    Grades are posted online to the student’s Ask Wally account each semester. An interim advisory report is posted for all new students midway through the fall semester. The quality of a student’s work is designated by the following grades: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D, F, Incomplete, and Condition. Courses dropped by the student after the last official course drop date will receive a “W.” The deadline for reporting grade changes is four weeks following the issuance of the grade.

    A grade change beyond this time period will require a written request to be filed with the Dean of the College. The grades of A through D are passing grades and entitle a student to credit in that course. The grade of Satisfactory is used in an interim fashion, when the course continues into the next term, to indicate satisfactory progress. Grades of Incomplete and Condition are not passing but may be made so by procedures described below. No credit is given for F work; the student must repeat the course with a passing grade to receive credit.

    The grade of Condition (CON) indicates that the student has less than a passing grade; it may be removed by any method prescribed by the instructor. The highest grade that may be assigned following the removal of a Condition is “D.” The grade of CON is computed as an “F” in the GPA until replaced by a “D.”

    The grade of Incomplete (INC) indicates that the student has not met all course requirements. It may be removed by completing the work, and the grade then assigned may be any grade. The grade of INC is not computed in the GPA except for calculating the Dean’s List where it carries the weight of a “C.” (See Dean’s List).

    The grades of Condition and Incomplete, if not removed by 4:00 PM on the first Monday of classes after Midsemester following the semester for which they were assigned, will be converted to “F” on the student’s transcript. There will be no modification of the grade of “F” unless approved by petition through the Curriculum Appeals Committee and Dean of the College. Faculty or the Dean of Students (after consultation with the instructor, if possible) may set any due date that does not extend beyond 4:00 PM on the first Monday of classes after Mid-semester of the following semester.

    Official withdrawal from the College through the Dean of Students results in the grade of WD.
