Grades

Grades are available on-line at www.ncat.edu, AGGIE ACCESS On-line as soon as grades are determined at the end of each semester.

Grade Point Average

The grade point average is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of semester hours included for quality points.

Change of Grade

A request for a change of grade, for any reason, must be made within one year following the date the original grade was assigned by the faculty member.

Grade Appeal

A student may appeal the final grade earned in a course. Initially, the student should attempt to resolve the matter informally through the instructor of the course, the department chair and/or dean of the academic unit in which the grade was assigned. If the matter is not resolved through this level of interaction, then the student should consult the individual school/college on its written grade appeal policy. A student wishing to pursue a written appeal of a grade must demonstrate a legitimate basis for the appeal. Grade appeals are final at the level of the school/college.

Quality Points

Quality points are computed by multiplying the number of semester hour credits by 4 for courses in which a grade of A is earned; by 3 for a grade of B; by 2 for a grade of C; or by 1 for a grade of D. Zero (0) quality points are given for a grade of F or U.
