  1. Grades Assigned
    Instructors are responsible for assigning a letter grade to reflect the quality of performance in each course. Quality points are assigned as follows:

    Grade

    Interpretation

    Quality Points

    A Excellent 4
    B Good 3
    C Average 2
    D Poor 1
    F Failure 0
    I Incomplete None
    P Pass None
    R Reenroll None
    S Satisfactory None
    U Unsatisfactory None
    W Withdrawal None
    X Audit None

    The grades of A, B, C, D, P, and S are passing grades. Grades of F and U are failing grades. R and I are interim grades. Grades of W and X are final grades carrying no credit.

    Challenges to grade reports should be made in writing directly to the appropriate instructor no later than ten (10) calendar days after the first day of class of the next semester. If the student is unable to contact the instructor directly, the appropriate division Dean should be notified in writing.

  2. Grades Applicable to All Courses

    I = Incomplete
    - No credit.

    No grade point credit. The “I” grade is to be used only for verifiable unavoidable reasons that a student is unable to complete a course within the normal course time. To be eligible to receive an “I’ grade, the students must (1) have satisfactorily completed more than 50% of the course requirements and (2) must request the faculty member to assign the “I” grade and indicate why it is warranted. The faculty member has the discretion to decide whether the “I” grade will be awarded. Since the “incomplete” extends enrollment in the course, requirements for satisfactory completion shall be established through consultation between the faculty member and the student. In assigning the “I” grade, the faculty member must complete documentation that (1) states the reason for assigning the grade; (2) specifies the work to be completed and indicates the percentage in relation to the total work of the course; (3) specifies the date by which the work must be completed; and (4) identifies the default grade (B, C, D, F, P, R, or U) based upon course work already completed. Completion dates may not be set beyond the subsequent semester (to include summer term) without written approval of the Chief Academic Officer of the campus. The student will be provided a copy of the documentation. A grade of “F” will be assigned at the end of the subsequent semester unless the “I” grade is changed by the faculty member through the normal grade change processes. An “I” grade will be changed to a “W” only under documented mitigating circumstances which must be approved by the Chief Academic Officer of the campus.

    W = Withdrawal - No credit.

    A grade of “W” is awarded to students who withdraw or are withdrawn from a course after the add/drop period but prior to the completion of 60% of the session. After that time, the student will receive a grade of “F” unless mitigating circumstances are documented in the student’s academic file.

    X = Audit - No credit.

    Students desiring to attend a course without taking the examination or receiving credit for the course may do so by registering to audit through the usual registration process and paying the normal tuition. Permission of the division dean or another appropriate academic administrator is required to audit a course.

    Audited courses carry no credit and do not count as part of the student’s course load. Students desiring to change status in a course from audit to credit or from credit to audit must do so within the add/drop period for the course.

    Students who desire to earn credit for a previously audited course must re-enroll in the course for credit and pay normal tuition to earn a grade other than “X.” Advance standing credit should not be awarded for a previously audited course.

  3. Grades for Courses with Academic Credit/No Grade Point Credit

    R = Re-Enroll –
    No grade point credit.The “R” grade may be used as a grade option, in developmental and ESL courses only, to indicate satisfactory progress toward meeting course objectives. In order to complete course objectives, students receiving an “R” grade must re-enroll in the course and pay the specified tuition. 

    Grades for Developmental Courses

S = Satisfactory - No grade point credit; applies to developmental courses, noncredit courses, and specialized courses and seminars at the discretion of the College.

U = Unsatisfactory -
No grade point credit; applies to developmental courses, noncredit courses, and specialized courses and seminars at the discretion of the College.

4.     Academic Renewal Policy

Students, who return to the college after a separation of five (5) years, or more, may petition for academic renewal. The request must be in writing and submitted to the Admissions and Records Office.

If a student is determined to be eligible for academic renewal, D and F grades earned prior to reenrollment will be deleted from the cumulative and curriculum grade point average (G.P.A.), subject to the following conditions:

a. Prior to petitioning for academic renewal the student must demonstrate a renewed academic interest and effort by earning at least a 2.5 G.P.A. in the first twelve (12) semester hours completed after reenrollment.

b. All grades received at the College will be a part of the student’s official transcript.

c. Students will receive degree credit only for courses in which grades of C or better were earned prior to academic renewal, providing that such courses meet current curriculum requirements.

d. Total hours for graduation will be based on all course work taken at the College after readmission, as well as former course work for which a grade of C or better was earned, and credits transferred from other colleges or universities.

e. The academic renewal policy may be used only once and cannot be revoked once processed.

5.    Grade Report Challenge

Challenges to grade reports should be made in writing directly to the appropriate instructor no later than ten (10) calendar days after the first day of class of the next semester. If the student is unable to contact the instructor directly, the appropriate division dean should be notified in writing.
