A student’s work in any course will be evaluated in accordance with the following system of letter grades:

A, B, C, D, F, P, NC, W, AU, I, IP, Z

In addition to the use of straight A, B, C and D letter grades, faculty members will have the option of using +/- additions for further differentiation of achievement. If the grade of A+ is assigned, it does not provide for assignment of a higher value on the four point scale used to calculate grade point average. A 4.0 remains the highest assigned value.

Real Time Web Grading

Grades are posted to the student record at the time of grade entry.

Posting Dates to Enter Grades

Instructors can begin entering grades for courses one calendar week prior to the official last day of the course and continue through the Thursday of the week following the end of the term. Each course has its own time period when grades may be posted. If a student is registered for four courses, it is possible that each one could have a different date when posting could begin however they would all have the same ending date for posting.

The University policy on grading can be found at
