Accessing your Grades
You can access your grades through the Grades link or the View Academic Summary link on Student Center. The Posted Grades tab under the Grades link displays courses and final grades that are currently available for release on your official transcript. Your Academic Summary will provide a full listing of your grade history..
Students attempting to access grades between April 12, 2013 and May 1, 2013 will not have visible grades for the Fall 2012 or Winter 2013 term (unless all of your grades have been recorded). If all grades have been recorded and are visible to you on the Student Center, they will appear under Academics > My Academics > View My Grades > Posted Grades.
As of May 1, 2013, we will no longer suppress grades. This means that as grades are received within the Office of the Registrar, they will appear under Posted Grades on the Student Center because the examination period will be complete.
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.
