Departmental Grading Policies

Course outlines describe how marks are calculated in each section of an undergraduate English course.  Please note that the version of a course outline posted on the departmental website (http://english.ucalgary.ca/courses) is the official version of the course outline for appeal purposes.  Please verify all hard copies against this approved outline.  

Course marks for all undergraduate English courses are reported using the four-point system described in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar: http://www.ucalgary.ca/pubs/calendar/current/f-2.html 

Many instructors mark assignments solely with letter grades; however, when instructors use percentages or a combination of percentages and letters, the following percentage to letter grade conversion is in effect:

85 - 89%
