FINAL GRADE REPORTING
Final class grades can be viewed online through the Student Portal by clicking "Grades and Schedule" under the Academics tab. Grade reports are mailed only at the written request of the student.
PASS/NO CREDIT OPTION
Students may select any one course of their elective work per semester on a pass/no credit basis subject to the following provisions:
Pass/No credit forms are available in the Registrar's Office. Students must apply and turn in pass/no credit forms by the date published in the Academic Calendar. This date is always the end of the third week of classes. Forms will not be accepted after that date.
REPEAT COURSE OPTION
Matriculated students admitted Fall 1985 or after and non-matriculated students registering Fall 1993 or after, may repeat any previously attempted Purchase College course to earn a higher grade at Purchase College. The higher grade will be the only grade computed in the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA), unless the previous grade was a permanent failing grade resulting from an academic integrity saction. Note: Students cannot repeat courses that are no longer offered at Purchase College.
Except for approved repeatable arts courses, a course may not be repeated for a third time, unless special permission is granted by a Chair or Director.
WITHDRAWAL FROM A COURSE---THE "W" GRADE
After Add/Drop (but only until the 9th week of classes), students can withdraw from a course and receive a grade of "W" for that semester. This is a grade representing withdrawal without prejudice and appears on the transcript. "W" grades are not punitive and are not calculated in the grade point average. Forms can not be accepted after the deadline published in the Academic Calendar.
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE
If you are not planning to return to the College this coming term, you must stop by the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs (Student Services Building, third floor) to complete an official withdrawal form.
CALCULATING YOUR GPA
Under the Grade Point Average System, each mark is given a quality point as follows:
A+ = 13; A = 12; A- = 11; B+ = 10; B = 9; B- = 8
C+ = 7; C = 6; C- = 5; D = 3; F/WF = 0
