Grading Practices

Other Designated Grades

P Pass. This is a legitimate grade in a Pass/Fail course. (Pass/Fail course grades are not calculated into the GPA.)

F Failure (no grade points; F=0). No credit will be given except by successfully repeating the failed course at the University. If such repetition is successful, the failure remains on the student’s permanent record but is not calculated into the GPA.

W Withdrew. After the second week of classes up to the end of the sixth week. (Note: Withdrawal during the first two weeks of a fall or spring semester course is not registered on the student’s transcript.)

WP Withdrew Passing. After the sixth week of classes and up to the eleventh week the grade of ‘WP’ is assigned on the student’s permanent record upon withdrawal from a course, provided the student was passing the course at the time of withdrawal.

WF Withdrew Failing. This grade is assigned when the student is failing the course at the time of withdrawal. See note under “WP.” WP/WF grades are not computed into the GPA.

Note: A student may withdraw from a course between the seventh and eleventh week with a WP or WF only because of severe extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control and if approval is granted by the Vice Provost. (The required form and procedures are available in the Office of the Registrar). No course withdrawals are permitted after the end of the eleventh week in a semester.

INC Incomplete. A temporary delay of the assignment of a grade when failure to complete the course has been caused by extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control. Normally occurs after the end of the eleventh week of the semester, and only when the majority of the course work has been completed. (The required form and procedures are available in the Office of the Registrar.)
