Bishop’s implements measures to decrease student stress and anxiety

November 18, 2020
Bishop’s University has made a series of decisions that aim to support student completion of the semester and to reduce student stress and anxiety over the results of this semester. Students will be able to opt to have their numerical grade changed to a PASS grade for the Fall 2020 semester. The university has also extended the withdraw deadline to the last day of classes and stated that “no student will be required to withdraw from the University or from any program because of their fall 2020 academic results.” Bishop’s will additionally extend the upcoming winter break by one week, which will give students additional time to rest and quarantine if necessary.
