The grading system used at Georgia Perimeter College is as follows:
B 80-89 Good
C 70-79 Average
A grade of "C" is the minimum grade required for certain courses, as specified in the programs of study and Course Descriptions section of this catalog.
D 60-69 Poor
A grade of "D," while giving hours credit, will not apply toward the degree in courses requiring a "C" or better.
F Below 60 Failure
"WF" indicates that the student withdrew from the course while doing unsatisfactory work. (See Course Withdrawal in this section of the Catalog.) No credit toward graduation is given for a course in which a grade of "F" or "WF" is received.
Special Note: All grades issued to Dual Enrollment students will be recorded as letter grades based on the college grading system. College instructors will not issue numerical grades. For the grading system for Nursing and for Dental Hygiene, please refer to the departments.
The following symbols are used in the cases indicated, but will not be included in the determination of the cumulative grade point average:
This symbol indicates that a student was permitted to withdraw from the course without penalty.
WM Military Withdrawal - No grade
IP In Progress
This symbol applies to Learning Support and under certain circumstances is assigned in lieu of grades below "C."
This symbol indicates the student has satisfactorily completed a substantial portion of the course work, but for non-academic reasons beyond the student's control, the student has not been able to complete some specific part or amount of the work required (for example, the final examination). An "I" not satisfactorily removed by the end of the following semester will automatically be changed to an "F." The time allowed for completing work may be extended to a maximum of 12 months when circumstances prevent the student from completing the work during the following semester. To obtain an "I," the student and his or her instructor must complete the Petition for "I," which will include a description of the work to be completed and the completion date. Copies of the Petition for "I" will be filed with the instructor and the appropriate department chair. Learning Support students may not receive an "I" in any required Learning Support course.
These symbols ("S" and "U") are not used except for certain courses in the technical programs and other special credits where a grade point average is not computed, such as credits by examination.
K This symbol indicates credit granted by examination.
NR No Grade
This symbol is used when no grade is submitted.
No credit is given to a student who audits a course. (See Auditing Courses.)
