|Grades and Appeals |
Challenge for credit courses are recorded as challenge courses on your transcript. Most challenge courses are subject to the same grade scheme as the individualized study version of the course. To view the grade scheme of a course you wish to challenge, refer to the course syllabus.
If you fail your challenge for credit course examination, or you fail to complete all the components of the challenge evaluation, you may not challenge that course again. If you do not complete the course within the contract period, you will be assigned a failing grade. You are permitted only one registration in each challenge for credit course. In order to receive credit for a failed challenge course, you must register in and successfully complete the course by the traditional method. Supplemental exams are not offered for challenge courses.
All challenge for credit grade appeals are subject to an appeals process described in Athabasca University's Student Code of Conduct and Right to Appeal Regulations.
