Advancement

Although satisfactory academic performance is prerequisite to advancement, it is not the sole criterion in the consideration of the suitability of a student for promotion or graduation. The School reserves the right to require a student to withdraw from social work programs if the student is considered unsuited to proceed with the study or practice of social work.

Class Standing at Graduation

The designation “with Distinction” will be notated on the degree parchment for any student who has achieved an average between 80% and 84.9%, calculated on all attempted UBC academic courses numbered 300 or higher. The designation “with High Distinction” will be notated on the degree parchment for any student who has achieved an average of at least 85%, calculated on all attempted UBC academic courses numbered 300 or higher.
