The letter grades are given for individual courses, and grade points are used to compute GPAs for each student at the end of each term, on both a term and a cumulative basis. Earned grades of F (not assigned administratively) are permanent and cannot be changed.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

The term or cumulative GPA is calculated by using the following formula:

GP = Grade Points | Credits = Credits

Drexel University computes a single, cumulative undergraduate and graduate GPA that includes all coursework you've taken at the university. The GPA is calculated to two respective decimal points and the resultant GPA is not rounded up.

Only the credits earned from the first time a course is completed with a passing grade will be included in your earned and passed hours.

Cumulative GPA Calculation

Drexel University computes a single, cumulative undergraduate GPA that includes all coursework you've taken at the university. Only the credits earned from the first time a course is completed with a passing grade will be included in your earned and passed hours. For more details on the GPA calculation please view the University Grading Policy.

Grade of Incomplete (INC)

At the discretion of your instructor, the grade of "INC" (Incomplete) may be reported in place of a letter grade for any course in which your instructor deems that the work has not been completed and that you can complete the work within an agreed upon time (which must be in accordance with university policy and the statute of limitations governing grade changes). A grade of "INC" may be entered for you at the time grades are submitted for the course.

The conditions and terms for the completion of the course are at the discretion of your instructor and are to be mutually agreed upon by you and your instructor. It is recommended that a written agreement be developed between you and your instructor to clarify expectations and process. If the grade is not submitted within one full academic year, the "INC" will turn into an "F" on your record and be reflected in your GPA. The grade of "F" will be considered a permanent grade.

Grade Not Reported (NGR)

An NGR is recorded when your instructor does not report a grade normally. Typically, this should only be used if you're known not to have attended the course.This is not a grade, but a temporary indicator that requires prompt resolution leading either to the removal of the course from your  record or the assignment of a grade.

If a final grade is not reported by the end of the following term, an administrative grade of F will be reported and recorded on your transcript. If the "NGR" notation is left unresolved by the last day of classes of the next term immediately following the term that the original NGR was reported, it will become an F. This grade will be calculated as a failure in your  GPA and is considered a permanent grade.
