Undergraduate Grading System

Final grades in all courses will be available at the end of each semester on WarriorWeb. Students can view and print copies of their final grades on WarriorWeb. The undergraduate student’s term grade in any subject shall be designated as one of the following letters:

A Excellent, 4 quality points per semester hour
B Good, 3 quality points per semester hour
C Fair, 2 quality points per semester hour
D Passing, 1 quality point per semester hour
F Failing, 0 quality points per semester hour
I Incomplete (under exceptional circumstances, see below)
IP In-progress (used for non-completed thesis coursework)
Q Withdrawal from course, no grade designated
W Withdrawal from university, no grade designated
WF Withdrawal failing from university (included in GPA)
*P Pass
*S Satisfactory
U Unsatisfactory
NG No credit

The lowest passing grade is a "D." Students should consider that some universities and colleges do not accept a "D" in transfer. A grade of "D" is not considered passing for developmental courses at A&M-Central Texas.

If a course is repeated at this institution, only the best grade in the course is counted in computing the GPA.

The grade "I" shall be recorded for a student only in case of extraordinary circumstances. This entry is used rarely when the instructor and his/her department chair have concurred that the incomplete entry is justified. A grade of "I" must be made up by the last day that course grades are due to the Registrar during the next long semester, and in all cases before registering for the next sequential course. Should this grade not be reported to the Registrar within the prescribed time limit, it automatically becomes an "F."

A student who drops a course on or before the census date receives no grade, and the course will not be listed on that student’s permanent record.

Grade Point Average

The grade point average (GPA) is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of semester hours included for quality points.
