Promotion guidelines

Effective fall 2009, Mohawk College introduced changes to promotion and grading. The new passing grade for a course is 50%. For any courses taken prior to this date, the passing grade is 60%.

In addition, in order to be promoted to the next semester (and future semesters) a student must have a WGPA of 60%. Certain courses have pre-requisites for future courses so please refer to your Program of Study.

As well, In order to qualify to graduate from a program a student must have earned a WGPA of 60% overall of the combined courses in the Program of Study.

Summary of promotion policy

  • All courses in your Program of Study must be completed to earn your diploma.
  • If you receive a failing grade in any course you will be required to repeat it (possibly at an additional cost).
  • If you drop a course you will need to pick it up at another time (possibly at an additional cost) Not all courses are offered every term. (Check your Program of Study)

How to withdraw from a course

Attention: Speak to your Program Coordinator. Withdrawing from a course could affect your academic path.

Visit our Registration and Records page for more information.

If a student drops a course within the first ten days of classes, the course will be removed from their transcript. Students who drop a course after ten days, but within ten weeks of the start of classes will receive a "W" (withdrawn) for the course on their transcript. Students who drop a course after their first ten weeks of classes will receive the grade earned on their transcript .

Students who have paid full fees, and reduce their workload to part time due to individual course withdrawal, may receive a partial tuition refund if they withdraw BEFORE the end of the first ten days of the semester. Requests will be reviewed on an individual basis.
