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.

Look for this card on your MySLCC Experience page:


Incomplete Grades

Incomplete grades may be approved by an instructor for 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 submit an Incomplete Grade Contract request form via MySLCC > Student Form Card > Incomplete Grade Contract Form. Submitted requests will then be sent to the Instructor via email for approval. Documented proof of extenuating circumstances must be sent directly to instructor/academic department.
  • The Instructor will list contract specifications which should include:
    • 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.
  • Contract with Instructor specifications will be sent back to the student for approval. Once approved by both Instructor and Student, the signed contract will be sent to the Office of the Registrar and Academic Records to post the ‘I’ grade to the student record.
  • Upon completion of coursework, the instructor will request a Faculty Grade Change to update the ‘I’ grade to the final grade.
  • 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 the requested term, the Incomplete grade will be changed to the grade of "E" (failing).


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.


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.
