Other grades that may be assigned as follows:

P Non-Credit

AU Audit

Grades of A, B, and C are considered satisfactory. Students should be aware that many colleges and universities will not accept grades of “D” for transfer, and these courses should be repeated before attempting transfer.

A grade of “W” will be assigned to students who officially withdraw from the College or a particular course according to College policy. A grade of incomplete “I” will be assigned, at the discretion of the instructor, when all required work for a course is not completed by the end of the semester in which the course is taken. The instructor will develop an Incomplete Grade Contract that outlines all remaining course requirements to be completed. The student and instructor will sign the contract, which is submitted to Instructional Services.

A grade of “I” must be cleared by the first day of final exams of the following semester. If the grade of “I” is not cleared, a grade of “F” will be assigned. It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with the College to ensure the grade of “I” has been appropriately changed.

Students may access their grade report and a variety of other student information items online. Official transcripts must be requested through the Credentials Transfer Ordering Services using the link on the Registrar page of the College website. 

No credit will be awarded for courses in which the student is not registered and for which all tuition and fees are not paid. All discrepancies in student schedules and registration must be resolved during the term in which they occur or before the first day of class for the next term.
