Grades and Grading Policies

SLCC awards letter grades of A to E, with corresponding quality points of 4 to zero to calculate your Grade Point Average (GPA) for all completed courses.

You can view your grades online about 5 days after the semester has ended. Visit:

Incomplete Grades

Incomplete grades may be given by an instructor to students who:

  • Cannot continue in class because of extenuating circumstances (such as serious illness, death in the family, or change of employment) with proper documentation.
  • Are passing the course at the time of the Incomplete grade request.
  • Have completed a substantial portion of the course (70%).

If the above requirements are met the instructor can work with the student to give the student an incomplete grade.

  • The student must work directly with the instructor to create a contract indicating required work and time limits for completing the course.
  • The contract should specify:
    • The required work to be completed and/or tests to be taken, and
    • Time allowed for requirements to be completed. Suggested time period is six months, however the time period may not exceed one year from the time the Incomplete grade was received.
  • The student does not re-register for the class, but should work directly with the instructor to complete the contract.
  • If the student fails to fulfill the contract by the determined completion date or within one year of when the Incomplete was received, the Incomplete grade will be changed to the grade of "E" (failing).

REPEAT COURSES

Students may repeat a course in which low grades are received, however they should be cautioned that repeating courses might affect federal financial aid, and the time it take to complete a program of study. Repeated courses are automatically processed on the student record and marked with an "E" (exclude) in the repeat column on the transcript. Courses so marked are excluded from the GPA calculation, however all grades remain on the student transcript. The highest grade received in the course will be marked with "I" (include) in the repeat column on the transcript and are calculated in the student's cumulative GPA. Only one repeated course for the same course may be included in the total credit hours earned toward graduation.

Students who repeated courses prior to 2002 will need to complete a Repeated Class Notification form which may be faxed to the Office of the Registrar and Academic Records at (801) 957-4961.

InTERSTATE PASSPORT

SLCC participates in the Interstate Passport Initiative in which a block of lower-division general education classes is accepted between institutions and noted on your transcript for articulation purposes. SLCC issues the Passport upon completion of the General Education Certificate of Completion with a C or better in all courses. SLCC’s General Education requirements are met (except for American Institutions, which is a requirement mandated by the Utah state legislature) for in-coming students who have earned a Passport elsewhere.
