University regulations require that any student who fails to complete a
course without officially dropping it shall receive a grade of "F".
Enter the last date of attendance in the "Comments" column for any
student who did not complete your course.
Standard Semester Grades: Students are graded at
the end of each course, in accordance with the grades and symbols
authorized by the University Faculty Senate, as follows:
- A= Outstanding
- D=Poor (not used in graduate courses)
- S=Satisfactory (Graduate Research or "N" credit)
- U=Unsatisfactory (Graduate Research or "N" credit)
- W=ASSIGNED BY REGISTRAR to students who officially withdraw from a course
- PA/NC=Used for students who opt for Pass/No Credit grades
Other Grade Symbols:
- "TB+, TB, TC+, TC, TD, TF and TZ" grades: These grades are used for
all incomplete and temporary grades in undergraduate courses and are
also used in some graduate courses (for details, see below). Temporary
grades are given at the discretion of the instructor when the student
has not properly completed the course requirements (i.e., major
assignments or examination). Except for the TZ grade, the letter grade
following the T represents the grade the instructor would assign if the
outstanding work were to remain uncompleted. The temporary grade
becomes permanent if the work is not completed as required (see "TZ"
grade below). When the student has completed the required work, the
instructor will assign a permanent grade. In no case will this
permanent grade be poorer than the assigned temporary grade.
Instructors should specify a time limit for completing the course
requirements prior to the end of the following term. All grade changes
are completed online, see: http://nbregistrar.rutgers.edu/facstaff/grades.htm
- "TZ" grade: Temporary or incomplete grade is used only in
undergraduate courses, and should only be assigned when a student is
unable to finish his/her course work due to a verifiable emergency
situation. The student and faculty member should endeavor to reach an
agreement as soon as possible as to how the course should be completed.
The TZ will have no immediate effect on a student’s GPA, however, if
the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the TZ
will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.
("TZ" is not used in graduate courses).
- "NG" grade: Where no grade is assigned on the final grade
roster by the faculty member the Registrar shall assign NG (No Grade
Given) for both undergraduate and graduate coursework. The NG will have
no immediate effect on the student’s GPA, however, if the situation is
not resolved within the following semester, the NG will convert to an
"F" and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.
Graduate Grades - In addition to the regularly assigned grades above, the following apply only to graduate coursework:
- "IN" grade: "Incomplete" is used only in courses offered by
the graduate schools. Anyone to whom you assign an "IN" may have any
time period you agreed-upon (up to one year to complete the work, but
up to two years in Graduate School of Education and College of
Pharmacy, Pharm.D. courses). It is your responsibility to see that the
agreed-upon date is adhered to, and to Change the Grade Online, see: http://nbregistrar.rutgers.edu/facstaff/grades.htm.
"IN" becomes a permanent grade after one year, except in the Graduate
School of Education where it converts to NO/CR and in the College of
Pharmacy, Pharm.D. where it converts to "F" after two years.
- "PA" or "NC" grade: Only used for graduate level courses in
the School of Education for students who opt for Pass/No Credit. All
other School of Education courses receive regular grades.
- "S" or "U" grade: Graduate students registered
Not-For-Credit ("N") credit-hour prefix must complete all coursework
except for the final exam and are graded "S" (Satisfactory) or "U"
(Unsatisfactory). ("N" prefix will precede credit hours on roster and
must be chosen at time of registration).
