  2. For graduation and progression purposes, a student's averages will be calculated according to the practices of the faculty in which the student is formally registered. Should a student transfer from the Faculty of Mathematics to the Faculty of Arts (or vice versa), the student's average calculations may be revised to reflect the differing average calculation rules.
