Grades

 

Effective Fall Semester 2005-06, UW-RF will change to a plus and minus grading scheme.

Student achievement at UW-RF is evaluated in letter symbols, each of which carries a value in honor points per credit hour.

A = Excellent (4 honor points per credit hour)

A- = Excellent (3.667 honor points per credit hour)

B+ = Good (3.333 honor points per credit hour)

B = Good (3 honor points per credit hour)

B- = Good (2.667 honor points per credit hour )

C+ = Average (2.333 honor points per credit hour)

C = Average (2 honor points per credit hour)

C- = Average (1.667 honor points per credit hour)

D+ = Below Average (1.333 honor points per credit hour)

D = Below Average (1 honor points per credit hour)

F = Failure (0 honor points per credit hour)

I = Incomplete (Not Computed in GPA-will need a final letter grade)

S = Satisfactory (Not Computed in GPA)

U = Unsatisfactory (Computed in GPA as a failing grade)

W = Signifies a Late Drop (Not computed in GPA)

SP = Satisfactory Progress (Not Computed in GPA-will need a final letter grade)

IP = In-Progress (Not counted as credits attempted-will need a final letter grade)

XF = Failure due to non attendance -  (Computed in GPA as a failing grade)

NR = Not Reported (Not counted as credits attempted-will need a final letter grade) (Faculty Senate Motion approved 2007)

An Incomplete (grade of "I") is reported only when students are prevented from completing the required course work through no fault of their own. It is the responsibility of the student to see that all of the work is completed. Incompletes are not counted in computing a student's cumulative GPA. An incomplete must be removed from the record during the next two terms (excluding J-Term and Summer Session) or a grade designated by the instructor at the time the Incomplete is issued will automatically be awarded. Otherwise a grade of "F" will be recorded.

Grades of "U" or "S" are earned when a course is taken Pass/Fail.

Grades of "SP" are granted when the course is still in progress at the time that grades are due, such as in the case of an internship or student teaching.

Grade Reports

Grade Reports are only available for the previous term. To have a grade report sent to you please fill out the Grade Request Formdocument.

As of Fall 2003-04 term you can view your grades through eSIS. You can locate grades by clicking the "Grades" link in your Student Center.

Grade Point Average

The cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits attempted. In the case of repeated courses the record of both the original and repeated course will be retained on the student's transcript, but for purposes of determining the student's GPA, only credits and grade points earned in the last retake of the course will be used.

Credits and grades transferred from other accredited institutions are not used in the computation of the UW-RF grade point average.

To remain in "good standing" the student's cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above.
