Roxbury Community College assigns a letter grade for all credit courses. Each letter grade from A-F, carries a numerical value which is used to calculate a student's Grade Point Average (GPA).

and no credit is earned.
AP - Attended and Progressed - only for Pre-College courses
I - Incomplete A student has made satisfactory progress in a course and has
completed most of the course work except for a final paper
or exam. This grade is given at the discretion of the instructor.
P -Pass - applies to non-credit courses only
NP -Did not Pass - applies to non-credit courses only
S - Satisfactory (A-C equivalent) - midterm evaluation only
U - Unsatisfactory (D-F equivalent) - midterm evaluation only
W - Official Withdrawal - a student officially withdraws from a course.
WA - Administrative Withdrawal - a student is withdrawn from a course by
a faculty member or administrator.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)
Grade points earned in any course are found by multiplying the quality points assigned to the letter grade by the number of credits for the course. A student's grade point average is determined by adding the total points earned in all courses that semester and dividing this total by the total credits attempted. For example, a student earned the following grades for one semester:
||Attempted Credits Total
|Total Quality Points: 27 GPA = 27/13 = 2.08
Credits Attempted: 13
