UManitoba students request alternate grading process

November 27, 2020
A group of student senators and student unions at the University of Manitoba are pushing for the university to consider an alternative grading process for the 2020-21 semesters. The group has written a proposal to UManitoba administration requesting that student be allowed to choose a pass/fail or letter grade, which would be excluded from their GPA, for one course per term in 2020-21. The Student Senate Caucus has also requested that instructors allow students who feel unsafe doing in-person coursework the flexibility to claim an incomplete grade until they can complete their work.
