Flexible Grade Option (CG Grade)

The University of Calgary offers a flexible grade option, Credit Granted (CG) to support student’s breadth of learning and student wellness. Undergraduate courses using the CG grade will count toward degree requirements, however, will not have any impact on a student’s grade point average (GPA). The CG grade will appear on students' transcript when applied to a course as the final grade.
