Arts and Science Academic Regulations and University Policies Regulation 26    Degree with Distinction


Regulation 26    Degree with Distinction

Graduation with Distinction recognizes the highest level of academic performance at Queen’s. A Degree with Distinction will be awarded to students whose cumulative weighted average on all courses required for the degree (concentration and elective courses) is 80.0 per cent or above, with no failures. For students offering courses from other universities, eligibility for the Degree with Distinction is determined on the basis of the courses taken at Queen’s. In accordance with Faculty policy, averages are not rounded up.

a    B.A., B.CMP.(GENERAL) , B.F.A.(GENERAL), B.P.H.E.(GENERAL) AND B.SC.(GENERAL) DEGREES
For the three-year B.A., B.Cmp.(Gen.), B.F.A.(Gen.), B.P.H.E.(Gen.) and B.Sc.(Gen.) degrees, eligibility for the Degree with Distinction is determined by averaging the credits taken to satisfy the requirements for the concentration together with the best of the remaining credits so that the total number of credits included in the computation is 15.0 (less any transfer credits).

b    B.A.(HONOURS) DEGREES
For the B.A.(Hons.) degrees, eligibility for the Degree with Distinction is determined by averaging the credits taken to satisfy the requirements for the concentration(s) together with the best of the remaining credits so that the total number of credits included in the computation is 19.0 (less any transfer credits), plus general examinations where such examinations are required.

c    B.CMP.(HONOURS), B.F.A.(HONOURS), B.P.H.E.(HONOURS) AND B.SC.(HONOURS) DEGREES
For the B.Cmp.(Hons.), B.F.A.(Hons.), B.P.H.E.(Hons.) and B.Sc. (Hons.) degrees, eligibility for the Degree with Distinction is determined by averaging the credits taken to satisfy the requirements for the concentration together with the best of the remaining credits so that the total number of credits included in the computation is 20.0 (less any transfer credits).

d    B.MUS. DEGREE
For the B.Mus. degree, eligibility for the Degree with Distinction is determined by averaging the credits taken to satisfy the requirements for the concentration together with the best of the remaining credits so that the total number of credits included in the computation is 21.5 (less any transfer credits).

e    Because decisions related to this regulation are solely dependent on particular levels of academic performance, no part of Regulation 26 may be appealed.
