Students receive an individual grade for each registered class. Class grading scales
are either letter grades or pass/fail depending on the course. Department Chair/
Coordinators determine the grading scale for each class. The two grading scales are
as follows:
In some programs, grades below a stated percent constitute unsatisfactory
performance. Students should see the Department Chair/Coordinator or their
instructor for further clarification.

C. Incomplete Grade

  1. An “I” (Incomplete) shall be given as a grade for a class at the discretion of the
    instructor and Department Chair/Coordinator when it is expected that the student
    can complete all required coursework within a specified time period.
  2. An “I” contract is completed between the instructor and student to clarify
    expectations and time frame to complete the coursework for a passing grade.
  3. It is the responsibility of the instructor or Department Chair/Coordinator to provide
    grade change information to the Registration & Records Office once all
    coursework has been completed by the student.
  4. All “I” grades will be converted to a grade of “U” or “F” if coursework is not
    satisfactorily completed according to the terms of the contract.
