The grading system at Roane State Community College includes the following recommended marks for work performed by students:
|B - Above Average||W - Withdrawal|
|C - Average||P - Pass|
|D - Passing, but below average||AU - Audit, no grade or credit|
|F - Failure||WD - Academic Development Withdrawal|
The grade "I" indicates that the student has not completed all course requirements because of illness or other circumstances beyond his/her control, especially, those which may occur toward the close of the term. Failure to make up work or to turn in required work on time does not provide a basis for the grade of "I", unless the extenuating circumstances noted under, "Testing of Students," are present for reasons acceptable to the faculty.
If a student fails to appear for the final examination without known cause, the grade to be reported should be determined as follows: If the student has done satisfactory work to that point, the grade "I" may be reported on the assumption that the student was ill or will otherwise present sufficient reason for an official excuse. If the student has attended irregularly and has not done satisfactory work to that point, the grade "F" should be reported.
An "Incomplete" must be removed by the close of the following term, excluding the summer term, unless the instructor can justify the extension of time. Otherwise, the grade of "F" is automatically entered. Faculty who expect to be absent the following term must recognize their responsibility for making arrangements with the student or with the dean for removal of the incomplete record.
At the discretion of the Vice President of Academic Services, selected courses may be offered using a pass/fail grading system. A "P" indicates a passing grade in such cases. In all cases, the student would have the option of being graded by pass/fail, or the standard "A, B, C, D, F" method.
Final grades must be filed in the Records and Registration Office within the specified time after the scheduled final examination for each course or section. Faculty members will have a copy of the grades recorded for each class of students. Once a grade has been submitted, it may not be changed without the approval of the dean. Grade change forms are available from the Records and Registration Office.
Revised: 7/1/90, 3/7/94, 7/01/95, 11/08/99
