Academic Policies and Procedures


Grading Policies

Extended-X Option

Any undergraduate student may retake a course for which he/she received a grade below an A. A student may exercise this option for no more than three courses, totaling no more than 10 credits. A student may use this option only once for a given course. The following grades cannot be replaced under the Extended-X policy: S, P, W, I, R, NC.

NOTE: The School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering will calculate both grades, not just the second grade. 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 dismissal); class rank; and all grade point average requirements in the degree, including cumulative, semester, and major.

For transcript purposes:

The student’s official transcript shall record both grades. For the course retaken, only the second grade shall be counted in the determination of the student’s grade-point average (GPA). Any GPA calculated in accord with this policy shall be marked with an asterisk denoting that a lower grade has been replaced by a second grade in the course.
