A “W ” indicates an approved withdrawal from the course and is assigned only when the student has completed the official withdrawal processes.

A “UW ” indicates an unauthorized withdrawal and is assigned only when the student has never attended the class for which he/she enrolled.

An “I ” is assigned due to unanticipated circumstances the last week of the term that make the student unable to complete course requirements within the allotted time (e.g. he/she missed the final examination due to sickness, an emergency in the family).

The instructor must submit to the school director, a written notice of the specific coursework to be completed before the final grade is determined; a copy is kept in the school and one is provided to the student.

To amend a grade of “I” with an earned grade on a student’s transcript, the student must complete all incomplete course work by the last day of the next semester, including summer term .

If the course requirements are not completed within the time limitation and the grade received in the Registrar’s Office, the grade will be recorded on the academic record as a failing or unsatisfactory grade. Student may petition for a one-term extension through the Registrar’s Office if extenuating circumstances are warranted. For more information contact the Registrar’s office (970) 351-2231.

The grade of “NR ” is used for honors courses, theses, dissertations, and other courses that have been granted approval for “NR” grading. The “NR” is assigned when the coursework requires longer than a semester to complete. The “NR” will be replaced by the appropriate grade when the work is completed.

The course syllabus contains important information regarding course requirements and the grading system utilized. It is the responsibility of the students to read the syllabus and consult the instructor if they have questions.
