April 6: update for students — VW date extended to April 21

Voluntary Withdrawal date extended

The Voluntary Withdrawal (VW) deadline for winter term (January 2020 – April 2020) and fall/winter term (September 2019 – April 2020) has now been extended to April 21, 2020.

We recommend that you consult with your instructor and/or an academic advisor to see whether there are other options that could allow you complete the course successfully instead of withdrawing.

      The topic is being considered by the University’s Senate this week.

    Exams start this week, is the pass/fail decision going to be determined before the exam period?

        Hi there,

        Just wanted to bring your attention to this petition that has over 3.000 signatures to implement the pass/fail option.

        The University of Manitoba has already implemented this policy on April. 1st, I’d hope the U of W does the same for their students!

    When will we be able to see what classes will be offered next year?
