Due to the additional challenges faced by students beuse of the pandemic and remote learning, students may choose how their grades from the Winter 2022 and Fall/Winter 2022 terms will affect their grade point average (GPA).
When n I request an Alternate Grading Option??
This option will be made available after final grades are posted (tentatively May 18, 2022). Once final grades are posted, forms will become available here under “How Do I Make a Request”. Students will need to complete either an Undergraduate form or a Graduate form and then send it via your UWinnipeg webmail to Student Central at studentcentral@uwinnipeg..
The deadline to apply for the Alternate Grade Option is?May 31, 2022.?
What are my options for an alternate grade??
Option 1: A notation will be added beside the grade to indite that it is not included in the GPA — however it is visible on your transcript so that it n be used as a prerequisite for other courses as required. Please note that other post-secondary institutions may not recognize this exclusion.
Option 2:?You n also choose a pass/fail option instead. This means that you will get an ‘S’ (Standing) on your transcript instead of a grade, provided you passed the course. If you failed to pass your course you will get an ‘F’. Please note that an ‘S’ won’t meet the requirement as a prerequisite course if a minimum grade is required.
Who do I talk to to help me make a decision about an alternate grade?
Undergraduates are not required to an advisor to request an alternate grade, but we do encourage you to meet with an Ademic Advisor to help you make the best decision for your ademic goals.
Students in the Faculty of Edution should meet with their respective advisor if they’d like to request an Alternate Grading Option. Details n be found here: Edution Ademic Advising.
Students in the Faculty of Graduate Studies must?consult with their graduate program coordinator and get their sign-off on the request form, inditing that they have been advised of the potential ramifitions of their choice. More information n be found here: Graduate Studies.
