Final grade submission for a term begins on the first day of final exams. Instructors are asked to submit final grades within 48 hours of the final exam or no later than the posted deadline date.

Grade Notations

The following notations may appear on a transcript to describe special situations in regard to a course.

NC No Credit. No honor points. Not computed in the grade point average. Used only in specially approved courses that are graded A, B, C, No Credit.

I Incomplete. No honor points. A student whose coursework for the term (other than final examination) is incomplete in a minor way may, upon completion and approval of the I Contract Form, be granted the privilege of completing the work within a five-week period for the College of Engineering and Computer Science or the College of Business, and a four-month period for the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters and College of Education, Health, and Human Services beginning on the first day of classes of the immediately following term. Beginning with the Fall 2021 term, all colleges will follow the five-week deadline for completing the coursework. If granted this privilege, a grade of I will be recorded. Failure to complete the required work within the specified time, or the denial of this privilege by the instructor, may result in a grade of E for the final grade. In extenuating circumstances an extension beyond the stated period may be requested by means of a petition that has been endorsed by the instructor and approved by the Academic Standards Committee. However, such arrangements for completing the work must be made within the above stipulated time period. Failure to complete the required work within the specified time may result in a grade of I being automatically treated as an IE and counted in the student's grade point average. The I will remain on the transcript even after the official final grade is assigned.

X Absent from Final Examination. No honor points. A student who is unavoidably absent from a final examination may be granted the privilege of making up the examination within five weeks beginning from the first day of classes of the immediately following term. If granted this privilege, a mark of X will be recorded. Failure to take the examination within the specified time, or the denial of this privilege by the instructor, will result in a mark of E for the final grade. In extenuating circumstances an extension beyond the stated period may be requested by means of a petition that has been endorsed by the instructor. However, such arrangements for completing the work must be made within the above five-week period. The grade of X will automatically be converted to XE and reflected in the student's grade point average as a failing grade if the grade change is not submitted by the end of the five-week period. The X will remain on the transcript even after the official final grade is assigned.

Y Course extended beyond term end. No credit. No honor points. A mark of Y indicates that a course extends beyond the end of one term. This mark is only used for courses that have been specially designed and approved to extend beyond the end of one term. A course with a Y mark may not be completed after graduation. If such a course with a Y mark is not completed within the allowed timeframe, the Y will be converted to an E upon expiration.

NR Grade Not Reported. No honor points. Student should consult the Registrar immediately.

W Official Withdrawal. No credit. No honor points. Not computed in the grade point average. Students who drop a course or withdraw from all courses for a term before the deadline for official drops and/or withdrawals will receive for these courses the W notation. This notation may not be removed from the transcript.

S/E. Used only for specially approved courses. If a student passes, an S (satisfactory) is awarded. It is not computed into the grade point average. If a student does not pass, an E is awarded. If a student stops attending, without officially dropping, a UE is awarded. Both the E and the UE are computed in the GPA as failing grades. (Exception: Failing grades in additive credit courses that are graded S/E have no impact on the GPA.)

P/F Pass/Fail Option. No honor points. A student must elect to take a course under the Pass/Fail option. Please check with your college for its policy on electing courses as pass/fail.

UE Unearned Fail. This grade is assigned to any student who has never attended, or stopped attending class during the semester and did not officially drop. It is computed in the GPA the same as an E.

VI Visitor-Official Audit. No credit. No honor points. Not computed into the grade point average. An official audit, or visitor status, allows a student to attend a course but not elect it for credit. The VI notation appears on the transcript. Regular tuition fees are assessed.

FCV Fail Covid. No credit. No honor points. Not computed into the grade point average. Indicates a non-passing grade of D+ or lower for undergraduate students and C+ or lower for graduate students. This grade was used for the Winter 2020 semester only, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

NRC No Record Covid. No credit. No honor points. Not computed into the grade point average. Indicates a non-passing grade of D+ or lower for undergraduate students and C+ or lower for graduate students. This grade was used for the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Change of Grades

The grade that an instructor records on the final grade sheet and that appears on the student's subsequent transcript is assumed to be final; that is, the instructor's official evaluation of all of a student's performance and work completed by the official end of the term (the last day of the final examination week).
The University permits a change of grade under the following circumstances:

  1. Recognizing that mistakes can be made, the University of Michigan-Dearborn permits a student to ask an instructor for a review of a grade within the five-week period after the end of the term involved [effective Fall 2016 semester]. After the expiration of this deadline, a student may initiate a request for a review only through the petition process involving the student's College Academic Standards Committee (or comparable group), whose decision shall be final. Such a review is entirely separate and distinct from the circumstances involving an X (Absent from Final Examination), I (Incomplete Coursework), or a Y (Course Extends Beyond Term).
  2. A student (or instructor) may initiate a grade change if he/she discovers that a grade has been entered in error due to, but not exclusive to, the following:
    • possible omission by the instructor when computing the final grade, of material submitted by the student before the end of the term;
    • possible error in evaluation by the instructor of work submitted or the final examination taken by the student before the end of the term;
    • possible error by the instructor in the computation of the final grade;
    • possible error in the recording of the grade by the instructor or staff; or
    • an allegation of bias or prejudice on the part of the instructor in the assignment of the final grade (This rare charge is to be handled according to the procedures established within the academic unit.).
Grade Retrieval

Grading rosters for faculty will be made available on the study day of each term.

Although the ability to view your grade(s) is available on the dates below, you will not be able to access your 'final grade' page until, at least, one grade has been posted to your student record for the term. If grades are not available for you in a specific term, that term will be unavailable for selection.

When instructors submit their grades, they are posted to student records (on business days) at approximately 3:00 p.m. Instructors are asked to submit final grades within 48 hours of the final exam or no later than the posted deadline date.

Grades may be retrieved beginning on the dates listed below via Web.

I and X Grades

The deadlines for completion of I (Incomplete) and X (Missed Final Exam) marks will be established by the academic unit to which the course belongs, not the academic unit to which the student belongs.

Both the I and the X remain permanently on the transcript.

If coursework is not complete by the respective deadlines an E is added automatically and counts as a failing grade in the GPA.

For additional information about I and X marks please visit Grade Notations.
