Earlier this year UOW implemented temporary changes to grading process and new academic support measures for students to help minimise the effects of COVID-19.
From sessions commencing on, or after the 28th December 2020 there will be a return to pre-COVID approaches for all students studying UOW’s programs both onshore and offshore. Changes to the grading process and additional support measures will be removed and are effective from sessions listed in the table below.

Summary of changes:
- Fail Grades –Fail grade (F), technical fail (TF) or unsatisfactory (U) grades, will no longer be removed from your academic transcript.
- Satisfactory grades – the option to opt in to change your grade to a satisfactory grade will no longer be available. The numeric grade students score achieved in each subject will remain.
- Course Progress – Standard provisions of the Course Progress Policy will resume. Students are required to pass more than 50% of credit points (in a study period) to satisfy course progress requirements.
The University is committed to continuing to support you through your studies. Its Academic Consideration policy remains in place for students who may need to request consideration for the assessable components of a subject. For more information about UOW’s academic consideration policy and processes, please visit https://www.uow.edu.au/student/admin/academic-consideration/
Note: UOW continues to monitor the situation and impact of COVID-19 on our students studying offshore. Should unexpected/major developments arise as a result of the global pandemic UOW will review these measures. Any temporary change in process or policy will be communicated to you via SOLS Mail and uploaded to this site.
