Students will be evaluated according to the specific learning outcomes described in the course outlines which include an evaluation plan. A grade will be issued for each course in which a student is registered and a report will be viewable via myStudent Centre after the end of each term to show the grades earned.

Note: Students enrolled in an Apprenticeship program will be graded according to the system established by the Apprenticeship Board. Students will be provided with an evaluation plan at the start of their program.

Students who have outstanding work at the end of an academic term may be awarded the designation “I” (Incomplete). Students will be advised of the work that must be completed and the date by which it must be submitted to satisfy the subject requirements. The notation "I" will be changed to "F" if the assigned work is not completed by the designated date.

If a student does not officially withdraw from a course but is unable to complete the work or write the final examination, for compelling reasons, he/she may be awarded Aegrotat Standing (AG). The student will have displayed satisfactory knowledge in the course work based on evaluation of achievement in the term. Aegrotat Standing may be awarded by the Dean of the School based upon the written recommendation of the Program Coordinator. AG is only awarded when an Incomplete (I) designation cannot be given.

Supplemental privilege (SU) may be granted by the Promotion Committee to a student who has not met the minimum pass requirements in a subject. Supplemental privilege is attached to the preliminary assessment (D or F) and entitles the student to write an examination or complete other prescribed work. No grade higher than the minimum pass for graduation purposes may be earned through a supplemental assessment process. A fee may be charged to cover the costs of administering the assessment.
