  • The grade of "F" indicates that a student completed a course but earned a grade of 59 or below.
  • The grade of "I" indicates a student was issued an Incomplete. The missing work must be completed and the instructor’s grade correction submitted to change the "I" to a letter grade of "A", "B", "C", or "D" before mid-term of the following semester or it will be automatically converted to a grade of "F".
  • The grade of "W" indicates that a student officially withdrew from classes during the first 60% of any academic term following the drop/add period. This grade is not included in the calculation of grade point averages but may impact financial aid eligibility.
  • The grade of "WF" indicates that a student stopped attending without withdrawing and was not awarded a hardship withdrawal. The grade of "WF" will be calculated as an "F" in the GPA. This grade may affect financial aid eligibility.
