Five days before the last day to drop a course without penalty, instructors are to inform their students of their course standing so that students can seek advice from their advisors if they feel it necessary. Instructors are to have available an indication of the relative standing of each student for the use of the Dean should such information be requested.
Release of grades to students
Instructors are requested not to give any information regarding mid-year or final grades to students. Students should obtain final grades from the Registrar's Office only, through Acadia Central.

|Letter Grade||Grade Point Value|
Faculty members have full autonomy to create rubrics and scoring metrics or to conduct assessment/analysis as they see fit to arrive at a grade, including internal use of percentages, but the final grade to be submitted will only be in letter format.
In cases where a faculty member uses a grading scheme out of 100 (%) to calculate a final letter grade, that information will be contained in the course syllabus and communicated to students.
