COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS: Changes to Grades, Final Assessments, Course Outlines, Academic Standing, and Course Withdrawal Deadline

Update: March 20, 2020

As of Friday March 20th the University of Alberta is making a number of changes to our normal practices in order to set students up for continued academic success and with your best interests in mind. The changes are meant to ensure equity among students, preserve academic integrity in these challenging circumstances, and to manage the issues presented by an uncertain future including the impact on our students and human resources.

These changes apply to both graduate and undergraduate courses and include the following:

  • Revised Grading Regulations
  • Final Exams and Assessments
  • Revised Syllabus (Course Outline)
  • Academic Standing Regulations may be Modified
  • Withdrawal Deadline Change
