Viewing your grade results in Bear Tracks

You can view your grades in Bear Tracks, under Academics > Grades.

Unofficial final course grades are available to students electronically after the grades have been input and approved by Departments. Grades for courses that are completed in the first half of the term are available mid-term.


Obtaining your Statement of Results

Release of Grades: Official statements of final grades in courses are now available to students electronically on Bear Tracks. They are not mailed out to students. Statements of Results are available once your academic standing has been reviewed and approved by the Faculty and it includes your GPA and any academic standing comments that your Faculty may have assigned. You can view your Statement of Results on Bear Tracks under 'Academics', 'Statement of Results'. The Registrar's Office will send an e-mail to your University of Alberta e-mail address when your Faculty has approved the grades and your Statement of Results is available.

Usually, statements are provided at the following times:

Student registered in: Statement on Bear Tracks:
Fall Term only early February
Fall/Winter Terms late May
Spring Term only early July
Spring/Summer Terms late August/early September
