B Above Average “B” generates three grade points for each credit hour.
C Average  “C” generates two grade points for each credit hour.
D Below Average  “D” generates one grade point for each credit hour.
I Incomplete

“I” indicates an incompletion of the course.  Courses can only be postpone sixweeks into the following term. “I” earns no credit or grade points.  If course completion is not accomplished within six weeks the “I” will result into an “F”.

CF Carry Forward    “CF” a grade will be assigned in a subsequent term.
S Satisfactory “S” earns no credit hours or grade points.
