Most courses use the traditional grading system, providing grades of A through F. However, grading may take other forms, including:

P/F

This grade may only be used for thesis or dissertation credit, special project, practicum, internship or other specialized course.

CR/NC

Credit/No courses as approved by the program. CR or NC may not subsequently be changed to a letter grade (See credit/no-credit option policy.)

I

Indicates incomplete coursework (See incomplete policy.)

W

Indicates withdrawal (See withdrawal policies.)

IP

Indicates a course "in progress" that spans more than one semester

There is a one-year time limit for grade changes (except Incompletes) and only the original instructor of the course may change a grade. CR, P and W designations may not be changed to letter grades. An "I" must be removed from the student's record within one semester. See specific sections that elaborate on the institutional policies concerning the designations CR/NC, I, Pass/Fail and W.
