Grading Scheme 

How your grade will be calculated in the letter-grade system:

Students in courses offered by the History Department will generally receive letter grades on essays and either letter or numeric grades on other assignments and exams. Only the final letter grade will appear on your transcript and be used to calculate your GPA.

A chart of grade descriptors has been prepared to help you understand your grade.

For the purposes of calculating your course average, letter grades on individual assignments will be translated temporarily into numerical values using the Faculty of Arts and Science approved scale.
