Impacts of COVID-19 on post-secondary students
Statistics Canada invites students to participate in a crowdsourcing collection initiative on how COVID-19 is impacting students. We encourage all students to take part. The data you provide will be helpful for making future plans.
Please take five minutes to participate in this crowdsourcing data collection, and feel free to forward this email to other post-secondary students — the more people that participate, the better the data!
Results from this survey will be used by governments and other organizations to evaluate the need for services and assistance programs to support post-secondary students during and after the pandemic.
Making it happen
Second-year Automotive Service Technology student Randy started out in the field of social work before coming to SAIT. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? Absolutely.
Reminder: Final grades for Winter 2020
For the Winter 2020 term, upon completion of a course and notification of a letter grade, students will now have one of three options: a letter grade, a credit grade or course withdrawal.
After you receive your course grade, you’ll receive an email with a link to a form and a deadline date to confirm your chosen option. We encourage you to speak to your academic chair or program advisor to understand the best option for you.
