In the Graduate School-New Brunswick, outstanding work is graded A,
and good work is graded B. Some programs require students to achieve
grades of A in at least half their courses to be accepted as serious
candidates for the doctorate. The grade of C is for satisfactory work.
The B+ and C+ grades are intermediate grades. The graduate faculty
accepts for graduate credit only a limited number of courses in which a
student earns a grade of C+ or C (see the paragraphs on academic
standing in the Degree Requirements chapter). A grade of F is assigned
to students who fail to earn credit in a course they complete and to
students who do not complete a course from which they have not
withdrawn officially. The Graduate School-New Brunswick does not assign
the grades of D or D+ in its courses.
In addition, the Graduate School-New Brunswick uses the following grade symbols:
be assigned at the discretion of an instructor who believes that an
extension of time is warranted for a student whose work is incomplete
at the end of the term. Incomplete work may be made up, and a change of
grade may be authorized by the instructor, within any period agreed to
by the instructor and the student. This makeup period may not extend
for more than two terms beyond the original course registration
(excluding Summer Session). Incompletes generated in a Summer Session
must be completed by the end of the following Summer Session. Programs
may establish shorter time limits. Students with two or more
incompletes are not permitted to register for additional courses after
one term until incompletes are completed.
Pass/No Credit. For certain specifically designated courses; applies to all students enrolled in those courses.
S/U-Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory. For 700-level courses of research carrying credit or in regular courses taken "not-for-credit" (N prefix).
W-(Withdrawal). Officially withdrew.
