|A ||Excellent: Q.P. (Quality Point) value 4 |

|B- ||Q.P. value 2.67 |
|C+ ||Q.P. value 2.33 |
|C ||Acceptable for college standards: Q.P. value 2.0 |
|C- ||Q.P. Value 1.67 |
|D+ ||Q.P. Value 1.33 |
|D ||Barely acceptable for degree credit: 1.0 |
|F ||Failure: Q.P. value: 0.0 |
|I ||Incomplete- a purely quantitative measure with no quality point involvement for student. This should be applied only when a passing grade is possible for student when missing data are completed. * |
|X ||Audit |
* Assigning an Incomplete: Incomplete grades may be awarded when a faculty member determines that circumstances warrant an extension of the typical deadline. The student will have made significant progress in the class, such that he or she may complete the final assignment(s) independently and within the time allotted.
Incomplete grades may be awarded in Banner, but faculty will be prompted to set the date of anticipated completion, and a default grade, should the work not be completed. If faculty do not enter this information, the default date will be six weeks from the original due date, and the default grade will be F.
|Pass/Fail ||A grade option carrying no quality points. Some courses are approved to use this grade for all students enrolled. In other courses, a student may secure permission to carry a course under this option. Faculty members are notified of any students exercising this option and grade them accordingly |
|P ||Passing grade in a pass/fail option course |
|FP ||Failing grade in a pass/fail course |
|RM or RP* |
|This grade is a qualitative grade available for use only in the following courses: |
CHE100, WRT098, WRT101, MAT098, PHY110/111, SPA161/162
This grade is used in courses “where the student must demonstrate a level of skill or competence in addition to the formal requirements of the course.”
*Assigning RM (Remediate) or RP (Repeat) grade
Rationale for a student who has been doing all the assigned course work but whose academic deficiencies would need more than the usual time to achieve competence, the RM or RP grade makes it possible for the student to continue improving competence without being penalized for prior weakness.
The instructor arranges with the student for:
- The type and extent of additional work required to meet the acceptable level of competence, and
- The time limits within which the work is to be
Remediate or Repeat
- RM: Requirement may include self-directed practice, review, or supplementary assignments administered by the same instructor or another instructor.
- RP: Requirement is repeating the course with the same or different instructor. This is no limit to the number of times a student may repeat the same course when assigned RP.
When level of competence has been achieved
- RM: Instructor submits a “Change of Grade Request Form” to change the RM to a C or better.
- RP: Original RP remains on record (same as W and grade is submitted by instructor of the repeated course for credit.)
|W ||Withdrawal without penalty. The student may withdraw without penalty through the deadline set by the Registrar. After that deadline, the instructor may give the student written permission to withdraw without penalty. |
|WF ||Withdrawal with penalty. This grade is normally given to the student who withdraws after the withdrawal deadline or fails to withdraw officially. |
|NA ||Never attended grades are submitted by the faculty member during the third week of classes (the census date). Faculty should review their course rosters during the third week of classes, to provide an accurate report of course enrollment. NOTE: Never attended should not be used in lieu of a W. Students must initiate a W. |
|SA ||Stopped attending grades may be submitted during midterm and final grading periods. This grade should have a date of last attendance with it. It will become a W on the student record. Note: Stopped attending should not be used in lieu of a W. Students must initiate a W. |
