4 Standing in a Course
a The passing mark in all courses in which a numeric grade is given is 50. A passing grade in courses in which a letter grade is given is A, B, C or P. The basis upon which the final grade is assigned including the weight given to term work, is made available to students by the instructor at the beginning of the course.
b If a student is unable to write the final examination or to submit required coursework because of incapacitating illness or other extenuating circumstances, a mark of “IN” (Incomplete) will be recorded for the course on the recommendation of the course instructor and the Department Head, and approval by the Operations Committee. The submission of a mark of “IN” must be accompanied by documents supporting the request and by a proposed date of completion which shall be as early as possible. In such cases, the course for which a mark of “IN” has been entered will be excluded when calculating sessional and cumulative averages of the student concerned. An “IN” on a transcript does not preclude the application of Regulations 2g and 10. If the student does not complete the course by the date set by the Operations Committee, the mark in the course will be changed to a mark reflecting zero grades on the missing components of the course.
