Grading

Grades are based on daily work, classroom projects, and examinations. In all courses, except those designated as credit/no credit or pass/fail, scholarship is ranked as follows: A, exceptional; B, superior; C, average; D, poor; F, failure; I, incomplete; W, withdrawal; and FN, failure, nonattending. Grade type (A-F versus credit/no credit or pass/fail) cannot change unless an official course change has been approved by the appropriate council prior to the course being offered for a particular semester. Unit values for a course cannot be changed from the published values unless an official course change has been approved by the appropriate council prior to the semester the course is taken. For each unit in which the student is enrolled, points are awarded according to the grade earned as follows:
