Things are changing quickly this term for students as a result of COVID 19. Workload seems to be increasing or at least changing unpredictably, instructors are acting independently, various internal and external factors are inducing so much extra anxiety on students, and these conditions are not what students are used to.

Other academic institutions realized this and took action. University of Calgary conveyed their care for the student experience and the importance of their mental health, and here is what they did... As an example, if you get an A+, you may accept, and it boosts your GPA, but if you barely pass with a D for example, you can let it weigh your GPA down, or take it as a Pass instead. That is, you have the FLEXIBILITY / OPTION to be able to not repeat the course but it won't show on your transcript as a low-grade due to these unforeseen circumstances.

Other institutions throughout Canada have implemented this program or variations of it, and the beneficiaries here are students. Speak up, don't let one term hold you back, stay safe and keep well.
