The following symbols are used on the student's permanent record for all courses in which the student is enrolled after the initial registration and schedule adjustment period: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, XF, I, P, S, W, and AUD. These marks remain as part of the student's permanent record and may be changed only by the original instructor on certification, approved by the department chair and the dean, that an actual mistake was made in determining or recording the grade.
Additional Record Notations
Duplicate course: Used to indicate two courses with the same course content. The second course is counted in the cumulative totals unless an exception is made by the dean.
Excluded Credit (Excl Crd): Excluded credit is noted when academic clemency has been granted.
Incompletes: The mark of "I" is an exceptional mark that is an instructor option. It is given only to a student whose work in a course has been qualitatively satisfactory, when, because of illness or other circumstances beyond the student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some small portion of the work of the course. In no case will the mark "I" be recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the work of the course.
1. This Incomplete Contract form must be submitted to the dean of the college offering the course within six weeks after the grade submission deadline (if a grade hasn't already been submitted). If any Incomplete Contract isn't completed within the six week period, the instructor will convert the "I" to the appropriate grade.
2. The student will remove the "I" by completing work assigned by the instructor; it is the student's responsibility to request arrangements for the completion of the work. The work must be completed by the time stipulated in the contract, usually by the end of the next semester, but in any event, no later than one year. If the remaining work for the course as defined by the contract is not completed on schedule, the instructor will convert the "I" to the grade indicated by the contract.
Non-applicable (Non-Appl): In all cases of transfer from one college to another at the University of Maryland, College Park, the dean of the receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicate which courses, if any, in the student's previous academic program are not applicable to his or her new program, and shall notify the Office of the Registrar of the adjustments that are to be made in determining the student's progress toward a degree. Deletions may occur both in credits attempted and correspondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be made upon the student's initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If a student transfers from one program to another, his or her record evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he or she were transferring colleges. If the student subsequently transfers to a third college, the dean of the third college shall make a similar initial adjustment; courses marked non-applicable by the second dean may become applicable in the third program.
