Other Grades

What does Other Grades mean?

There are several grades other than A, B, C, D, or F that you may receive in a course. They are:

  • PR (progress, re-enroll) means you have made progress, but you must retake the course to demonstrate satisfactory skills.

  • I (Incomplete) is assigned to students who have completed most of the course requirements but need extra time to finish a final project or exam. Incomplete grades must be agreed upon by the student and instructor.

  • IF (Incomplete, failing) is assigned to students who requested an incomplete grade and did not finish the coursework within the designated time framesor completed the course but failed.

  • W (Withdrawal): If you would like to drop a course, but the add/drop period has passed:

    • Tell your instructor that you would like to withdraw from the class
    • Your instructor will give you a withdrawal form to sign
    • Your advisor will sign it as well and hand it to the Office of the Registrar

    **The grade "W" is assigned to students who either request a withdrawal before the eighth week of the semester (or eighth class meeting of a cycle), or request a withdrawal after the eighth week of the semester (or eighth class meeting of a cycle) and are passing the course at the time. Though a “W” grade does not affect your GPA, it may affect your financial aid. Always check with the Office of Financial Aid before withdrawing from a course.

  • WF (Withdrawal, failing) is assigned to students who request a withdrawal after the eighth week of the semester (or eighth class meeting of a cycle) and are failing the course at the time, or attend the course at least once and then stop attending the class. A “WF” grade counts as an “F” in you GPA.
