Grade Changes and Incomplete (I) Grades

When a student’s previously posted end of term grade is changed, his or her HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship Grade Point Average (GPA) is reevaluated as well as the student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for HOPE/Zell and Federal Student Aid (FSA).  The reevaluation begins with the term to which the grade change applied.  If the grade change negatively impacts the student’s HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship and/or FSA eligibility, the student will be required to repay any affected financial aid already received and any undisbursed aid will be canceled.

Although the University's academic policy provides students up to 12 months to complete an incomplete (I) grade, one or more “I” grades can adversely affect the Minimum 67% Pace of Completion component of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

NR grades are posted by the Registrar’s Office when they do not receive a final grade from the instructor.  As is the case regarding incomplete grades, one or more “NR” grades can adversely affect the Minimum 67% Pace of Completion component of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
