Grading System


The grading system reflects a 4-point scale. The following letter grades are used:

  • A (Excellent) = 4 points per credit hour
  • B (Above Average) = 3 points per credit hour
  • C (Average) = 2 points per credit hour
  • D (Below Average) = 1 point per credit hour
  • F (Failure) = 0 points
  • CF (Carry Forward) = Not computed in GPA
  • W (Withdrew) = Not computed in GPA
  • WF (Withdraw Failing due to Attendance) = 0 points
  • S (Satisfactory) = Used in non-credit courses; not computed in GPA
  • SC (Successfully Completed) = Used in non-credit courses; not computed in GPA
  • U (Unsatisfactory) = Used in non-credit courses; not computed in GPA
  • A* (This grade is not calculated in GPA)
  • B* (This grade is not calculated in GPA)
  • C* (This grade is not calculated in GPA)
  • E (Exemption) = Student exempted course by proficiency, articulation, or other means; not computed in GPA
  • AU (Audit) = Not computed in GPA
  • NC (Not Reported)
  • TR (Transfer Credit) = Not computed in GPA
  • NR (Not Reported)
  • I (Incomplete. Student has not completed course work.)**

A student may repeat any credit course. All grades will appear on the transcript and the higher of the grades will be included in the grade point average.

The Veteran's Administration will not pay benefits for repeating a course for which the student previously received a passing grade.

A student has one year from the date the grade is entered to contest the grade.

Students may access grades and other academic information through myCCTC

**Grade indicates no points, not calculated in GPA. Work must be completed mid-semester within the following semester, or the "I" grade will automatically convert to an "F," in which case the entire course must be repeated.
