review process by the Haskayne School of Business and the Werklund School of Education. The business school regulations with regards to student standing in credit courses and continuation in the program apply equally to IFP Pathways to Business students. In addition, IFP Pathways participants will have their records reviewed for progression in accordance with Werklund School of Education regulations. Failure to successfully complete the requirements of the program will result in the student being required to withdraw from the business school.

IFP Pathways to Business students must achieve a grade of “C” or better in unpaired academic language instructional courses (IFPX), and a “Pass” in paired language enrichment classes (IFPB). A minimum "C-" grade (or "C" if the course serves as the prerequisite for the chosen concentration), is required in the specified Bachelor of Commerce degree courses. Only International Foundations Program (IFPX) 332 may be calculated in the grade point average.

Unpaired and specified Bachelor of Commerce courses in which the minimum grade is not achieved must be repeated at the next available opportunity. A course previously attempted (excluding withdrawals), may be repeated only once.

Paired courses will be evaluated in conjunction with the corresponding Bachelor of Commerce courses. Where the minimum grade is achieved in the corresponding Bachelor of Commerce course but the paired course is not successfully completed, possible interventions, such as remedial tutorials, will be explored. Where a student withdraws from either the paired course or the corresponding Bachelor of Commerce course, they must also withdraw from the other course in the set. Only the withdrawal from the Bachelor of Commerce course will appear on the student's transcript. However, both courses must be repeated at the next available opportunity.

Appeals related to IFPX and IFPB courses will be heard by the Werklund School of Education, while other appeals will be heard by the Haskayne School of Business. Students are subject to the standard academic regulations found in this Calendar regarding conduct and academic appeals.
