Grades at Danville Area Community College
The final semester grades are determined by the instructors, according to the grades the student earns in all phases of class work: class discussions, tests, daily work, laboratory work, reports, term papers, and the semester examinations. Final grades should reflect consistent improvement as well as averaged grades. Course grades can be viewed (approximately 1-2 days after the course ends) through our online student services. Mid-semester grades are posted by individual instructors. A student may file notice and repeat any unsuccessfully completed course, and the higher grade earned will be used to compute the cumulative grade point average.
If you have any questions about your grades, please call the Records Office at 443-8797 within 30 days of the graded semester. Grade changes will only be considered during the 30 day time period after the semester ends.
The letter system of grading is employed as follows:
A Excellent 4 grade points per semester hour
B Above Average 3 grade points per semester hour
C Average 2 grade points per semester hour
D Below Average 1 grade points per semester hour
F Failed 0 grade point per semester hour
The following grades do not affect grade point average:
W Official Withdrawal of a student within the Withdrawal Policy guidelines.
I Incomplete - This is a temporary grade. All incomplete work involved with a temporary “I” grade will be performed within 30 calendar days after the end of the term so that a grade may be recorded.
P Completed/Passed grade used for successfully completed labs and orientations.
AU Audit - Student auditing a class will receive an “AU” grade.
