On the back of all transcripts is a key to transcript grades and symbols.
The key explains the:
- Classification codes
- Grading system
- Repeat course policy
- Graduate student information
- School codes
Alternative grading policy COVID-19 notation
The unprecedented events following the COVID-19 pandemic required the University to review its grading scheme (0-100%). To allow for flexibility and compassion, the University Senate passed motions that provided a pass-fail grading option for the following semesters:
Date of Senate / Semester
March 20, 2020 / Winter 2020
October 23, 2020 / Fall 2020
December 11, 2020 / Winter 2021
Students were given the option to substitute a numerical mark that fulfilled the program requirements (as per the Academic Calendar) to a PASS “P”. Numerical grades below the relevant passing threshold were converted automatically to a FAIL “F”. Pass-fail grades are not included in the calculation of the cumulative average.
Please note that students could not request a numerical score if the entire course had already been designated Pass/Fail.
