Approved by Senate January 22, 1998; "Understanding" approved June 25, 1998
Approval Authority: Senate
Signature: Harriet Lewis
Unless Senate agrees to explicit exemptions, eligibility to proceed in or graduate from an undergraduate degree program will not be based on a minimum grade requirement for each major course. (It should be noted that this does not preclude setting requirements for a minimum cumulative grade point average in a major or minor subject area. Nor does this preclude setting individual course grade requirements when a course is a prerequisite for upper level courses or as part of a core requirement).
Understanding: Certificate programs, like core requirements in undergraduate degree programs, are not covered by the recently approved regulation that prohibits a minimum grade requirement for each major course in a degree program.
Applicability: The above regulation does not apply to:
- graduate degree or diploma programs
- BEd degree
- LLB/JD degree
