Grading System

The policies below apply only to College students. Students taking courses in other schools within the University will be graded according to the policy of those schools.

Letter grades ranging from A+ to F (with no D-) are used to report the standing of a student upon the completion of each course. Read more >>

Additional Grade Types

P (Pass)

The pass awarded in a pass/fail course is not used in the computation of the grade point average, but does confer credit. Read more >>

W

 

This notation indicates an approved withdrawal from a course. The following grade designations are not permanent, i.e., students will not be graduated until these grades have been resolved:

S and U

(Satisfactory and Unsatisfactory Performance): S and U are used to indicate the level of performance after the first semester in a two-semester course for which the grade is given after the second semester. They are replaced by a final course grade after the second semester is completed.

GR

This notation indicates that a student never attended class or never formally dropped the class, but his or her name still appears on the roster. Students with a GR must clarify their status with the instructor and the College Office. A student may not graduate with a GR on the transcript.

NR

This notation indicates that no grades have been submitted for a particular course. Students with a NR must clarify their status with the instructor and the College Office. A student may not graduate with a GR on the transcript.

I

(Incomplete):  A report of "I" or "II" indicates that a student's work in a course is incomplete with the instructor's permission. Students with an "I" or "II" must clarify their status with the instructor and the College Office. A student may not graduate with an "I" or "II" on the transcript. Read more >>
