Study Guides and Strategies

 

Using the Mid-Term Grade Report (D/F List)

Please keep in mind that these lists are provided to allow you the opportunity to help your members who may be falling behind. Encourage them to take advantage of the assistance provided on campus. (Keep in mind that not all courses include the requirement to post mid-term grade updates. In particular, upper level courses may not be included.)

When you look at the report, you will see grade codes for each course. Here is what they mean:

D or F – That is the grade that would be earned if the course ended at midterm.

NC – the student is taking the course credit/no credit, and would not earn credit for the class.

XD or XF – This is for a developmental course, and does not count for the student’s GPA or for graduation. This is usually a course that is needed prior to taking another course that does count toward graduation.

NF – This indicates non-attendance in the course.

RD or RF – This is for a remedial course. It does not count toward graduation, but is included in GPA calculations.

Members appearing on this list should be encouraged to meet with their faculty to their deficiencies, and how to overcome them. Chapters can also help by providing tutors in specific subjects. Housing & Dining Services also has a Homework Heroes program for residential students to assist with academic success & planning.
