Pandemic Preparedness

COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)

Update: Wednesday, May 20

SAIT’s 2020 Spring Convocation Ceremony will be held online on  Thursday, June 18 at 1 pm. Everyone who applied to graduate is invited to virtually attend.

In April, when we announced the postponement, we hoped an in-person ceremony would be possible. Due to the size of our ceremonies, regardless of restrictions being lifted, our community is not ready for this.

We've chosen to move ahead with a virtual ceremony. We didn’t want to wait another minute to celebrate our graduands' achievements. There is no cost to attend. Find out more.

 

Update: Friday, May 15

The Government of Canada has announced $9B in financial support for students affected by COVID-19 through a number of initiatives, including the  Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB).

Post-secondary students eligible for COVID-19 emergency aid can apply for the CESB starting Friday, May 15. Look for SAIT as the "Southern Alberta Institute of Technology" under educational institutions.

Update: Tuesday, April 16, 9 am | Grading

For the Winter 2020 term, upon completion of a course and the notification of a letter grade, students will now have one of three options:

  1. keep their letter grade and have it calculated as part of their GPA
  2. choose a Credit Grade (CR) instead of their letter grade
  3. withdraw with no tuition refund.

Once a student receives their letter grade, SAIT will send an email to students with a link to an online form and a deadline date to confirm their chosen option.

Frequently asked questions

COVID-19

How can I tell if I have COVID-19 symptoms?

Alberta Health Services has developed a simple online assessment tool to help you decide whether you need to call Health Link 811 to be tested for COVID-19. Please use the tool and help reduce unnecessary call volumes to Health Link. See:  ahs.ca/covid

Do I have to inform SAIT if I have COVID-19?

As per Alberta Health Services (AHS) protocol, the medical status of citizens cannot be disclosed. If there is a COVID-19 case that is connected to SAIT, AHS will notify SAIT only if the individual posed or poses a community health risk while on campus. In the current situation, SAIT would be notified directly by AHS if there was a verified transmission or exposure risk related COVID-19.

For off-campus situations, a student or employee is only obligated to tell SAIT if it affects their ability to do their coursework or perform their work duties. Otherwise, the student or employee is under no obligation to inform SAIT of their health status.

As a publicly funded and accountable institution, SAIT is legally mandated to comply with Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP).

Winter 2020 term

Grading and course completion

Will I be able to graduate? What about final exams and final grades?

Update, Thursday, April 16

For the Winter 2020 term, upon completion of a course and notification of a letter grade, students will now have one of three options:

  1. keep their letter grade and have it calculated as part of their GPA
  2. choose a Credit Grade (CR) instead of letter grade
    • F grades or anything lower than 50% cannot be converted to a CR.
    • A CR does not factor into a student’s GPA, but does satisfy prerequisites for subsequent course registration and graduation requirements.
  3. withdraw with no tuition refund.

Once a student receives their letter grade, SAIT will send an email with a link to an online form and a deadline date to confirm their chosen option. If SAIT does not receive a response by the due date, the student’s letter grade will stand.

 

Update: Monday, March 30

SAIT is committed to maintaining academic integrity. Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, our approach to course completion and grading is to ensure students complete their studies with the required competencies and appropriate recognition for their accomplishments.

  • Our goal is for SAIT students to end the semester having completed as many of their learning outcomes as possible.
  • Learning outcomes for each course are documented on the course outline in Brightspace.
  • Instructors are working with program academic chairs to identify the best way to assess course completion, which may include an exam or an alternative assessment. 
  • Alternative delivery methods will be explored to allow applied outcomes to be achieved remotely where possible, for example, simulation.
  • If at least 70% of course outcomes cannot be achieved or if any accreditation or regulatory requirements cannot be met, an incomplete or "I" grade will be assigned. 
  • The remaining content will be delivered and completed when students and employees are able to return to campus. 
  • There will be no cost to students who may need to return or do their remaining course work at another time.
  • A final grade will be assigned for each course and GPA calculation will be based on grades earned. 

All students will receive grades to ensure academic standing is maintained and the pre-requisite requirements remain intact, for clarity and continuity in progression. 

What if I am not sure which is my best grading option?

We recommend you speak with your academic chair or program advisor to discuss each option.

How do I tell SAIT my choice?

Within one week of your grades being posted, SAIT will send you an email with a link to an online form to indicate your choice and acknowledge your consent of either keeping your letter grade, taking a Credit Grade (CR) or withdrawing. If SAIT does not receive a response by the due date noted in the email, a student’s letter grade will stand. Students will receive a confirmation of their choice upon completing the form.

How do I find out my final grade?

Your final grades will be posted and viewable on mySAIT.ca. Within one week of your grades being posted, SAIT will send you an email with a link to an online form to indicate your choice and acknowledge your consent of either keeping your letter grade, taking a Credit Grade (CR) or withdrawing. If SAIT does not receive a response by the due date noted in the email, a student’s letter grade will stand.

How will this affect my GPA?

If you choose to keep your letter grade, it will be factored into your GPA. If you choose a Credit Grade (CR), it is not included in the calculation of your GPA.

How will this change affect my eligibility for admissions into a different institution?

The assessment of admissions qualifications is done at the receiving institution. We recommend students contact receiving institutions for clarification prior to making their decisions.

If I choose the Credit Grade option for one or more of my courses, will I qualify for professional accreditation or professional designations after I graduate?

The evaluation of credentials for the purposes of accreditation and designations is done through the third-party association. We encourage students to review the associations’ credential evaluation criteria before making their decisions.

How will this impact my ability to apply for and receive scholarships and awards?

For SAIT internal scholarships and awards, our awards office will continue to assess applications based on the criteria outlined and where academic standing is a component, program GPA will be used. Students should review the criteria of any external awards they have applied for to understand any implications.

Can I choose my final letter grade for some courses and Credit Grade (CR)/Withdrawal (W) for others, or do I need to choose one option or the other for all courses in the winter term?

You can choose course by course. You can choose to accept your final letter grades for some courses and Credit (CR)/Withdrawal (W) for others.

If I choose the Credit (CR)/Withdrawal (W) option for a course that I need as a prerequisite, does the course still work as a prerequisite?

If you choose a CR in a course, it will be used as a prerequisite regardless of your original grade. However, a W cannot be used as a prerequisite. You will be required to repeat the course with a W grade and be responsible for the applicable tuition and fees. A Withdrawal grade may impact your progression within the program and delay completion of your program. Students who withdraw should speak to their academic chair and or program advisor about best options and plans for completing their program.

If I choose to repeat a course that has a CR grade, will I be charged tuition and fees?

Yes. This will be another attempt at the course in a future semester and you will be responsible for the applicable tuition and fees.

What if I am in a course where the final exam/assessment has been postponed?

Students would have been notified their final exam or assessment has been postponed due to an inability to deliver the exam/assessment online. Students in this situation will have to wait until they can complete and be evaluated on the final requirements of the course before they will receive a letter grade. Only then, once a student has a letter grade, can they choose between the options.

Why are other institutions using pass/fail and SAIT is maintaining GPA?
Update: Thursday, April 16, 9 am

For the Winter 2020 term, upon completion of a course and notification of a letter grade, graduating students will now have one of three options:

  1. keep their letter grade and have it calculated as part of their GPA
  2. choose a Credit Grade (CR) instead of their letter grade (F grades and anything lower than 50% cannot be converted to CR)
  3. withdraw with no tuition refund.

Read more under the “Will I be able to graduate” question.

SAIT felt it was important to provide students with a final grade and a calculated GPA to maintain academic integrity, to ensure students and employers know requirements have been met and also to recognize students for their accomplishments. We understand some students have concerns about maintaining their GPA standing given the move to online instruction. SAIT instructors will work with students to ensure winter term grades reflect a student’s term-long academic work and progress, understanding environments have changed. There are many different perspectives on the right approach. Right now, SAIT has made the decision to apply our regular grading scheme to this semester.

If I receive an incomplete (I) grade, what does this mean?

Some SAIT courses require specific testing and hands-on exams that can’t be completed due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Students in those courses will receive an incomplete (I) grade which suspends the program grading and course completion assessment until a date when it can be done. Incomplete (I) grades are assigned by SAIT for this reason only. A student cannot choose an I grade. Students with an (I) grade are not penalized for this and when assessment can be completed, the final grade would be incorporated into a student’s GPA. Students can read more about grading and progression — and the definition and use of incompletes — in SAIT’s academic procedure AC 3.1.1. 

I am worried about taking an exam or assessment online — are there resources to help me?

There are many resources and support services available. Please take advantage of our team of experts waiting to help you. 

Withdrawals and refunds

What if I need to withdraw?

Update: Tuesday, April 14

Students who withdrew are no longer required to submit a request for tuition refunds specific to COVID-19 related withdrawals. SAIT is automatically issuing applicable tuition refunds by mid-May.

 

Students currently finishing Winter 2020 semester online

  • The deadline to withdraw has been extended to April 1.
  • If you’re not in a position to finish the semester, you’re encouraged to discuss the implications of withdrawing from a course with your Academic Chair or Academic Advisor before deciding to withdraw.
  • If you're an international student, please connect with an International Centre immigration advisor before deciding to withdraw. 
  • Students who wish to withdraw will have a ‘W’ grade on their transcript.
  • Students seeking withdrawal are required to follow a process and ensure approval from their Academic Chair or Academic Advisor before they finalize their decision to withdraw.  You can submit your request to withdraw by email to your Academic Chair or Academic Advisor. The email must include: course name, course code, SAIT ID number and a clear statement indicating your decision to withdraw.
  • Students who are withdrawing due to a personal COVID-19 related health issues or severe financial hardships are required to submit a request for a refund and follow an approval process administered by Office of the Registrar and supported by the Academic Division.

What if I want to cancel my Continuing Education class?

If you choose to cancel your current Continuing Education class at this time, a full refund will be issued. To cancel, contact the Office of the Registrar. Given the circumstances and volume, we are doing best to ensure a refund occurs within four to six weeks. 

I am taking a one-day course/my company is sending me on training at SAIT. Is this affected?

Our Continuing Education team or Corporate Training team will be in contact with individuals and companies to offer the option of a refund or to reschedule.

I've been told my program/course is cancelled. Do I get a refund?

If you received a message indicating your course has been cancelled and a refund will be provided, SAIT will process this automatically and you do not have to call us. Given the circumstance and volume, we are doing our best to ensure a refund occurs within four to six weeks. 

Tuition was changing starting in July, what will my tuition be if my classes are deferred?

Due to the complexity and nature of some courses, not all SAIT experiences have moved online — select classes have been deferred for when it’s safe to return to campus.

In February, following the public policy change by the government ending the five-year tuition freeze, SAIT made the decision to adjust tuition, starting July 1, 2020. This policy has not changed and will apply to classes that were deferred in their entirety.

For winter or spring classes that had portions of their classes deferred, there is no additional tuition fee.

There are a number funding options and supports for SAIT students. Contact Financial Advising to talk to a financial advisor. 

SAIT also offers more than five million dollars in student awards every year.

Classes and delivery

How long will classes take place online?

With the Government of Alberta’s decision (March 15) to officially suspend all in-person classes for all K-12 and post-secondary institutions, SAIT has transitioned to online delivery for the remainder of the Winter 2020 semester.

The online delivery method will continue through the spring/summer term as well. Updates will be provided as available.

What about students on practicum?

The safety and health of students is our top priority. Alberta Advanced Education recognizes these are critical methods of program delivery and students can, therefore, continue if the host organization permits their presence. Students who feel unsafe in their practicum or have questions specific to their program should contact their instructor or academic chair to discuss alternatives.  

I’m not from Calgary, can I return home?

With classes transitioning to online delivery for the remainder of the semester, you are no longer required to attend in-person classes and can complete this semester from where you feel most comfortable. Please be sure to let your instructors know. If you're an international student, please discuss your plans with the International Centre first — refer to the International Students page.

Support

What happens if I live in SAIT Residence?

As the province continues to move forward with more measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19, there is a need to decrease density at SAIT Residence and reduce the overall risk to our community. SAIT has asked residents from Alberta to move out of Residence by Monday, March 23 if possible. The Residence team is available to support any students who are not able to move out due to personal circumstances and accommodations can be made to extend their stay as needed. Email residence@sait.ca or call 403.284.8013 for details.

In discussion with Saitsa, it was decided this money would be better left in students' pockets. 

If you currently have a UPass, it will be valid until April 30.  

I’m leaving Calgary at the end of the term, can I access personal, counselling and mental health support elsewhere in Alberta?

Students who will be moving from Calgary to other parts of the Alberta at the end of the semester can call 211 to locate services available in that area. 211 is an essential service available 24/7 by phone. It’s free, confidential and accessible in over 170 languages.
