Grades and Grading
The work of all undergraduate students is graded and reported at the end of each semester. Students may access their semester grades on Self Service Banner within 48 hours of the end of the examination period for that semester.
Three systems are in use for grading and reporting students' work:
Letter Grades and Points
Note: Although D- is a passing grade, a minimum grade of C- is required in General Education courses and, in many programs, courses required by the major.
|CR||Equivalent to A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, or C-|
|CD||Equivalent to D+, D or D-|
|NC||Equivalent to F|
Note: In the Credit/No Credit system, no grade points are assigned, but a limited number of credits in courses in which students earn the CR or CD1 designation counts toward the total credit hours completed. See Credit/No Credit Courses.
The CD grade was implemented in Spring 2020.
