X Grades

The grade “X” means “no grade given.” This grade will be used only in those rare situations when professors cannot assign students a letter grade or incomplete.

The “X” grade will not affect the students’ semester or cumulative GPA’s at the time it is given. However, the “X” grade must be removed from the students’ record prior to the end of the students’ next semester of enrollment. Otherwise, it will be converted automatically to an “F” and will then be used in the students’ semester and cumulative GPA calculations. The “X” grade cannot be extended beyond the students’ next semester of enrollment.

If graduating students receive an “X” during their final semester of enrollment, they will be permitted to graduate as long as the course in question is not required for graduation.
