Grading Options and Definitions
Detailed grading options and definitions are below the table.
|B||3.0||Good/Better than Average|
|P||Passing (Under the Pass/Fail option, grades of D- and above covert
to a P. Other specified courses may also be graded on a Pass/Fail basis.)
|NC||No Credit Desired|
When registering for courses, letter grading (A, B, C, D and F) is the traditional method for credit and grading and offers the credit that is listed with the course. Most courses at CU are taken with this option. However, you can also select from the following credit and grading options:
NOTE: After the deadline you must contact your dean’s office (Arts & Sciences, contact the Academic Advising Center, Woodbury 109) to request changes.
Final course grades appear in MyCUInfo immediately after being posted by the faculty member. The grading process does take several days; so all grades will not appear on your record at the same time. Final grades should appear on your transcript generally 2-3 weeks after your last final exam for the term. If you are still missing grades by this date, know that departments are aware of the problem and trying to contact faculty on your behalf. However, your best option is to contact the instructor directly. Student GPAs are not accurate until all grades are entered for the semester.
If you think there has been an error on one of your class grades, contact your instructor directly.
Parental Access to Student Grades and Records
Students must authorize parental access to their grades and other non-directory information by filling out the FERPA Student Permission Form (This link still goes to our old website). Authorized parents may then complete a Transcript Order Form and include a letter requesting a copy of the transcript, the designated password established by the student, any payment (if applicable), and the parent contact information. These may be mailed, faxed, or hand delivered to our office.
