First-Semester Grading Policy​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Effective for entering students Fall 2017 and is not retroactive.

A. All failing grades (F, WU, FIN, WF) for first-semester students shall be converted by the Registrar to NC or R. First-semester students shall be defined for this purpose as:

1. A full- or part-time freshman in the first semester of matriculation at Queens College with 24 or fewer credits combined from Advanced Placement; International Baccalaureate; college preparatory programs including High-Jump and College Now; and coursework from non-accredited or accredited post-secondary institutions. The only exception shall be for a Fall semester freshman who chooses to attend the immediately-preceding Summer Session. In such cases NC or R shall be recorded for failing grades as defined in “A” received in both the Summer Session and the Fall semester of entry.

2. A full- or part-time first-semester transfer student with 30 or fewer combined credits as defined under #1. The only exception shall be for a Fall semester transfer who chooses to attend the immediately-preceding Summer Session. In such cases NC or R shall be recorded for failing grades as defined in “A” received in both the Summer Session and the Fall semester of entry.
