*To receive a grade of “W”, students must withdraw officially through the Office of Enrollment Services by completing and
submitting the appropriate form prior to the announced deadline (see academic calendar). Students who do not officially
withdraw will be assigned a grade by the instructor.
** Applicable to developmental courses.
An “I” becomes an “F” if the required work has not been completed within the time specified by the instructor. This deadline
shall not exceed (4) four months from the completion of the term for which the incomplete was awarded. Grades of “D”may
or may not be accepted by other institutions.
Students who wish to dispute a grade should meet with the instructor of the course. If the instructor deems a grade change
should be made, the instructor will complete the Report of Change of Grade form, giving a full explanation of the reasons
for the change of grade. The time period in which any grade can be changed is one hundred and twenty days from the
posting of the grade.
Grade Point Average
To rank individual students, scholastic attainment is computed in terms of the grade point average. This average is obtained
by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of GPA hours attempted. The final grade point
average required for graduation is computed based on the summation of all the courses shown on transcripts from all
institutions attended. When a student repeats a course, the most recent grade will be used to determine the grade point
average. It is the responsibility of the student to keep informed of the accumulation of credit hours and grade point
average. This information may be requested from the Office of Enrollment Services.
Students may view their final grades
by logging on to their student accounts
through the FKCC website at
Final grade reports will not be mailed out to students.
An honors list will be prepared at the end of each term, excluding summers. Students who earn a 3.8 or higher grade point
average will be placed on the President’s Honors List; students who earns a 3.5 or higher grade point average will be placed
on the Dean’s Honors List. Only full-time students are considered for these lists.
