Grading Policy

  • Pass/Fail Courses: Certain courses are graded on a pass/fail basis.
  • Incompletes: Incomplete grades must be resolved within the next semester.
  • Withdrawals: A ‘W’ grade indicates a withdrawal from the course.
  • Repeating Courses: Students may repeat courses to improve their grades.

1. What happens if I get an incomplete grade?
Incomplete grades must be completed by the end of the next semester. For more details, visit the Hernando website.

Pass/fail courses are graded with a ‘P’ for pass or ‘F’ for fail, and these do not affect your GPA.

Withdrawing from a course will result in a ‘W’ grade, which does not affect your GPA but indicates you withdrew after the drop deadline.

5. How can I appeal a grade?
Grade appeals must be submitted within one semester of receiving the grade. Detailed procedures are available on the Hernando website.

6. What are the quality points for each grade?
Quality points are assigned as follows: A = 4.0, B = 3.0, C = 2.0, D = 1.0, F = 0.0.
