Checking Your Final Grades

Instructors calculate final grades for courses at the end of each term, they then submit grades to their Chair for review and approval. Once approved, grades are sent to the Registrar’s Office to be posted on ACORN. You can log in to ACORN to view your final grades by following the steps below:

  1. Login to ACORN using your UTORid and password.
  2. Click on "Academic History" under the Academics menu.
  3. View your detailed academic history and scroll to the bottom to view your most recent grades, and academic standing.

Check your academic standing under Complete Academic History on ACORN to know whether you are in good standing, on probation, or suspension. Your academic standing will be assessed once you have attempted at least three credits. Understanding your academic performance is important, as it may directly impact whether you are eligible to take courses, and/or if there is a restriction or limit on how many you are eligible to take.

U of T Grading Scheme

Grade Point Averages (GPA)

The average of the courses you took in your most recent semester (Fall, Winter, or Summer) is your sessional GPA. Your cumulative GPA is the average of all the courses you have passed or failed at UTSC.

Your sessional GPA is an indication of your academic performance in any given session that you take classes. It's essential that you use this evaluation to reflect on whether you've made good academic decisions. Some questions you may want to ask are:

  • Are you in the right program?
  • Did you take too many courses?
  • Are you working or volunteering too many hours a week?
  • Do you need to work on your study habits?

If you need to make some improvements, utilize student support services on campus to help you meet your short-term and long-term goals. If you're pleased with your grades, well done! Make it a habit to check your final grades at the end of each semester under Complete Academic History on ACORN.

The grading scale is listed below:
