Course Final Grading Scale (no “D” grade for graduate courses)

*** New Final Grading Scale (plus/minus grades)

• ECU is moving to a Plus/Minus Grading Scale for all Final grades given in a course.

• The Instructor continues to determine what the Grading Scale for the course is, with the addition of A-, B+, B-, C+, C-, and for undergraduate courses D+, D-.

• When quality points or GPA is computed, the difference will be recognized as below.

• Note that all programs in CHE have indicated that students must have a GPA of C (2.0) where it has been specified as a requirement for declaring the major, obtaining an internship or additional requirements. A ‘C-‘ (1.7) will not be accepted under the new Grading Scale.

Grade Quality Points

A = 4.0
A- = 3.7
B+ = 3.3
B = 3.0
B- = 2.7
C+ = 2.3
C = 2.0
C- = 1.7
D+ = 1.3
D = 1.0
D- = 0.7
F = 0

Incomplete Grades

Reasons to Give an Incomplete:
A grade of Incomplete (I) indicates that the completion of some part of the work for the course has been deferred. The grade of I is assigned at the discretion of the instructor when a student who is otherwise passing has not, due to circumstances beyond his/her control, completed all the work in the course. The grade of I should not be recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the work of the course. An I should not be given if the faculty member is uncertain that the student attended the course; in that case the grade of F should be assigned.

A grade of I must be removed within the time period specified in the appropriate catalog or it automatically becomes a grade of F. The instructor will set a time for the removal of the I, in no case later than three weeks prior to the end of the semester. Instructors must submit the proper change of grade form to the registrar's office at least two weeks prior to the end of the semester. If the student does not return to school, the I must be removed within one year or it automatically becomes an F. An I may not be removed by repeating the course. If a student enrolls in a course in which he or she has an I, the I will automatically become an F.

It is the student's responsibility to request arrangements for completion of the work and to request that the instructor remove the I grade. It is the responsibility of the faculty member to complete and return the change of grade form in a timely fashion.

In the event that the instructor is unavailable or cannot be contacted the unit administrator or designee will use available records including the syllabus on record to determine the appropriate grade change and submit it to the University Registrar.

Certain sequence courses, such as thesis research, may require the completion of the entire sequence before any grade other than I may be given for the earlier component. No student will be allowed to graduate with an Incomplete on his or her record. (FS Resolution #10-08, February 2010)

Removal of Incompletes
A grade of I must be removed during the next semester (not counting summer session) in which the student is enrolled in the university or it automatically becomes an F. The instructor will set a time for the removal of the incomplete, in no case later than three weeks prior to the end of the semester. Instructors must submit the proper removal of incomplete form to the Office of the Registrar at least two weeks prior to the end of the semester. If the student does not return to school, the I must be removed within one year, or it automatically becomes an F. An incomplete may not be removed by repeating the course. If a student enrolls in a course in which he or she has an incomplete, the I will automatically become an F. No student will be allowed to graduate with an incomplete on his or her record.
