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

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, request an Incomplete grade from your instructor.

  • Coordinate with your instructor to create a contract that outlines work to be completed and/or tests to be taken, and the time allowed to complete them.
  • Contracts typically last six months but no longer than one year. You do not 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

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.
