Major Revision of Existing Policy
Minor/Technical Revision of Existing Policy
Reaffirmation of Existing Policy
I. OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE
The objective of this policy is to codify the official grading structure of the University of North Florida.
II. STATEMENT OF POLICY
F, FA, and WF
0 (calculated in GPA)
NR, X, I, P, W, WP, WM, WS, and WD 0.0 (not calculated in GPA)
X - Audit
Students must indicate at the time of registration that they wish to audit a course rather than register for credit. Any change from credit to audit or vice-versa must be made before the close of add/drop. Fees for audit classes are the same as those for credit and are non-refundable. Petitioning to move from audit to credit or vice-versa is not permitted under normal conditions. Extraordinary circumstances must be documented. Audited courses do not count toward financial aid.
I - Incomplete
At the instructor’s discretion, students who have not completed required work in a course by the end of the semester may be assigned a grade of “I.” In order for an “I” to be assigned, the student must have completed a substantial portion (at least a majority) of the course with a passing grade. The “I” is not computed in the grade point average. The time limit for removing the “I” is set by the instructor of the course. This time limit may not exceed one calendar year or graduation, whichever comes first. The time limit applies whether the student is in residence or not. To extend an incomplete beyond one year, the student must petition for a waiver of University policy.
An “I” will be changed to a final evaluative grade (one that is used in calculating GPAs) at the time the student completes the required work. Students may not register for courses in which incomplete grades have been received. Any “I” grade not removed by the end of the time limit will be changed to a final grade to be determined by the instructor. This grade will be used to calculate the student’s GPA. If no final grade is issued, the “I” will change to an “F” and will be calculated in the GPA. Veterans and other eligible students should contact One-Stop Student Services concerning the effect of incomplete or failing grades upon certification.
NR - No Record
“NR” is assigned when grades for an entire class or portion thereof are not submitted by the processing deadline. Enrollment Services Processing will send a list of “NR” grades to the respective department chairpersons, who will be responsible for communicating with faculty members about removing the “NR” grade. The “NR” may remain on the record for up to one year but cannot remain on the student’s transcript beyond graduation.
P - Passing
A "P" indicates a passing grade for the employment experience in the Cooperative Education Program and, at the discretion of the college and departments, for thesis, dissertation, independent study, practicum, and/or internship courses. Passing grades are not calculated in the GPA.
W - Withdrawn
Indicates a student has withdrawn officially from a course before the established deadline.
WP - Withdrawn Passing
Indicates a student has successfully petitioned to withdraw from a course after the official deadline and was making satisfactory progress at the time.
WF - Withdrawn Failing
Indicates a student has successfully petitioned to withdraw from a course after the official deadline and was not making satisfactory progress at the time.
WM - Withdrawn Medical
Indicates a student has successfully petitioned to withdraw from courses due to an incapacitating illness.
WS - Withdrawn Service
Indicates a student has successfully withdrawn from courses due to being called for military duty during the semester.
WD - Withdrawn Deceased
Indicates a student has been withdrawn from classes due to death.
Indicates a student has received a Punitive or Unforgivable F due to academic misconduct. This grade cannot be forgiven through a grade or term forgiveness.
Courses completed with grades of “D” may be applied toward upper-level graduation requirements, i.e., 60 credit hours. However, a course completed with a “D” grade normally will not be applicable toward major requirements. See college sections for further information.
