Grading and Credit

Grading and Credit

During the first week of lectures, each instructor will provide you with a written course outline that should include:

  • Grading guidelines;
  • A description of the topics to be considered in the course;
  • A list of required or recommended textbooks and reading materials;
  • A grading scheme or description of the methods of evaluation to be used in the course, along with due dates for assignments and dates/times of exams. All term work must be assigned early enough in the term for students to complete the assignment(s) by the last day of class. The due date for term work must be no later than the last day of classes. Changes in the distributed grading scheme are permitted only with the unanimous consent of all students registered in the course. In practice, therefore, the grading scheme is almost never changed during the term;
  • The instructor's office hours for students, office location, telephone number for office appointments, and secretarial contact information;
  • Academic Integrity statement: McGill University values academic integrity. Therefore, all students must understand the meaning and consequences of cheating, plagiarism, and other academic offences described in the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures and consult the Students Rights and Responsibilities page at for more information. Note that all newly admitted undergraduate students are required to complete the Academic Integrity tutorial through Minerva.
