Academic Standing and Graduation


  1. Academic Standing
    Academic standing will be assessed on the basis of a grade point average (GPA). Refer to Aegrotat Standing  for rules of computation of the GPA. Students are expected to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 on all certificate courses. Students who do not maintain this level of academic performance may be permitted to continue under academic warning or may be required to withdraw from the certificate program. A review of academic performance is conducted for each student at the end of Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. The assignment and reassignment of categories of academic standing are based on a student’s performance in a minimum of ★12 within the Faculty of Native Studies. If at the time of the first review, the student has attempted fewer than ★12 within the Faculty of Native Studies, the assignment of an academic standing category will be deferred until a minimum of ★12 has been attempted within the Faculty of Native Studies. Subsequent assessments will be made once a further ★12 has been attempted within the Faculty of Native Studies and will be based upon only the courses attempted within the Faculty of Native Studies since the previous assessment. If, at the time of review, a student has attempted fewer than ★12 since the last assignment of an academic standing category, the review will be deferred and the academic standing assigned at the last review will remain in effect until the next review.
  2. Graduation
    Students registered in the University Credit Certificate in Aboriginal Governance and Partnership must meet all certificate program requirements and present a certificate graduation average of at least 2.0 on all certificate courses.
