The Graduate Handbook includes information on policies and guidelines that have been formally adopted by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Graduate students and faculty members involved in AU graduate student education should refer and adhere to these guidelines, which provide consistent, standardized, and fair practices across all graduate programs.
With the exception of a few noted courses that are graded on a pass/fail basis, all courses will be graded using the Alpha/4.0 grading scale effective September 1, 2004. See the course syllabus or the specific program regulations for details.
Students are required to follow the rules outlined in the Student Code of Conduct and Right to Appeal Regulations.
Students may appeal any mark given to essays, examinations, assignments, or exercises that contribute to their final grade. Appeals of both failing and passing marks will be considered. Students determine the grounds for appeal and must follow the procedures outlined in AU's Student Code of Conduct and Right to Appeal Regulations.
Information effective September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020.
