Grading System

Effective for fall 2014, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will implement a plus/minus grading system.  If a prerequisite course requires a minimum grade of "C", or if a minimum grade of "C" is a requirement in the student’s declared major, a grade of C- will not fulfil the requirement. Grades are assigned and recorded as follows:

Grade Description Quality Points
A Excellent 4.0
A- Excellent 3.7
B+ Good 3.3
B Good 3.0
B- Good 2.7
C+ Average 2.3
C Average 2.0
C- Average 1.7
D+ Below Average, but passing 1.3
D Below Average, but passing 1.0
F Failing grade 0.0
U Unsatisfactory failing grade 0.0
I Incomplete

An “I” becomes an “F” or “U” if not removed within the designated time. An Incomplete is not given merely because assignments were not completed during the semester.
