Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

  • If you believe a grade is incorrect, contact your instructor to check. After you have contacted your instructor, connect with your Academic Advisor to discuss your options.
  • Not sure what a letter grade means or how to calculate your grade point average (GPA)? Click here.
  • If you failed a course this semester which is a pre-requisite for next semester, don’t wait to change your winter registration!  Be proactive to drop the winter course and fill the spot with another class (the Registrar’s Office will automatically drop you in January if you have not self-dropped).  If you need help determining which courses you are eligible to take, reach out to Academic Advising.

Academic Standing

Academic standing for the Fall 2022 term was released December 23rd 2022. Students on academic probation or suspension were emailed directly to their Ontario Tech email accounts.

What does your academic standing mean?

 

Clear Standing

Probation

Suspension

Dismissal

Definition:

Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (60% or C ) to remain in clear standing.

Students whose cumulative grade point average falls below 2.0 (60% or C ) will be placed on probation.

Students on probation may continue their studies as long as they achieve at least a semester GPA of 2.0 (60%).  Students placed on probation remain on probation until their cumulative GPA is 2.0 (60%) or higher.

Students are suspended if they fail to fulfil the conditions of their probation.

Students on probation who fail to achieve at least a semester GPA of 2.0 (60%) will be suspended for a minimum of two semesters.

 

Students who have been dismissed from a program may be eligible to move into another degree or major provided that they are not on suspension and are not prohibited from taking required courses pursuant to any academic regulation or university policy.

Students who fail to comply with the conditions of reinstatement or whose performance would result in suspension for a second time will be permanently dismissed.
