Final Grades

Final grades are determined by a combination of assignments, term work, quizzes, final papers, or exams. Grades will be awarded in a letter grade format, and posted on your student portal soon after they are received from the instructor, approximately 30 days after the exam or final assignment date.

Grades displayed in Desire2Learn (D2L) are not official.

Academic Upgrading course final grades will be shown as percentage (numeric) grades on the official transcript.

In the Certificate for Emerging Leaders, student learning is assessed through the evaluation of a learning journal that is submitted following completion of the required number of instructional hours in the student's program of study.

To view grades, go to My ContEd and enter your UCID and password. You can find your courses and final grades under "My Enrolment History".
