Transcript Legend

Course Number

A first digit of 1, 2, 3 or 4 normally corresponds to the year level in an undergraduate program. Honours level courses are usually identified by a first digit of 4, or a second digit above 4. All other undergraduate courses are at the General level.
A first digit of 5 or above represents a course at the graduate level.

Weight

The weighting factor is used to count course credits and calculate averages. A weight of 1.00 approximates a 26-week (two term) course of three lecture hours per week. Other weights are accordingly proportioned by duration and/or lecture hours. Grade
