When and where to see grades
Your grades should be available 4 business days after the end of the term. If your grades are not available online by then, check with your instructor or academic advisor.
For the University's complete policy related to grading see the University's Grading and Transcripts policy.
A-F grade points and definitions
You will take most courses on an A-F grade basis. Courses graded A-F follow the scale below.
|A+||4.333||Assigned only in the Law School|
|A||4.000||Achievement that is outstanding relative to the level necessary to meet course requirements|
|B||3.000||Achievement that is significantly above the level necessary to meet course requirements|
|C||2.000||Achievement that meets the course requirements in every respect|
|D||1.000||Achievement that is worthy of credit even though it fails to meet fully the course requirements|
|F||0.000||Represents failure (or no credit) and signifies that the work was either (1) completed but at a level of achievement that is not worthy of credit or (2) was not completed and there was no agreement between the instructor and the student that the student would be awarded an I (see also I)|
S/N grade definitions
S/N means "satisfactory" or "non-satisfactory." This is the University's scale for classes you take "pass/fail."
|S||Not calculated||Achievement that is satisfactory, which is equivalent to a C or better for undergraduate students. If allowed by the college or program, credits will count toward the student's degree program. Graduate and professional programs may establish higher standards for earning a grade of S.|
|N||Not calculated||Same as "F" in A-F: Represents failure (or no credit) and signifies that the work was either (1) completed but at a level of achievement that is not worthy of credit or (2) was not completed and there was no agreement between the instructor and the student that the student would be awarded an I (see also I)|
Other grading symbols
Depending on your circumstances, you may also receive grading symbols other than what is listed above. Some professional programs have additional grade notations. See the transcript key to learn what the symbols mean.
