If you take a course more than once, all count in your gpa, but only one counts for graduation hours.

That’s not true at all schools.

unc grade requirements
UNC grade requirements
  • You need a 2.0 gpa to move from one year to the next.
  • You need a 2.0 gpa to graduate.
  • You can take more than 18 hours in one semester only if you received at least 3.0 the previous semester and 2.5 overall, except for second semester seniors who can take up to 20 hours if they have 2.0 or better.

grade reporting12
Grade reporting
  • Write neatly. Someone has to read the grade.
  • Department keeps a copy.
  • You keep a copy.
  • There’s no feedback (other than students’ complaints) that the grade you wrote is the grade that was recorded.
  • We can check individual grades.
in the future
In the future…

We will access a web page showing a list of our students and for each, just the grades for which they are eligible and a set of radio buttons.

We will be able to bring up a web page showing the grades that were actually recorded.

Maybe, starting fall 2010.

changing a grade
Changing a grade
  • Changing a temporary grade is easy.
  • Changing a permanent grade is harder. Only valid reason is clerical error.
  • Student can appeal a grade.
