Courses

  • Each course is graded as either numeric (with a grade between 0 and 100 recorded) or as a Credit/No Credit (with the grade recorded as either CR or NCR).
  • Each course is assigned a course weight. This weight is usually 0.50 to indicate a course of regular weighting for one term (or one half year). Course weights used in the Faculty of Engineering range from 0.10 to 3.00.
  • There are a number of non-numeric grades used. The official grades list is shown in the undergraduate studies academic calendar. There is also a transcript legend on the Registrar's Office web site which includes graded, non-graded standings, and requirement designation definitions.

Course grades

  • Course grades are submitted at the end of each term by your instructor. Although your instructor may inform you of your grade in other ways, the only official grade is the one that can be viewed on Quest.
  • Course grades are normally viewable early in the month following the end of the term, however they are not final grades until the Standings and Official Grades date listed in the Important dates.
  • You have the right to a supervised review of a copy of your final examination after the grades are displayed on Quest. The intent of this review is not to debate the grade assigned but rather to help you understand the places where improved answers may have resulted in a better grade. This process is described in Policy 70.
  • In the case of the Co-operative Work Term (COOP) courses, grades are submitted primarily based on the employers evaluation. Normally a credit is awarded for a marginal or higher evaluation.
