Grades

Grades from all previous semesters are available online at WebAdvisor.

Academic grades are posted to the student's transcript at the end of each semester. College faculty are responsible for submitting final grades for all enrolled students within 48 hours after the end of the semester.

The grades shown here are with their value in honor points per semester hour of credit.

Incomplete Work

A student performing satisfactorily in a course, as determined by the instructor, may be granted an Incomplete (“I”) at the semester’s conclusion if the majority of the coursework has been completed with a passing grade, but some part of the coursework remains unfinished.

For a student to receive an "I", the instructor will specify in writing the unfinished coursework that must be completed and the deadline for completion, which shall be no later than the end of the following semester. Exceptions to the timeline may be made with the written approval of the respective associate dean.

For an "I" to be changed to a final course grade, a student must complete the agreed upon coursework by the date specified in writing by the instructor. Upon completion of unfinished work by the student, the instructor initiates a grade change to be entered on the student’s record. If no grade change is initiated, the "I" becomes an “E” (or 0.0, a failing grade) on the student’s record.

A student performing unsatisfactorily in a course, as determined by the instructor, is ineligible for an Incomplete.
