The grading system at Roane State Community College includes the following recommended marks for work performed by students:
|A - Outstanding||I - Incomplete|
|B - Above Average||W - Withdrawal|
|C - Average||P - Pass|
|D - Passing||AU - Audit, no grade or credit|
|F - Failure||FA - Failure, Attendance based|
The grade "FA" indicates that the student failed the course, and the last date of attendance reported by the instructor of record was not more than two-thirds of the length of the course.
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.
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 Student Learning, selected courses may be offered using a pass/fail grading system. A "P" indicates a passing grade in such cases.
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.
