Final Grades

Your final grades will be posted on ACORN approximately two weeks after the end of each examination period. It is important that you review your academic history carefully so that you can assess how you are doing, where you may have room for improvement, or work with us to create a new academic plan to help you get closer to graduation.

Your final grades make up your grade point average (GPA), and academic standing with the university. There are three types of GPAs:

  • Sessional GPA is based on all passed and failed courses completed in a single term (i.e., Fall or Winter) or session (Summer). Sessional GPA is calculated three times during the academic year: Fall term (September-December), Winter term (January-April), or Summer session (May-August).
  • Annual GPA is based on all passed and failed courses completed in the Fall-Winter session only (September-April), and is calculated at the end of the Winter term.
  • Cumulative GPA takes into account all passed and failed courses.
