C = Ancillary course: Course is a minor requirement of the program.
AX = Auxiliary course: Course is not a major requirement of the program but is required by the student’s advisor.**’
AU = Audit course: Course is not taken for credit. No grade is recorded.
OS = Occasional course: Course is not a requirement of the program.
Courses taken as “AX”, “AU”, “C”, or “OS” must be added by the department.
** Extra courses which are not actually part of the Master’s or Ph.D. program but which are specified and required by the student’s advisor, may be classified as AX (Auxiliary) and the grade will not be included in the degree GPA which appears on the transcript. However, AX course grades may be used in the calculation of the GPA for continuation in the program and a minimum grade requirement may be required for AX coursework by the Department. Additionally, AX courses are used in the calculation of the GPA for the purposes of Admission and Awards. (NOTE: The University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship (UMGF) and International Graduate Student Scholarship (IGSS) use AX courses in the calculation of the GPA.) The student’s advisor and head of the unit must determine if there is a valid need for the registration in courses under the AX classification. A maximum of 12 credit hours under the AX course classification is permitted while registered in a given program.
Changes in course classifications are regarded as course/program changes and may not be made without approval or after the deadline dates for course changes.
