Illness Reporting for Intersession Summer 2020
From May 26 - August 29, 2020, all students (except those in the JD and Dual JD) are asked to use UWinsite Student to report an illness that will prevent them from completing an assignment on time or taking an exam for a specific course. For how-to information, please read this ask.UWindsor article. For the Intersession Summer 2020 semester, you will not need to submit a medical note to indicate illness of any kind.
The Office of the Registrar continues to process transcript requests ordered online through UWinsite Student with the limitation that transcripts will only be distributed by email. We ask that you please allow for additional response time and know that we are working as hard as we can to help. To learn how to order a transcript through UWinsite Student, read this ask.UWindsor article.
Any questions regarding previously purchased transcripts can be sent to TRANSCRIPTS@uwindsor.ca. We will make every effort to send previously purchased transcripts indicating "Pick-up in Registrar" or "Send to Address Provided" out via email.
Official Transcript Submissions
If you are required to provide an official transcript to the University of Windsor for admissions or confirmation purposes, the Office of the Registrar will accept official transcripts emailed directly from other secondary and post-secondary institutions. Emailed official transcripts must come directly from the institution, from an email that can be verified online. Transcripts that come directly from an applicant, student, or non-verifiable email will not be accepted.
Applicants are still able to upload unofficial transcripts and other admissions documents to their UWinsite Student (undergraduate) or EGAS (graduate) accounts as required. Any questions regarding submitting official transcripts through email can be sent to TRANSCRIPTS@uwindsor.ca.

In response to the difficulties that many students are facing because of COVID-19, the University announced Revised Grading Regulations to provide students with new flexibility in deciding how their academic performance is recorded for the Winter 2020 semester.
These Revised Grading Regulations apply to all students except pre-service students in the Faculty of Education and students in the Faculty of Law JD and Dual JD programs.
Once final grades have been posted to UWinsite Student, eligible students will have three options. For each Winter 2020 course taken, they can choose:
- To accept the final course grade assigned by the professor;
- To request a Pass/Non-Pass grade based on the minimum required passing grade in their program or course;
- To voluntarily withdraw from the course without academic penalty.
The deadline to indicate a Pass/Non-Pass grade or VWC for Winter 2020 courses is May 13 at 11:59 p.m. PNP and VWC decision must be indicated by the student in UWinsite Student. This ask.UWindsor article outlines the process.
Pass/Non-Pass grades and late Voluntary Withdrawals have to be manually entered on your student record. These will appear on your student record by May 21, 2020.
To learn more about the Revised Grading Regulations:

- Use the Graduate student pathways to completing Winter 2020 (PDF) or the Undergraduate student pathways to completing Winter 2020 (PDF) to evaluate your options
