When any instance of poor academic standing arises, the student’s program must make a recommendation to Faculty of Graduate Studies. Programs can recommend that the student withdraw from the program or that the student stay in program. If the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies determines that a student can remain in program, the student will be placed on academic probation. If a student who is on academic probation receives a grade of "C+" or below, they will normally be required to withdraw from their program. To be removed from academic probation, the student must meet any requirements set by the Dean of Graduate Studies when the probation began, and must complete one full semester in good academic standing.
If the program permits the student to retake a failed course, the second grade will replace the initial grade in the calculation of the GPA, and both grades will appear on the transcript.
A student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 in order to graduate.
Final grades may be accessed through the online Student Centre at my.ucalgary.ca.
