NR  No Report: The grade was not received in time for processing. An "NR" grade is replaced upon receipt of an official grade change form. An "NR" not resolved by the university's published deadline is automatically converted to an "F"

I – Incomplete: Instructor granted extension of the grading period given for extenuating circumstances. “I” is replaced by a letter grade upon receipt of official grade change form. An “I” not resolved by the university’s deadline is automatically converted to an “F”.

NG – Not Graded: This is only used for laboratory sections where the lab grade is factored into the lecture portion of the course. A grade of “NG” is not associated with any academic credit and does not factor into the cumulative GPA.

*A grade of “B-”, “C+”, or “C” is in and of itself a passing grade. However a “B-”, “C+”, or “C” grade is below the required overall grade point average of 3.0. If “B-”, “C+”, and “C” grades total an amount to bring the student’s GPA to below 3.0, then this is not satisfactory performance based on professional expectations.
** Not calculated in the overall GPA.
