Appeals for Aegrotat Standing

What does Aegrotat standing mean?

Aegrotat estimated standing in a course is reserved for situations in which a student, who has completed and passed at least 60 per cent of the work for a course, but because of illness or other extenuating circumstances beyond his or her control, is unable to complete all of the work of the course (see Academic Regulation 6).  Aegrotat grades will be included in the student’s GPA and can be used toward as credit earned toward a degree program.

If my appeal for Aegrotat standing is granted, what will appear on my transcript?

If your appeal for Aegrotat standing is granted, the course will appear on your transcript with your estimated final grade based on the work you completed to date along with the notation “Aegrotat: Estimated Grade”.  The final estimated grade is calculated into the GPA.

How is an Aegrotat grade calculated?

An Aegrotat grade is a final estimated grade based only out of the work you submitted.  Therefore, if you completed all of the work for a course except the final exam and your final grade grade going into the exam was 75 or B, then your final grade would be assigned as B along with the notation “Aegrotat: estimated grade”.  To be eligible for an Aegrotat grade, the student must have completed at least 60% of work required for the course.

Is there a limit of how many CR and/or AG grades I can have?

Yes there is a limit.  Students may be granted aegrotat and/or credit standing for a maximum of 36.0 units during their entire program.

What is the difference between Credit standing and Aegrotat standing?

Aegrotat standing in a course is reserved for situations in which a student, who has completed and passed at least 60 per cent of the work for a course, but because of illness or other extenuating circumstances beyond his or her control, is unable to complete all the work of the course.  In this case, the student may be awarded a final estimated grade based on the work completed along with the notation “Aegrotat: Estimated grade”.  Credit standing (CR) in a course is reserved for situations in which a student, who has completed and passed all of the work of the course, including the final examination, but because of illness or other extenuating circumstances beyond his or her control, earned a substantially lower grade than might have been expected, normally a grade of C or lower. If this appeal is granted, the low grade will be removed from the transcript and replaced with CR.  A course with a CR notation will not be included in the student’s GPA but can be used as credit earned towards a Degree Program.
