Grades

Equating letter grades earned at Georgia College to the following numerical code computes the grade-point average:

A 4 points (Excellent)
B 3 points (Good)
C 2 points (Satisfactory)
D 1 point (Passing)
F 0 points (Failing)
WF 0 points (Withdrew failing)

 

The following symbols are used in the cases indicated, but they are not included in the determination of the grade-point average.

I

Indicates that a student was doing satisfactory work, but for non-academic reasons beyond the student’s control was unable to meet the full requirements of the course. An I grade must be satisfactorily removed during the next semester of enrollment or by the end of one calendar year if not enrolled, whichever comes first, or the symbol I will be changed to the grade of F.

 

Note: registering in a subsequent semester for a course in which an I has been received will not remove the incomplete but will result in the grade of F.

W

Indicates that a student was permitted to withdraw from the course without academic penalty.

S

Indicates that credit has been given for completion of degree requirements other than academic course work. This symbol is used for thesis hours, student teaching, clinical practicum, internship, wellness activity courses, academic workshops and proficiency requirements in graduate programs.

U

Indicates unsatisfactory performance in an attempt to complete degree requirements other than academic course work. This symbol is used for thesis hours, student teaching, clinical practicum, internship, wellness activity courses, academic workshops and proficiency requirements in graduate programs.

V

Indicates that a student was given permission to audit. Students may not transfer from audit to credit status or vice versa after the last date to add a course. Students may register on a credit basis in a later term.

K

Indicates that a student was given credit for the course via a credit-by-examination program approved by the faculty, (CLEP, AP, Proficiency, etc.).

IP

Indicates that work is in progress. (Used in thesis, practicums and internships.)

NR

Indicates that the instructor did not report the grade for the course. An NR grade must be removed during the next semester of enrollment or by the end of one calendar year if not enrolled, whichever comes first, or the symbol NR will be changed to the grade of F.
