Grades and Incompletes

GRADES
At the end of the semester, the grade(s) of each student’s course(s) are reported by the instructor and entered onto the student’s permanent academic record. Proficiency attained is expressed in grades A, B, C, D, F, I, Q, QF, W, CR, P, NP, and FS.

A “Q” (Dropped) is assigned before or on the official “Q-Date” as indicated on the College calendar when a student is officially dropped from a course. May also be given after the “Q-Date” if the student is passing the course at the time the official drop is processed.

A “QF” (Dropped Withdrew Failing) is assigned after the official “Q-Date” as indicated on the College calendar when a student is officially dropped from a course.

May also be given at any time during the semester if:
1. a student is administratively dropped from a course; and

2. has exceeded the six-drop limit; and

3. does not meet any of the areas of exemption for good cause.

A “W” (Dropped Due to Good Cause) is assigned before or on the official “Q-Date” as
indicated on the College calendar when a student has officially withdrawn from the College
or is officially dropped from a course for any of the following “good cause” reasons:

1. A severe illness or other debilitating condition that affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete a course;

2. The care of a sick, injured, or needy person if providing that care affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete a course;

3. The death of a member of the student’s family;

4. The death of a person who has a sufficiently close relationship to the student;

5. The student’s active military duty service;

6. The active military service of a member of the student’s family or a person who
has a sufficiently close relation-ship to the student; or

7. A change in the student’s work schedule that is beyond the student’s control and affects the student’s ability to satisfactorily complete the course.

[For definitions of student’s family and “a person who has a sufficiently close relationship to the student,” see Definitions For Good Cause Exemption in Blinn College Board Policy ECC(Legal).]

May also be assigned to a student not impacted by SB1231 when they drop a course or withdraw from the College. Blinn College Board Policy EGA (LOCAL)

INCOMPLETES
A grade of “I” indicates that the coursework was incomplete because of serious illness or other justified emergency. The instructor shall change the grade of “I” to a grade based on the work completed for the course in addition to the work specified in the course completion contract. All incomplete work shall be completed within 90 days of the start of the next long semester. Failure to complete the work specified in the course completion contract shall result in a grade of zero, which shall be factored into the final grade calculation with appropriate weighing relative to other course grades.
