Grading Systems
(Items with red highlighting may only be entered by the Registrar's Office.)

ABS ABSENT FROM FINAL Students who for valid reasons do not appear on the final exam are given ABS when the student has earned an average term grade of  50% or better for work already completed. Discontinued; replaced with INC. (Effective Fall 2007)
INC INCOMPLETE TERM WORK

Students who for valid reason do not complete the work assigned (including final exams, papers etc.) when the students has earned an average term grade of 50% or better and in your view has a reasonable chance to pass the course. INC requires % of work completed, grade earned to date, and the work to be completed, i.e; 85%, B, missed final.

AUD AUDITOR The student must have requested the status of auditor at the start of the semester.   If a student in your course officially applied for auditor's status, a grade of " AUD " will appear in the grade column. This grade cannot be assigned by the Instructor.   
P SATISFACTORY COMPLETION

The grade of P can be used for undergraduate students in the Weissman School of Arts & Sciences who have been approved for pass/fail option by the third week of classes or noncredit or tutorial courses (e.g. ENG 0132, CSTM 0130). Please refer to Undergraduate Guide to Academic Policies and Procedure in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
It can also be used in the graduate thesis or research course. A NC grade will be in place for research courses when a thesis has not been completed but progress has been made.
Graduate students who apply for the Pass (P)/No Credit (NC) option will receive a grade of P if the course is successfully completed and NC if it is not.

W OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL Without penalty. If a student in your course OFFICIALLY withdrew by the due date, a grade of  " W " will appear in the grade column.
WA ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL Student did not comply with immunization requirements.  
THE STUDENT MUST COMPLY WITH IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS or the "WA" GRADE WILL BE PERMANENT - NO GRADE CHANGES WILL BE ALLOWED
. Faculty must add a proposed grade to the comments field of Webgrade.
WN

NEVER ATTENDED (ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL)

WN should be given if the student has never attended a class and there is no documented evidence of the student's participation in a course. The establishment of a WN grade provides necessary information concerning attendance; this is a requirement of Federal Title IV regulations for the disbursement of financial aid to students.  A WN given prior to a student applying for a W takes precedence and counts as an F. (Grade effective fall 2008, Spring 2009 and Summer 2009 only.)
WN cannot be assigned during final grade roster submission and therefore the option is not available in WebGrade. Contact the Registrar's Office if you have a question.

 *WN

Effective Fall 2009: Non-Punitive (not calculated GPA)

*WN (means the same as the WN-never attended) entered by the Registrar upon receipt from the faculty that a WN has been assigned; Effective fall ’09 the WN grade is no longer punitive. *WN grades are not allowed to be submitted via WebGrade.
WU

UNOFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL DROPPED BY INSTRUCTOR FOR EXCESSIVE ABSENT

Assigned by the faculty at any time before taking the final exam. Equivalent to "F". (Instructors must submit the last date of attendance)

WU should be given if the student has attended at least one class or if there is documented evidence of the student's participation in a course.  A WU must be given to freshmen and sophomores for absence in excess of twice the number of weekly hours the class meets (i.e., if the class meets twice a week the student may be absent no more than four times) and may be given to juniors and seniors for excessive absences.  A WU given prior to a student applying for a W takes precedence and counts as an F.  A WU may not be used if a student has taken the final examination. Change: previously, students who had never attended (as well as those with excessive absences) would have been given the WU grade; now they will receive WN. (New change effective fall 2008)

WF DROPPED BY INSTRUCTOR FOR POOR SCHOLARSHIP The grade of WF may be assigned by the instructor, if a pre-marked " W " does not appear in the grade column. Equivalent to " F ". (Instructors must submit the last date of attendance) Discontinued.(Effective Fall 2007)
R UNSATISFACTORY WORK FOR REMEDIAL COURSE R can be assigned as a final grade for remedial noncredit courses or tutorial courses only (e.g. ENG 0132, CSTM 0130) in lieu of  "F" or " INC ".
PEN

Academic Integrity (Pending)

The PEN grade is the correct grade for a student whose grade is under review because of possible infractions of the college's academic integrity policy. The ultimate letter grade will be assigned by the instructor, but students are entitled to due process, so if the faculty member has not yet resolved the issue with the student, the proper grade until such resolution is PEN.

Y  

An intermediate grade assigned after the first of a two semester, or the first two of a three-semester, Honors sequence to signify work in progress. (Honors courses numbered 6001, 6002, 6003). The Y grade is not included in calculating the grade point average. Each Y grade is replaced by an appropriate letter grade when the sequence has been completed.

Z
No grade submitted by the instructor (assigned by the Registrar)

Grades must be submitted for all students. Z is assigned only by the Registrar.   Change: previously, students with unresolved academic integrity issues were assigned the grade of Z. Discontinued.(Effective Fall 2008)

 

Note: Grade sheet cannot be processed with blank grades.

Students not listed on roster: Students not appearing on the class roster must be referred to the Office of the Registrar. Until the student is actually registered, grade(s) cannot be assigned.
