Grades are issued at the end of each semester. Students are responsible for notifying the Admission Office of address changes. A grade of “C” or better is required in all courses for graduation. Transcripts of grades are not built for noncredit courses.
|Grade||Numerical Equivalent||Grade Points|
|A||90 – 100||4|
|B||80 – 89||3|
|C||70 – 79||2|
|D||60 – 69||1|
|F||0 – 59||0|
The following symbols are approved for use in the cases indicated.
I Indicates that students have an “incomplete” but have satisfactorily completed a substantial portion of the course work. For NON-ACADEMIC reasons beyond their control, the students have not been able to complete some specific part or amount of the work required. An “I” must be satisfactorily changed to a letter grade by the midpoint of the next semester, or it will be changed to the grade of “F” by the Enrollment Service. Students must get approval from the instructor prior to the end of the semester to be eligible for an “I” grade. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.
IP Indicates that a course continues beyond the end of the semester.
W Students who withdraw before the midpoint of the semester receive a grade of “W” Withdrew. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.
WP Indicates students who withdraw passing from a course after the midpoint of the semester receive a grade of “WP Withdrew Passing,” if they were passing the course at the time of withdrawal. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.
WF Indicates students who withdraw from a course after the midpoint of a semester (or course) receive a grade of “WF-Withdrew Failing,” if they were failing the course at the time of withdrawal. The “WF” grade is calculated as an “F” in the grade point average.
EX Indicates that a student has exempted a course through examination or through the articulated Tech Prep programs. Credit is given but grade points are not calculated. Instructors must submit an Advanced Placement Verification Form to the Enrollment Service’s office to report an exemption.
TR Indicates that a student has been awarded transfer credit from another institution. Credit is given but no grade points are calculated. If a student earns credit for a course taken at Atlanta Technical College for which transfer credit has been awarded, then the transfer credit will be deleted from the student’s record.
AC Indicates articulated credit earned by students as a part of formal articulation agreements.
AU Indicates an audited course. No grade is given, no credit hours are earned and grade points are not calculated. Auditing a course must be initiated during the registration process. Approval for an audit cannot be granted after participation in classroom instruction. Instructors must submit an Advanced Placement Verification Form to the Enrollment Service’s office to report an audit. Audited classes are not eligible for financial aid.
Grade Point Average
To calculate student grade point average, use this formula:
Credit Hours x Grade Point Equivalent (GPE) = Total Quality Points.
|Grade||Grade Point Equivalent||Credit Hours||Quality Points|
|A =||(4.0) x||(2.0) =||8.0|
|B =||(3.0) x||(5.0) =||15.0|
|C =||(2.0) x||(4.0) =||8.0|
|D =||(1.0) x||(5.0) =||5.0|
|Total (16.0)||Total (36.0)|
Multiply the number of Credit Hours for each course times the assigned Grade Point Equivalent. Total Credit Hours, and then total all Quality Points. Total Quality Points divided by Total credit Hours = Grade Point Average. 36.0 divided by 16 = 2.25 GPA.
Numerical values of letter grades are as follows:
|Excellent||A||90 – 100|
|Good||B||80 – 89|
|Average||C||70 – 79|
|Below Average||D||60 – 69|
|Failure||F||59 and below|
|EX||Credit by Examination||Not Computed|
|WP||Withdrew Passing||Not Computed|
|WF||Withdrew Failing||Computed as F|
|WF*||Withdrew Failing||Not Computed (Learning Support)|
|TR||Transfer Credit||Not Computed|
|AC||Articulated Credit||Not Computed|
