New In Progress (IP) Grade policy: This new In Progress policy applies to grades assigned beginning the Summer 2012 term. Students, upon approval from their professor, can request an extension to complete their course (i.e. an IP grade). For a summer 2012 course, this outstanding work must be submitted to the professor no later than the Fall DNE deadline (September 17, 2012).
Please note that all 2011-12 courses follow the IP policy in the 2011-12 calendar. For those courses with an IP grade, the final course grades must be reported prior to the end of the Summer 2012 term (August 31, 2012). Instructors should set deadline dates to the students so that this reporting deadline can be respected. Because a new IP policy will take effect in summer 2012, any requests for IP grade extension for 2011-12 courses will be subject to the policies described in the 2012-13 Calendar. For further details on the IP policy, refer to School of Graduate Studies calendar.
When visiting prospective employers, or simply attending a conference or an event, take along your PhD or Post Doctoral business cards. Though it is not always appropriate to bring your resume to a networking event, your business card can be an essential tool in creating and maintaining the right network contacts.
Only current Concordia University PhD (in good academic standing) and Post Doctoral fellows can order business cards.

Effective October 16, 2008, the grades for Concordia graduate courses transferred into a graduate program now appear on the student record and transcript and are calculated in the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). This helps in addressing the concerns expressed by students that their CGPA does not reflect their actual performance.
