Grade Types
Academic Records

Every SCE (Student Course Entry) has a grade type associated with it that determines the grades students can receive and whether or not they can receive credit for the course.

Some grade types are student options, that is, students may elect these grade types:

- AU (audit, except undergraduates)

- PF (pass/fail)

Some courses have grade types associated with them. These grade types override the student options and may include the following:

- DM (dissertation)

- NG (non-graded)

- PF (pass/fail)

- XC and XX (exclude credit)

You cannot change the grade type for an SCE after the student is enrolled in the course using Screen 104, Registration-Drop/Request. Authorized users may change a grade type for an SCE on Screen 113, SCE Maintenance.
