For All Students

The University announced on April 8, 2020 it is introducing an additional option to its grading system for the Spring 2020 term. All students who complete courses in Spring 2020 now have a choice in the final grade that they receive. Students who pass their course(s) may choose to receive:

  • the final grade they earn OR
  • a grade of CR (credit)

A grade of CR means the student is receiving credit for the course. A CR grade will also count towards program completion and credit totals, but will not impact a student’s GPA.

Please note: Capilano University does not know how other post-secondary institutions will view CR grades for admission or transfer credit purposes. 

How to request a final grade be changed to CR

You should review your final grades via your MyCapU account. If you have a passing grade, but wish to have a CR (credit) instead, please email records@capilanou.ca to request your grade be changed to CR (credit).

You must email records@capilanou.ca from your official Capilano University email address and include the following information:  

  • Full name
  • Student ID Number
  • Course(s) they wish to change their final grade to CR

Requests will be processed in the order they are received after May 1. You will be notified by email once your grade is updated, or if your course request does not qualify.

The deadline to request a CR grade is August 31, 2020. The decision to change to a CR grade cannot be reversed once requested.

Any course that you successfully pass, that ended on or after March 14, 2020 can have the final grade changed to CR. You can choose to have any or all of your qualifying courses from Spring 2020 changed to CR. A CR grade means that you have successfully completed the course and will be included in your ‘credits earned’, but it is not included in your term or overall GPA.

If you want to take a course that has a prerequisite course which has a grade of CR, you will need to receive special permission from the instructor in order to register. You will need to contact your instructor or department and request a pre-requisite override.

CR grades will be counted towards program and credit requirements for graduation purposes. Any questions on CR grades and graduation requirements should be directed to gradapps@capilanou.ca.  

How will my grade of CR be viewed by another institution?

Before making your decision, it is highly recommended that you contact the admissions office at the institution you are transferring to and ask how they will receive the CR grade. CR grades will be accepted by most other post-secondary institutions in B.C. as a successfully completed course.

What if I have taken the course twice? How will the CR grade be counted?

The CR grade will be considered the ‘highest grade’ earned for that course; however, it will not be included in your term or cumulative GPA. The grade or grades previously earned for the repeat course will be excluded from the term, or terms, and cumulative GPA.

How will a grade of CR impact my student loan, award, scholarship, or bursary?

A grade of CR will not impact student loans, awards, scholarships, or bursaries as it counts as a completed course, with credits earned. Any questions about your loan or award eligibility can be emailed to finaid@capilanou.ca

Does a CR or NC grade count towards the maximum number of course attempts?

Yes it does. Note that a "repeat override" is required from your department/instructor for a third attempt.

How does a CR or NC grade impact my academic standing?

CapU's policy on Academic Standing (pdf) continues to apply. If you change your final grade to CR (credit), it will count as credits earned, but will be excluded from your term and cumulative GPA. If you have questions about your specific situation, contact Academic Advising.

How will my overall Academic Standing be affected?

During the Spring 2020 End-of-Term processings (April 28-30), your academic standing will be assessed based on the current and final grades received. Any students whose Spring 2020 academic standing is assessed as ‘Required to Withdraw’ will not be withdrawn from their Summer 2020 courses.

If you request to have any of your final grades changed to the CR (credit) option, your academic standing will be re-assessed and may be revised following this change. Requests for CR grades will be processed after May 1 in the order received. Once your grade has been updated and you academic standing re-assessed, you will be notified by email.

For more information on academic standing, please visit Academic Policies and Procedures.

The U-Pass BC program was suspended starting May 1. As summer courses at all post-secondary institutions in Metro Vancouver are being delivered via remote and adapted learning, the decision was made by TransLink, student associations (including the Capilano Students’ Union) and post-secondary institutions to temporarily suspend the U-Pass BC program until classes return to in-person learning. If you registered in summer courses, your U-Pass BC fee will have been refunded on your student account before the fee deadline (April 28).

The suspension agreement allows Capilano University, in consultation with the Capilano Students’ Union, to resume the program before the end of the summer if it would benefit the majority of students. Feedback on the U-Pass BC program, including perspectives on when to resume the program, can be sent to upass@csu.bc.ca.

Refunds are being provided to students who did not link their April U-Pass through the TransLink website. Capilano University is working with TransLink to provide refunds to those who activated their April U-Pass but did not use it, as well as partial refunds to those who activated their April U-Pass and used less than $41 in stored value.

West Park operates parking services at Capilano University’s main campus. Pass holders who wish to cancel their pass may be eligible for a partial refund. Information about the University’s is on our website. Please contact West Park for the eligibility of your parking pass.

“Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) eligibility will not be affected for international students whose fall 2020 courses will be online due to COVID-19. This is in line with guidance provided to students already studying in Canada or whose program had a spring or summer start date.

Students in this situation may begin their classes while outside Canada and complete up to 50% of their program via distance learning if they cannot travel to Canada sooner.

In addition, they will not have time deducted from the length of a future post-graduation work permit for studies completed outside of Canada, up to December 31, 2020.”

Current International Students

The Government of Canada recently announced it is removing barriers for international students who work in essential services to help fight COVID-19.

International students who have completed their coursework, but who have not yet received their completion letter or final transcript are normally authorized to work 20 hours per week. Under this new special measure, those students are now authorized to work full-time, IF they are working in an essential service or function (see Guide on Essential Services and Functions in Canada During the COVID-19 Pandemic).

International students are eligible to apply for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), as long as they meet the eligibility requirements. CERB will begin to accept applications starting April 6, 2020.

As stated on the CERB website, the benefit will be available to workers who:

  • Reside in Canada, who are at least 15 years old;
  • Have stopped working because of COVID-19 and have not voluntarily quit their job or are eligible for EI regular or sickness benefits;
  • Previously had income of at least $5,000 in 2019 or in the 12 months prior to the date of their application; and
  • Are now, or are expect to be, without employment or self-employment income for at least 14 consecutive days in the initial four-week period,and for subsequent benefit periods, expect to have no employment or self-employment income.

Questions and Answers

Please note, the recently announced $9B Covid-19 Federal funding package for post-secondary students and the $3.5M BC Government Emergency Fund for post-secondary students are only available to domestic students.

If you are experiencing an unexpected financial emergency or unmet financial need, you may be eligible for Covid-19 Emergency Financial Assistance from Capilano University. Please note, the amount of funding per student is limited, and there are a limited number of funds available overall. Please visit for details on how to apply.

Your medical coverage under the BC Medical Services Plan (BC MSP) typically expires once your study permit expires (check your MSP card to view the expiration date of your coverage). For those who are in the province with an expired work or study permit, a period of temporary MSP coverage may be provided until July 31. However, please note that you MUST contact BC MSP to request this temporary coverage. We highly recommend that you make arrangements to acquire alternative medical insurance if you do not have MSP coverage.

Now that we have moved to online delivery of courses and final examinations, you may choose to complete your studies from your home. Please note that you will still need to attend classes online and have the online capability to participate fully in your classes, do your assignments and complete any examinations. As the conditions surrounding COVID-19 change rapidly and regularly, we do not know when in-person classes will recommence. Please note that if you choose to leave, you will need a valid study permit and Visa (or eTA), issued before March 18th, 2020 to return to Canada. There may also be additional travel restrictions in place for your return to Canada.

It is important that you inform the Centre for International Experience if you are returning home and leaving Canada. This will enable us to be able to communicate with you more effectively if there are any changes to the delivery of your programs, and it will also help us know if you require support and services from the university here in Vancouver. Please let us know on inted@capilanou.ca stating your name, student number, program, and contact details at home.

You are required to have a valid study permit throughout the duration of your program. During academic sessions, you would still be required to comply with your study permit conditions.

If your study permit will expire soon and you need more time to complete your program, you should apply to extend your study permit via IRCC Online Services before the expiry date of your study permit.

If your study permit expires while your extension application is being processed, you will still be able to continue studying because you will have implied status. It is recommended that you apply 3 months before your study permit expires to allow for longer processing times.

Follow the step-by-step instructions outlined in Module 13 in your International Student Welcome Guide on e-Learn.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, many biometrics collection locations, including Service Canada Offices, have suspended collection. The biometric instruction letter cannot be amended, but 90-day extensions are being granted for those unable to book an appointment.

  • Unless you are exempt, all international travellers returning to B.C. are required by law to self-isolate for 14 days and complete a self-isolation plan.

For Study Abroad & Visiting Students

Current Outbound Students (Spring 2020)

Given the Federal government’s current instruction for Canadians abroad to make best efforts to “return to Canada via commercial means while they remain available,” we are encouraging you to take the necessary steps to return as soon as possible.

With that said, the decision is still yours to make. To ensure we can support you as best as possible, please continue to keep in touch with our study abroad team regarding your decision and arrival details by emailing studyabroad@capilanou.ca.
