Portal now open for student grade options

Brock University’s Office of the Registrar has now created a web page for the Disruption Grade Change Request Form and Procedure.

Last week, Brock University Senate approved new options providing students with greater flexibility and choices on how grades are presented on transcripts for any course affected by the Winter 2020 COVID-19 disruption.

They include:

  • Option 1: Maintain the alpha/numeric grade assigned for the course (default)
  • Option 2: Students choose to replace the alpha/numeric grade with a designation of Credit/No Credit Grades During Disruption.
  • Option 3: Students choose to replace the alpha/numeric grade with a special WDD – Withdrawal During Disruption code.

Students who wish to request Options 2 or 3 are to complete and submit the request form to Records@brocku.ca Requests can be submitted to Records once final grades have been received for all courses and will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. Only one option can be selected per course. Once the request form is processed, the changes are considered permanent and cannot be reversed.

Grade options apply to 2019/20 Fall/Winter full-year and Winter session courses only, and are available to undergraduate and graduate students. Students may select from the above options for each individual course rather than making one selection for all applicable courses.

All students are encouraged to consult with their graduate program director, supervisor or departmental advisor before making a decision to ensure any action taken supports future goals.

These grade options do not include a provision for fee considerations or fee appeals.

Students are reminded to check their Brock email accounts and the Office of the Registrar website for further updates.
