Registrar's Office

Registrar’s Office: Grades and Grade Point Average Calculation

How soon after the term will I get my grades?

  • Grades will be posted to a student’s bannerweb account after end of term grade processing, typically, no later than three (3) Business days after the last day of final exams.
  • Students are responsible for accessing their bannerweb account to view their grades at that time and to challenge/appeal them if they do not agree with a grade they received for a course.
  • Grades are not mailed to the student’s residence.

Can I call the Office of the Registrar and ask for my grades by phone?

How will I know if I am passing my classes during the semester?

  • Communicate with your instructor(s) about your progress.
  • Check your catsmail daily for notifications from the academic department.
  • Maintain a good academic standing by earning a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher each semester.

Who do I consult if I do not agree with the grade I received in a particular class?

  • Students questioning a grade assigned to them in a particular class should contact the faculty instructor of the course in question.
  • If the faculty instructor is unavailable, the student may contact the division office under which that class is taught.
  • If students need further assistance, consult the current EGSC catalog for challenging grade procedures.

How do I remove an Incomplete (I) grade from my record?

To remove an incomplete grade the student must satisfy the instructor's remaining requirements.  An Incomplete grade is expected to be satisfied by the end of the student’s next semester of enrollment.  Without regard to enrollment, an ‘I’ must be removed within one calendar year.  If the student does not complete their course requirements, the ‘I’ will convert to an ‘F’. Students Do not repeat a course for which they received an ‘I’.

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated by:

  • Multiplying the credits for each course by the grade points associated with the grade earned (see chart below).
  • Totaling the points earned for all courses
  • Dividing the total points by the number of credits will give you your grade point average.
