Courses/units associated with a CG grade will not be included when determining eligibility towards academic honours and awards including, but not limited to, the Dean's List, Degree "With Distinction" or "First Class Honours".

For more information refer to F.1.3 Flexible Grade Option (CG Grade).

Performance Review, Probationary Status and Dismissal

Kinesiology students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.00 to maintain continuation in the program. The academic standing of students registered in the Faculty will be reviewed at the end of each Winter Term provided that they have completed at least 18 units at the University of Calgary since their previous review. Students who have not completed 18 units since the previous review will retain their existing status until the next academic standing review. All University of Calgary units, completed since the previous review, are used for the purpose of academic review.

Notwithstanding the specific regulations pertaining to Student Standing, students' academic standing may be reviewed at any time and those with generally poor academic records may be placed or continued on academic probation or required to withdraw at the discretion of the Associate Dean, Academic or other delegate of the Dean. Refer to section F.3.2 Student Performance in Undergraduate Programs.

Probation, Dismissal, Readmission

  1. Students are required to withdraw from the Faculty of Kinesiology if they achieve a GPA less than 2.00 over all courses taken since their previous review.

  2. Probationary status is only available in Kinesiology, subsequent to a successful appeal of a student's "required to withdraw" status.

  3. Probationary status carries the stipulation that a student will:

    1. Retain a GPA of at least 2.00 over all courses taken since the previous review.

    2. Be reinstated in satisfactory standing if they have achieved a GPA of at least 2.00 over all courses taken since their previous review.

    3. Will be required to withdraw from the Faculty if they achieve a GPA of less than 2.00 over all courses taken since their previous review.

  4. Students who have been required to withdraw due to deficient academic performance should note that it is not normally possible to be readmitted to the Faculty of Kinesiology without first taking courses to improve their grade point averages to meet the required admission averages for their programs. Students readmitted after having been required to withdraw from the Faculty of Kinesiology due to unsatisfactory academic performance must maintain a grade point average of at least 2.00 on all courses taken in each academic review period after readmission. Failure to do so will result in permanent dismissal from the Faculty of Kinesiology.

  5. Students required to withdraw from an Honours program under conditions of unsatisfactory academic performance will be deemed ineligible for readmission to an Honours program. However, the student may be considered for admissions to a BKin or BSc program.

Dean's List

The Dean's List recognizes the outstanding academic achievement of students in the Faculty of Kinesiology. It is compiled annually at the end of the Winter Term. To be considered for the Dean’s List, a student must achieve a GPA of at least 3.60 over a minimum of 24 graded units, completed in the preceding Fall and Winter Terms at the University of Calgary. Students on academic sanctions as outlined in the Student Academic Misconduct Policy are not eligible for the Dean’s List.

Note: Students with deferred examinations and/or term work after Winter Term may not be eligible to be included on the Dean’s List.

The University of Calgary, located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta (districts 5 and 6).

The University of Calgary is situated on land Northwest of where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, a site traditionally known as Moh’kins’tsis to the Blackfoot, Wîchîspa to the Stoney Nakoda, and Guts’ists’i to the Tsuut’ina. On this land and in this place we strive to learn together, walk together, and grow together “in a good way.”
