Examinations and Grades

6.2 Marks and Grades

The final grade for a course is normally determined by a weighted average of the marks for all assignments and examinations completed in the course.

The marks for your assignments and examinations should be available to you approximately five to seven business days after Athabasca University receives them from the marker. Unofficial final grades should be available 10 business days after Athabasca University receives the marks for your last assignment or examination.

Neither of these timelines includes mailing times (if applicable).

For each course you complete, the Office of the Registrar will provide a statement of the final grade that you achieved and the credits you earned.


Information effective Sept. 1, 2019 to Aug. 31, 2020.
