Grading

Teachers of UHS Program courses are required to assign official grades. All grades MUST be submitted online via the MyUAlbany website. Teachers will be notified regarding grading activities prior to the end of each session. Online grading is very simple and takes little time to accomplish.

The University at Albany uses a letter-based grading system and utilizes pluses and minuses (+/-) to allow for variations of the assigned grades. Acceptable grades are A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E (“E” being the designation for failure). The University does not use grades of A+ or F. In rare cases, a temporary grade of “I” (incomplete) can be assigned by the instructor, indicating that the student has every intention of completing required work for the course. Grades of “I” which are not resolved within University time frames will automatically revert to a grade of “E”. There are no S/U (Pass/Fail) grading options through the UHS Program. Grading scales are determined by individual instructors and are listed on the syllabus given to each student at the beginning of each session. Teachers cannot assign a “W” (Withdrawn) as a final grade for any student. The responsibility for withdrawing from any course taken through the UHS Program rests with the individual student. If a student does not submit a written request to withdraw from the UHS Program Office by the published deadlines, the student’s name will appear on the final grade roster. Students who do not successfully withdraw or complete the course should be assigned a grade of “E”. All students listed on a grade roster must be assigned a grade.

All grades assigned become a permanent part of the academic record (transcript) at the University at Albany. If a UHS student enrolls at the University at Albany, all UHS grades received, including grades of “E”, will be used in the calculation of the student’s Grade Point Average at the University at Albany. The grade of “W” is non-punitive, but will appear on the student’s transcript.

Failure to report grades online by the specified date/time may result in students not receiving grades and University at Albany credit for the course(s) they have completed. Additional grading information and instructions are available on the UHS website under “Grading.”
