Grades and Records

Students are graded in each course at the end of each semester as follows:

A Outstanding.

C Satisfactory. Only a limited number of courses with a grade of C are accepted for graduate credit; see Scholastic Standing.
Satisfactory or unsatisfactory. Used for courses with the credit prefix N.
PA/NC Pass or no credit. Assigned upon completion of the work for specific courses.
Withdrawn without evaluation. Used when a student officially drops a course or withdraws during the first eight weeks of a semester.
IN Incomplete. When a portion of coursework is incomplete and the instructor is unable to judge a student's course performance, the instructor may elect to assign a grade of IN. An incomplete remains on a student's record until course requirements are completed and the instructor assigns an appropriate letter grade. When a grade of IN is assigned, coursework must be completed within one year if the incomplete is to be converted to a grade. If unconverted, an incomplete becomes part of a student's permanent record.
T Temporary. An instructor may assign a T followed by a grade when a portion of coursework is incomplete and the instructor is able to make a tentative judgment of a student's course performance on the basis of the portion completed. The grade assigned in conjunction with the T grade becomes the final grade, unless a better grade is reported as a result of the completion of coursework within the time allowed by the instructor. That time cannot extend beyond May 1 for fall grades or December 1 for spring and summer grades. The symbol T has no meaning except when preceding a regular grade. The TZ grade is assigned only when a student is unable to finish his or her work or the instructor cannot submit a grade due to a verifiable emergency situation. The student and faculty member are urged to reach an agreement as soon as possible as to how the course should be completed. The TZ will have no immediate effect on a student's GPA; however, if the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the TZ will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.
