SAT/UNS Grade Designation Impact on Scholarships

Scholarship Assessment

The Awards Office will assess continuing students for the renewal of entrance scholarships, general in-course scholarships, and the Deans’ Honour List (DHL) after we receive final grades for the Fall/Winter session.

For most undergraduate students, this assessment will take place in June. Assessment will be done in accordance with the rules and regulations concerning the awarding of Carleton University undergraduate scholarships.

The following general conditions must be met. Students must:

  • Be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program
  • Have completed a minimum of four (4.0) credits over the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 terms
  • Have achieved an annual Grade Point Average of 10.0 or better. The annual GPA is calculated using all Carleton University credits/courses taken over the last 12 months (i.e. Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Winter 2021 terms)
  • Have not earned a grade of F or UNS.

SAT/UNS Compassionate Grading Option

The Carleton University Senate has approved the use of flexible, compassionate grading options for undergraduate students in the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 terms. For scholarship assessment this means:

  • Final grades converted to SAT will be used to meet the minimum course load requirement (complete at least 4.0 credits over the Fall and Winter terms).
  • Final grades converted to SAT will not be used in the calculation of the annual GPA (Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Winter 2021).

A final grade of F or UNS will result in ineligibility to renew an entrance scholarship or to be considered for an in-course scholarship or the Deans’ Honour List.

How to Request a SAT/UNS Grade

You will not need to request an UNS grade. With the exception of failing grades assigned as a result of an academic integrity violation, Fail (F) grades will automatically be converted to UNS by the Registrar’s Office for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 term courses.

Once your final Winter 2021 or full-year (Fall-Winter) grades appear in Carleton Central, you will be able to request to designate one of these passing grades as SAT using the SAT Request Form after April 16, 2021.

Students are encouraged to carefully review the SAT/UNS FAQ webpage which covers a variety of questions and information relating to SAT/UNS. If you have questions about SAT or need assistance in making this decision, please contact the Academic Advising Centre for assistance.
