Grade 11 and 12 Transcripts
The Ontario government has introduced full disclosure on high school transcripts to secondary schools across Ontario. This provides students who are working hard the opportunity to show post-secondary institutions an accurate reflection of their work habits and scholastic achievements. Repeated attempts at senior level courses will be reflected on a student's transcript as well as the original mark.
A student has five school days after receiving his/her mid-term report to withdraw from a course without having the withdrawal noted on his/her transcript. Should a student choose to withdraw after the aforementioned five days, the mark earned will be on the official transcript. Extraordinary circumstance may force a student to withdraw after the aforementioned five days. In certain cases, supported by appropriate documentation given to the Guidance Department a "S" indicator will appear on the transcript to signify extenuating circumstances.
Different post-secondary institutions have varying approaches towards full disclosure which may affect your opportunity for admission.
Please see a Guidance Counsellor if you have additional questions or concerns.
