Undergraduate Grading System

The Heritage Resources Management Undergraduate Certificate (UC-HRM) uses the province-wide alpha/4.0 grading system to report undergraduate final grades.

For individual courses, the alpha scale uses letter grades ranging from A+ through F to reflect a student's performance and knowledge of the materials covered. Overall academic performance is reported using the 4.0 grade-point average (GPA) scale. A grade point is a value between 0 and 4.00 that is assigned to a grade (alpha or percentage). The grade-point average is a weighted average of all the courses a student has taken with Athabasca University.

Passing Grade, Undergraduate

The passing grade for UC-HRM undergraduate courses is 50 percent unless stipulated otherwise in the course outline/syllabus. All required assignments and course work must be completed and submitted on or before your contract end date.
