Grading, Progression and Withdrawal

Vancouver Community College (VCC; the College) supports students in achieving success in their courses and programs by providing:

  • A framework of evaluation and a clear definition of what constitutes success in a course and/or program.
  • Timely feedback so that students may assess their academic status and seek help in meeting a course and/or program expectations.
  • Support structures and processes to assist students in achieving success.
  • A clear process for withdrawing from programs or courses.

This policy informs the College community about the program/course grading standards; standards for progression; support for student success; and withdrawal requirements. It also enables student achievement to be recognized meaningfully beyond the institution and enables the College to make consistent decisions regarding students' progress and achievement level.
