A grade assignment of Pass or No-Pass indicates whether you will receive credit for the course. it also means that the course will not be used in the calculation of your GPA. When it comes to the renewal of the Dean's (or other UWindsor) scholarship(s), only the courses for which you have been assigned numerical grades will be used in the calculation of your average. In some cases, students might select a grade of P to prevent the course from counting toward the grade point average calculation. In other cases, students will opt to take the numerical grade since it may increase their average and make them eligible for renewal.
Students who withdrew from courses on or after March 13 will not be penalized and will be considered to be in continuous study for the purposes of scholarship renewal. The minimum average requirement of 85% will still be a requirement. For example, if a student has an 85% at the end of the Fall 2019 term and elects to take 3 ‘pass’ grades and a VW, the student will be eligible for renewal into the next academic year.
Students in this situation will have the ability to raise their cumulative grade point average in their next semester of full-time study, either in Summer 2020 or Fall 2020. If after Summer 2020 or Fall 2020, a student has attained the minimum cumulative average required to renew their scholarship, they will receive the value of one term scholarship retroactive to the Fall 2020 term. For example, if a student after Winter term has an 84.99% average, they will not be eligible for renewal after Winter 2020. If the student takes courses in Summer 2020 and raises their cumulative average, they will be eligible for renewal in Fall 2020 and Winter 2021. If not, and the student enrolls full-time in Fall 2020 and raises their cumulative average to 85% after Fall 2020, the student will be eligible for their Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 scholarship payment.
For academic-based entrance scholarships, a student’s 12O average will continue to be used based on the final and interim grades reported to the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC) by your high school.We will also review final 12O averages received at the end of June and if final grades increase the overall 12O average, scholarship levels will be adjusted if the overall average is sufficient to assign you a higher-valued scholarship.
