F.A.T.S. Knows!

Published: Monday, April 20th, 2009

Final grades and academic standing

If you are a day school student and your classes end April 24, your final grades for this term will be on WebAdvisor May 5. (You may see grades on Fanshawe On-Line, but your official grade is only on WebAdvisor.) Log on; go to Academic Profile, then View Grades. Pick the correct term, and click Submit.

In addition to your grades, each term you are assigned an Academic Standing. Academic Standing is your status towards completing your program requirements. Look above your grades for your Academic Standing for the term.

F.A.T.SIf your standing is Academic Probation or Conditional Continuation you must contact your Program Coordinator to see what you must do to improve your standing next term. If your academic standing is Required to Re-Apply, your registration for the next term will be cancelled and you must speak to your Program Coordinator about being readmitted to your program. Please see College Policy 2-C-05 at for complete details.

Have you completed your program? If you believe you’ve finished, make sure your academic office agrees, or your paperwork might not get sent to the Graduation Office.
