Term 1 - Rule change due to COVID-19
Given the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 global pandemic, any course failed in Term 1 of 2020:
- will not be recorded on your transcript,
- will not affect your WAM
- and will not be included in the calculation of your academic standing.
Academic standing for Term 1 will be calculated but no student will move to Suspension or Exclusion.
What about results from Summer Term? Results from Summer Term are included in the calculation of your academic standing for Term 1. If you did not perform well in Summer Term, it is possible you will be assigned an academic standing level of Provisional Suspension or Provisional Exclusion. If you are assigned a Provisional standing level, further poor performance may result in Suspension or Exclusion.
If you are returning from Suspension in Term 1 of 2020 and do not have enrolment which can be calculated for academic standing purposes (due to the rule outlined above), you will be assigned a standing level of Provisional Suspension.
Academic standing indicates your current progress toward completion of your program.
The purpose of specifying your academic standing is to alert you and your program authority as early as possible to any problem that may negatively impact your progress.
Academic standing is only calculated for undergraduates and postgraduates. It is not calculated for research and non-award students.
