Minus Grades

Minus grades are here! Beginning with courses offered Summer A/C 2009, professors will have the option to assign minus grades.

S/U Option

Currently an S/U course must be graded as a “C” or better to receive an “S.” Therefore, if a faculty member assesses the work of a student as a “C-” (1.67) or lower they should assign a grade of “U.”

General Education Credit

A “C-” (1.67) will not result in an award of General Education credit.

Writing and Math (Gordon Rule) Requirement

Students earning a “C-” (1.67) in writing/math courses taken to fulfill these requirements will not receive writing/math (Gordon Rule) credit.

President’s Honor Roll policy remains the same!

“A-” grades will not yield the perfect 4.0 GPA required to achieve the President’s Honor Roll designation.

UF Repeat Course Policy remains the same!

Grades Earned

GPA / Credit Compulation

First grade lower than a C, Second grade of C or higher

Each grade computed in grade point average; credit earned only once.

First grade lower than a C, Second grade lower than a C

Each grade computed in grade point average; credit earned only once.

First grade of C or higher, Second grade lower than a C

Each grade computed in grade point average; credit earned only once.

First grade of C or higher, Second grade of C or higher

Only first grade computed in GPA; credit earned only for first attempt

Links

Due to the institution of minus grades and the resulting changes in the grade point equivalencies of letter grades, all UF course syllabi must contain information on grade point equivalencies for the grades to be assigned in each course.

The UF Policy on Course Syllabi now requires that all UF course syllabi must contain information on current UF grading policies for assigning grade points, even if the course does not use minus grades. This may be achieved by including a link to the appropriate undergraduate catalog web page.
