What is the grading structure for Summer Session courses?

Students are graded at the end of each course by the following symbols.

Grade Definition Numerical Equivalent
A Outstanding 4.0
B+   3.5
B Good 3.0
C+   2.5
C Satisfactory 2.0
D Poor 1.0
F Failing 0.0
 

P/NC (Pass/No Credit)

A grade of Pass (equivalent to grades of A, B+, B, C+, and C) or No Credit (equivalent to grades of D and F) are assigned to students who have registered for their course on this basis. Visiting students are not permitted to take courses on a P/NC (Pass/No Credit) basis. Only Rutgers University students may take courses on a P/NC basis, when such registration is in accord with the regulations of the student’s college and the faculty offering the course. Requests for P/NC grading must be made at the time of registration by inserting the symbol P or NC in the “credit hour prefix” column on the registration form. This option may not be made or changed after registration is completed.

T (Temporary)

Grades of TB+, TB, TC+, TC, TD, and TF are used for incomplete and temporary grades in undergraduate courses. Temporary grades are given at the discretion of the instructor when the student has not properly completed the course work requirements, i.e., major assignments or examinations. The letter grade following the T represents the grade the instructor would assign if the outstanding work were to remain uncompleted. The temporary grade becomes permanent if the work is not completed as required. In no case is the permanent grade poorer than the assigned letter grade. Summer T grades must be completed by December 1st.

TZ (Temporary Grade)

The TZ grade should only be assigned when a student is unable to finish his/her course work due to a verifiable emergency situation. The student and faculty member should endeavor to reach an agreement as soon as possible as to how the course should be completed. The TZ will have no immediate effect on a student’s GPA, however, if the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the TZ will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.

NG (No Grade)

Where no grade is assigned on the final grade roster by the faculty member, the Registrar shall assign a NG (No Grade Given). The NG will have no immediate effect on a student’s GPA, however, if the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the NG will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.

IN (Incomplete)

May be assigned at the discretion of an instructor of a graduate course who believes that an extension of time is warranted for a student whose work is incomplete at the end of the course. (Unresolved incomplete grades may convert to failing grades in some courses. Consult the course instructor.) Incompletes assigned in a Summer Session must be completed in accordance with the regulations of the faculty offering the course. The IN (Incomplete) grade is not used in undergraduate courses.

W (Withdrawal)

Used when a student officially drops a course prior to the seventh calendar day preceding the ending date of the course. This grade is assigned by the Registrar upon formal withdrawal from a course.
