In the Graduate School–New Brunswick, outstanding work is graded A,
and good work is graded B. Some programs require students to achieve
a grade 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 school
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withdrawn officially.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:
(Incomplete). May 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 semester. Incomplete
work may be made up, and a change of grade may be authorized by the
instructor, within two semesters 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 semester until incomplete courses are
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.
