WU and F Grades Policy

A grade of 'WU' is a failure grade given to a student who began attending the class (at least one session) and stopped attending. This grade is assigned by the instructor to indicate that the student stopped attending the course before the end of the semester; or as a result of excessive absences for which there is no basis to give a final letter grade of "A to F," and the conditions for a grade of 'INC' do not apply. This grade is calculated in the GPA as zero and gives no credit. If a student wishes to receive credit for the course, it must be repeated with a passing grade; however, the 'WU' grade remains on the transcript. (A "WU" grade should never be given in place of an "F" grade, the "F" grade is an earned grade based on poor performance.)

A grade of "F" is a failure grade given to a student who completed the class and failed. This grade is assigned for work that in the judgment of the instructor does not deserve college credit. This grade is calculated in the GPA as zero and gives no credit. If a student wishes to receive credit for the course, it must be repeated with a passing grade; however, the "F" grade remains on the transcript.
