End of Course/Term/Semester
The “N” grade:
If a faculty member determines that a student has failed the course, the faculty member assigns either a grade of “N” or “F” based upon the student’s performance AFTER the official course drop date. If the student “participates” in the class AFTER the official course drop date, the faculty member assigns the final grade of “F”. “Participation” for this purpose only is defined as:
- Submits or completes an assignment after the official course drop date, or
- Attends at least one (1) class after the official course drop date
- If a student has not demonstrated one of the above and the instructor determines that the student has failed the course, the student will be assigned the grade of “N” by the faculty member. In such a case, the student’s official transcript and academic record will reflect the “N” grade as an “F”.
- If you need more information on these new grades, please contact Andy Tubbs in the ACCESS Center, your instructional division office.
