Grading System

Repeat Grades  

A course retaken to improve a grade will result in only the higher grade being calculated in the academic average. The lower grade will remain on the academic transcript but will not be included in the grade point average or in the earned credit total. Repeated courses shall be taken at Georgian Court, unless special permission is given by the department chairperson of the student’s major.

Prior to Fall 2000, repeated courses were averaged into the cumulative GPA. 

A repeated course is indicated by the following: [  ] 

Incomplete Grades

Incomplete grades not completed within six weeks after the end of a main semester will revert to an "F".  No special notation is recorded on the transcript.

Skills Development Courses

Credits are not applicable towards the degree requirements.
