Grading Policies

Extended-X Option

The School of Informatics and Computing does not recognize Extended-X grades for internal purposes and degree requirements. Grades of FX calculate as grades of F (D-X grades as grades of D-, DX grades as grades of D, etc.). This calculation will apply to all categories of academic standing (good standing, probation, and dis-missal); class rank; and all grade point average requirements in the degree, including cumulative, semes-ter, and major concentrations.

A student may exercise this option for no more than 3 courses, totaling no more than 10 credit hours. A student may use the Extended-X option on the transcript only once for a given course.

Only courses attempted during or after the fall 2001 term will be eligible for replacement under the Extended-X policy. The following grades cannot be replaced under the Extended-X policy: S, P, W, I, R, NC.
