Evaluation and Grades
As a CCV student, you can choose either letter grades (A, B, C, D, or F with plus or minus), or a pass/fail system (Pass or No Pass). All pre-college (developmental skills) courses are evaluated on a P/NP basis.
Regardless of the grading option you choose, you also receive a narrative evaluation from the instructor which includes information about course objectives, your performance, and recommendations for further work.
A "C-" or above indicates satisfactory work. A "D" or "P" (equivalent to D- or better) indicates marginal performance and cannot be counted as credit toward degree program requirements. "F" or "NP" grades indicate a failure to meet course objectives and expectations.
All grades (A through F, P, NP, and W) appear on official transcripts. Grades of "P" or "NP" will not be factored into a student's GPA; all other grades factor into a student's GPA.
For more detail, consult our Policy pages.
CCV now awards two different kinds of honors - Term Honors and Graduate Honors.
Graduate honors are granted to students who are graduating in any given year. These honors are awarded based on a student's cumulative GPA. The breakdown for these awards is:
Cum Laude: 3.50, Magna Cum Laude: 3.70, Summa Cum Laude: 3.90.
