What is the grading policy?

Grading Policy

Awarding grades to students is the responsibility of the course instructor. You can see the grading system breakdown below. Final grades can be obtained through your My Canyons account. Grades are available by the date listed on the Student Calendar for the term in question.

The grading system and grade point equivalents are as follows:

A – Excellent – 4 grade points/unit

B – Good – 3 grade points/unit

C – Satisfactory – 2 grade points/unit

D – Unsatisfactory – 1 grade point/unit

F – Failing – 0 grade points/unit

FW – Failing – 0 grade points/unit

*Note: The FW grade indicates a failing grade because the student has ceased to participate in the class sometime after the withdrawal deadline. The FW grade is treated in the same manner as an F grade for the purposes of calculating grade point average, course repetition, and academic standings for probation/dismissal.

The following grades are not used in computing grade point average:

I - Incomplete

W - Withdrawal

MW - Military Withdrawal

CR - Credit (equivalent to a C or Better)

P - Pass (equivalent to a C or Better)

NC - No Credit

NP - No Pass

IP - In Progress

RD - Report Delayed
