Grading System

A grade represents an evaluation of a student’s academic performance in a class and is determined by criteria established by the faculty and communicated to students in the course syllabus. No grade less than a “C” is acceptable for graduation purposes within the student’s program of study. The Savannah Technical College grading system is as follows:

Grade Explanations

WF – (Withdrawn Failing) Indicates that a student was failing when he/she officially withdrew on or after midterm.
This is computed into the GPA as a grade of “F”.

WP – (Withdrawn Passing) Indicates that a student was passing when he/she officially withdrew on or after midterm. This is not computed into GPA.

I – (Incomplete) Indicates that a student has satisfactorily completed a substantial portion of course work, but circumstances beyond the control of a student or an instructor prevent the completion of course requirements during a semester. An “I” (Incomplete) is recorded until final grade is established. The Incomplete is assigned only when the student has arranged with the instructor the specific procedures for fulfilling the course requirements. The coursework must be completed by midterm of the following semester or the grade will be changed to an “F” if a student does not register for the course in which he/she has an “I”. The student may complete the course at no additional cost.

W – (Withdrawn) Indicates that a student withdrew prior to midterm. The “W” is also used when a student withdraws from learning support courses, continuing education, or other non-credit courses. This is not computed into GPA.

EX – (Exempt) Indicates that a student has earned course credit based on an examination approved for course
exemption. This is not computed into GPA.

TR – (Transfer Credit) Indicates that a student has received transfer credit for courses taken at another institution. This is not computed into GPA.

S – (Satisfactory) Indicates satisfactory completion of assigned work. This is not computed into GPA.

U – (Unsatisfactory) Indicates unsatisfactory work. This is not computed into GPA.

AU – (Audit) Indicates that a course was audited. No credit is given. This is not computed into GPA.

WS – (Workshop/Seminar) Indicates participation in a non-credit workshop or seminar. This is not computed into GPA.

A* -F* (Learning Support Courses) Indicates the grade earned for any learning support course. This is not computed
in GPA but does count towards HOPE GPA.
