Official Transcript Legend

Limitations and Resources

This transcript reports the academic record of the student beginning with the 1984 Fall term. Find academic policy and procedures that support the Official Transcript in the Academic Regulations section of the Undergraduate Academic Calendar

Language of Instruction

The language of instruction is English (Canadian) with the exception of specific undergraduate or graduate courses and programs offered in French by La Cité universitaire francophone.

Accreditation

The University of Regina is a degree granting institution, chartered through an Act of the Saskatchewan Legislature. The University and its federated colleges, Campion College, First Nations University of Canada, and Luther College, are members of Universities Canada and the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU).

Admission and Transfer Credit

Undergraduate admission is based on requirements published in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar; Graduate admission is based on requirements published in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research Academic Calendar. Transfer credit may be awarded by more than one Faculty towards more than one program.

Credit System

Until the 1993 Winter term, a full undergraduate course load was 4 courses or 16 credit hours per term. From the 1993 Spring/Summer term onwards (1992 Fall for programs in Elementary Education, Vocational/Technical Education, the School of Journalism, and first-year Engineering), the minimum undergraduate full course load is 5 courses or 15 credit hours per term. Full-time undergraduate students are registered in a minimum of 9 credit hours. Normally for graduate students, the minimum full course load is 12 credit hours and full-time enrolment is 6 credit hours; for special cases, please check the Graduate Academic Calendar. Prior to the 2002 Fall term, full-time graduate students were registered in a minimum of 9 credit hours. No minimums or maximums are set for other post-program graduate students including graduate students on extension or registered for internships.

Grading System

Since the 1984 Fall term, the University of Regina has employed a percentage grading system. A grade of less than 50.00% is a failing grade for undergraduate programs. A grade of less than 70.00% is a failing grade for graduate programs. Non-numeric grades are as follows:

AG

Aegrotat

F

Failure

NR

Not Yet Reported1

AU

Audit, no credit1, 2

IN

Incomplete1

P

Pass

AW

Audit Withdrawal1, 2

IP

In Progress1

W

Withdrew from Course2

C

MC

Maintenance of Candidacy1

XF

Academic Misconduct

CW

Compulsory Withdrawal1

N

No Credit

CRC

Credit-COVID-19
(Winter 2020 only)

DE

Deferred1

NP

Not Passed 

NCC

No Credit-COVID-192
(Winter 2020 only)

1Administrative grades are not included in the calculation of a grade point average or when determining the cumulative hours towards program completion. IN and DE indicates that an extension has been granted. IP is the grade assigned to the first term or the first and second term of a single-term course which is scheduled across two or three terms respectively. NR is used when a course is in progress; this includes courses with an end date beyond the normal end of term. CW is used when a student is not permitted to complete a course by a disciplinary ruling. MC is a grade only for graduate students enrolled in some of the Maintenance of Candidacy courses (GRST). MC is the grade assigned for graduate students who have completed the credit hour components of their program of studies, but have not completed all degree requirements. It is also the grade assigned for undergraduate students who are on authorized exchange programs or letters of permission.

2AU, AW, NCC, and W grades are neutral.

The following grades are included when determining cumulative hours towards program completion. Grades of AG, C, CRC, and P are passing grades; F and N are failing grades. These grades have no numeric value and are therefore not included in a GPA calculation.

Grade Point Average

In calculating a Grade Point Average (GPA), grades of 40% to 100% are used as recorded; a grade of NP and grades between 0% and 39% count as 40%; a grade of XF counts as 0%. For courses with these grades, the GPA is calculated by (1) multiplying, for each course, the credit hours by the grade earned, (2) adding together the products of that multiplication, (3) adding together the credit hours for the courses used, and (4) dividing the first sum by the second. The calculation is not rounded but is truncated to two decimal places.

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is based on all U of R courses taken, whether passed or failed, undergraduate and graduate, repeated or not.

The undergraduate grade point average (UGPA) is based on all U of R courses taken, but when a course has been repeated, only the grade in the most recent approved attempt is used. Excluded grades are flagged with an asterisk on the left-hand side of the transcript. The most current UGPA, the calculation which governs undergraduate academic progress, appears at the end of the undergraduate transcript. The undergraduate total of cumulative earned hours includes UGPA credit hours and credit hours in passed courses with non-numeric grades.

The program grade point average (PGPA) is calculated according to UGPA rules, but is based only on the courses that are used in a particular program. The term grade point average (TGPA) is calculated according to CGPA rules, and is based on all courses taken in a particular term (fall, winter, or spring/summer).

The sessional grade point average (SGPA) is based on all U of R courses taken during the prior academic year (May 1-April 30). This includes the spring/summer, fall, and winter terms in sequential order. When a course has been repeated during this same time period, only the grade in the most recent approved attempt is used.

The undergraduate graduation average is a PGPA calculation.

Graduate grade point information is available at https://www.uregina.ca/gradstudies/current-students/grad-calendar/index.html.

Class Size and Average

The count of students in the class excludes withdrawals but includes students with other non-numeric grades. The class average is based on students with a percentage grade or a grade of NP or XF.

Academic Action

For undergraduate students, from the 1984 Fall through to the 2001 Winter term, a requirement to discontinue (RTD) was based on annual or accumulated failed credit hours. During these years, only University-level RTDs are shown on the transcript.

Starting with the 2001 Spring/Summer term, the transcript indicates an undergraduate RTD after a period of academic probation. Undergraduate RTDs are based on a low UGPA. The transcript indicates three levels of academic action: a University academic probation or RTD, a Faculty RTD, and/or a Program RTD. See the Probation and Discontinuance section in the Academic Regulations of the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.

Starting with the 2012 Spring/Summer term, the transcript indicates an undergraduate University-level forced withdrawal (MW) after a period of academic probation. University-level forced withdrawals are based on a UGPA below 60.00%. The transcript indicates three levels of academic action: a University-level academic withdrawal (MW), a Faculty RTD, and/or a Program RTD. See the Must Withdraw (MW) section in the Academic Regulations of the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.

The minimum TGPA to qualify for a Dean’s Honours List is 85.00% on 12 numerically-graded credit hours. Some programs or Faculties require 15 credit hours.

More detailed disciplinary notations appear as of the Spring/Summer 2004 term, including the grade of XF. See the Alphabetic grades section in the Academic Regulations of the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.

Awards

Scholarships, prizes, and awards appear at the end of the official transcript.

Graduation

The minimum graduation requirements for an undergraduate degree are: 60.00% UGPA and 60.00% PGPA for graduation, 80.00% for graduation with distinction, and 85.00% for graduation with great distinction. The required PGPA for many faculties and programs is higher than the minimum (consult the specific faculty or academic unit section of the University’s Academic Calendars).
