Note: 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
  • B+
  • B=Good
  • C+
  • C=Satisfactory
  • D=Poor (not used in graduate courses)
  • F=Failing
  • 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=Dissertation study in Graduate School of Education

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).
