There are no changes to the process for calculating and assigning grades for Fall 2020.
There are multiple grade outcomes for students who stop attending classes.
W: This grade is not assigned by faculty; it is assigned as a result of the student withdrawing from a class after add/drop and before census, or following an approved petition of an official withdrawal (see section on Course Withdrawals for more information).
WU: This grade is assigned by faculty to indicate that a student stopped attending early in the course, and as a result, the faculty member is not able to adequately assess student performance; it is known as an unauthorized withdrawal.
The decision to assign an ‘I’ grade is up to you; you may access instructions on how to create an agreement with a student in PeopleSoft.
