Grading Methods


Grading Methods

(01) A - F Grading - Most college courses are graded with the traditional A-F letter grades.

(02) Pass/Fail Grading - Students will earn either a P or F grade. Students electing the P/F option in any of these courses must indicate their intent no later than the end of the drop period. A 'P' requires performance at the 'D' level or better. Performance below the 'D' level will result in an 'F'. RCTC offers a limited number of courses with a pass/fail grading option. Speak to your course instructor or the admissions office to determine if this grading method is available.

(03) Audit - A student may participate in a course as an auditor, which means no assessment (grading) is required. Students auditing a course are charged the standard tuition and related fees. Audited courses cannot be counted toward graduation requirements. Students electing the audit option must indicate their intent no later than the end of the drop deadline for the particular course.

(04) Pass / No Credit - Students will earn either a P or NC grade. Students electing the P/NC option in any of these courses must indicate their intent no later than the end of the drop period. A 'P' requires performance at the 'D' level or better. Performance below the 'D' level will result in an 'NC'. RCTC offers a limited number of courses with a pass/fail grading option. Speak to your course instructor or the admissions office to determine if this grading method is available.

(05) Test Out - This grading method is not used at RCTC. To learn about testing-out of a class (also called Credit for Prior Learning) refer to RCTC Policy 3.15.4.

(06) CEU - This grading method is reserved for non-credit courses.
