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.

Find out more about our letter and point system, and other grading criteria (withdrawals, incompletes, transfer credit, and more), in our Transcript Grading Key.

You can view your grades online about 5 days after the semester has ended. Visit: MySLCCGrades” or ”DegreeWorks” cards.

Incomplete Grades

You may be approved to receive an incomplete grade in a course if the following apply:

  • Circumstances in your life, such as serious illness, death in the family, or employment change prevent you from continuing in a course. You must provide documented proof.
  • You’re passing the course at the time you request an incomplete grade.
  • You’ve completed about 70 percent of your course. That percent may vary, depending on your instructor’s discretion.

After meeting all of the criteria above, submit an Incomplete Grade Contract.

  • Submit the Incomplete Grade Contract via MySLCC > Student Academic Profile card.
  • Instructor will receive the requested contract and will either approve or deny. If approved, they will list the required coursework and date for completion. Request with required terms of completion will be sent to the student for final approval. Once the student has approved the requirements, the request will be sent to the Office of the Registrar for posting ‘I’ grade to student record.
  • Contracts typically last six months but no longer than one year. You do not need to re-register for an incomplete class.
  • If you don’t fulfill the contract within one year of receiving the incomplete grade, your incomplete grade will be changed to a failing grade of E, and you’ll have to retake the class to receive credit.

Repeat Courses

If you receive a low grade in a course, you can repeat the course to raise your grade and GPA. However, repeating courses might affect federal financial aid, and the time it takes for you to complete a program of study.

  • Repeated courses are automatically processed on your student record and marked with an “E” (exclude) in the repeat column on your transcript.
  • Repeated courses marked with an E are excluded from your GPA. However, grades for all repeated courses will be listed on your transcript.
  • The highest grade received among repeated courses will be marked with “I” (include) in the repeat column on your transcript and will be calculated in your GPA.
  • Only one repeated course, for the same course, may be included in the total credit hours earned toward graduation.
  • If you repeated courses prior to 2002, you’ll need to complete a Repeated Class Notification form and fax it 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.
