Accessing your Grades
As Fall/Winter 2015-2016 grades are received by the Registrar’s Office they will be available for viewing on your Student Center under Academics > Web Academic Report. To run your Web Academic Report, from the Report Type dropdown select “Web Academic Report” and press the “view report” button.
As of May 1, 2016, grades that show under Posted Grades on the Student Center will appear on your transcript on the following day. However, if you are ordering a transcript prior to the review of your academic progression being complete, the following statement will appear on your transcript: "ALL DECISIONS CONCERNING ACADEMIC PROGRESSION AND STANDING HAVE NOT BEEN FINALIZED FOR THIS TERM."
Course Attempts Which Are Classified as Failures
Any undergraduate courses in Arts, Science, Social Science, Kinesiology, Music, Health Science and Media, Information and Technoculture as well as the Affiliated Colleges, will be used in the assessment and average calculation of a general student's eligibility to progress and/or enter or remain in a program. Progression average calculations INCLUDE failed grades. All grades below 50% are considered failures. Grades below 40% will be included in average calculations as 40%, grades from 40% to 49% will be included as the actual grade reported.
Note: Engineering subjects have their own grading scheme. Any Engineering student Grade/mark questions should be directed to the Engineering Dean's office.
If you drop a course after the last day to drop deadline, which will vary according to the type of course in which you are enrolled, it will be recorded as F (failure) and you will receive a mark of 40% for Average Calculation purposes.
Western currently uses a numeric grading scale on transcripts and academic records. Details on this system can be found in the Academic Calendar.
