Minimum Grade Requirement - Major Courses

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).

Approved by Senate January 22, 1998


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.

Approved June 25, 1998


Applicability:   The above regulation does not apply to:

  • graduate degree or diploma programs
  • BEd degree
  • LLB/JD degree
