WebAdvisor online system will now accept final grades for 2004-2005
Semester 2 and full-year courses. Although you are able to begin submitting
grades online at any time, the deadline for the submission of final
grades for all students is noon Monday, April 25, 2005.
This deadline is important for our review of candidates for May graduation,
the selection of prize winners, and the recommendation of honours levels
Information on the St. Thomas
University grading system, including the definition of letter grades,
is found on pages 246-249 of the current calendar.
WF = Withdrawn
This is a failing grade awarded to students who withdraw from courses
after the deadline. It is also to be used for students whose names are
on your grade roster and who have not withdrawn Aofficially.@ Students
who withdrew properly through the Registrar's Office should not show
on your WebAdvisor grade roster.
If a student does not appear on the WebAdvisor grade roster, please
send a memo to the Registrar=s Office listing the course section, student's
full names, ID number, and grade.
January 11, 2005 was the last day to withdraw from full-year courses
without academic penalty.
February 18, 2005 was the last day to withdraw from second-semester
courses without academic penalty.
We would remind you that the awarding of an INC grade should be a rare
rather than a common occurrence. It should only be awarded when the
student has submitted a valid excuse and the appropriate make-up work
and deadlines have been arranged in advance. Deadlines for submission
of student work and faculty submission of grades are on page 249 of
