Grading Scale

The following grades and marks are used at TMCC:

Grade Grade Point Value
A SUPERIOR 4.0
A- 3.7
B+ 3.3
B ABOVE AVERAGE 3.0
B 2.7
C+ 2.3
C AVERAGE 2.0
C- 1.7
D+ 1.3
D BELOW AVERAGE 1.0
D- 0.7
F FAILURE 0.0

The grade point value associated with each grade denotes how many points are accumulated for each credit earned with that grade. The grade point average is determined by dividing the sum of the grade points earned by the total number of units earned with a regular letter grade.

Individual faculty members choose whether to use the “plus” and “minus” grades. Students are informed of the instructor’s choice of grading scale at the beginning of the class in the course syllabus. Students may not appeal the format an instructor chooses. The following marks are also part of the grading system, but carry no grade point value.

P (Pass) Workforce Development and Community Education, developmental/remedial, credit-by-exam courses, or nontraditional credit only
S (Satisfactory) C or above
U (Unsatisfactory) D or below
I (Incomplete)
IP (In Progress)
AD (Audit)
W (Withdraw) Student withdraws by the midpoint of the course. Date of last attendance is recorded in MyTMCC.
NR (Not Reported) Assigned by Registrar pending submission of final grade by instructor.
R (Replaced) Individual course grade replaced under academic forgiveness. Will not calculate into GPA.
