Please be aware that grades you receive from Carleton University, Saint Paul University, Dominican University College, and courses taken in partnership with the Ontario Visiting Graduate Students (OVGS) program are included in your University of Ottawa cumulative grade point average. Grades you receive from other universities aren’t included in your grade point average. You receive a CR (credited course) or NC (no credit) grade on your transcript.
Furthermore, in order for these courses to be credited, you must obtain a minimum grade of 60% (all courses in Nursing and Nutrition Sciences require 65%). At the graduate level, the minimum grade required is 65% or more, depending on the program.
If the required minimum grade is not obtained, an NC grade will appear on your transcript.
You must have an official transcript sent to your University of Ottawa faculty at the end of the term. Otherwise, you will receive an NC grade on your transcript. This does not apply if you are taking courses at Carleton University, Saint Paul University or Dominican University College.
Your official transcript of the results obtained in courses for which a letter of permission was issued must be received by your faculty before May 15 if you are registered for spring convocation and before September 15 if you are registered for fall convocation.
If you drop your course(s) or decide not to enrol in one or more of them, you must inform your University of Ottawa faculty in writing by the stipulated deadline. Otherwise, you will receive an NC grade on your transcript.
Courses you take at another university with a letter of permission don’t count towards the University of Ottawa residency requirements, that is, the number of units you’ve received for courses taken at the University of Ottawa.
