Course Withdrawls and Repeated Courses

Withdrawals from Grade 9 and 10 courses are not recorded on the student’s Ontario Student Transcript (OST). Only successfully completed courses are recorded.

If a student withdraws from a Grade 11 or 12 course within five instructional days following the issue of the first provincial report card, the withdrawal is not recorded on the Ontario Student Transcript.

If a student withdraws from a course after five instructional days following the issue of the first provincial report card, the withdrawal is recorded on the OST. The student’s percentage grade at the time of the withdrawal is also recorded.

Students who repeat a Grade 11 or 12 course that they have previously completed successfully earn only one credit for the course. Each attempt and the percentage grade obtained is recorded on the OST. A student or parent may request that the Principal identify Grade 11 and 12 courses in which the student’s performance was affected by extraordinary circumstances by using a special indicator. The student’s percentage grades are also recorded. This special indicator may also be used for courses from which the student has withdrawn because of extraordinary circumstances.
