The following are standard grades at BTC:
"W" (Withdrawn) will be given to the student who officially withdraws from the class after the add period, and before the last twenty percent of the session. Dates are listed in the Student Handbook.
"AU" (Audit) can be issued at the time of registration upon full payment of tuition and fees if a student wishes to attend a class without receiving college academic credit or a grade. Changing from "credit" to "audit" may take place up to approximately 50 percent of the academic session. Changing from "audit" to "credit" must be completed during the add period. Dates are listed in the schedule of classes.
"I" (Incomplete) may be given at the discretion of the instructor if it is believed that the student has a valid reason for not having completed the course work and can fulfill the requirements during the designated time (not to exceed one semester). An Incomplete not made up by the end of the designated time will automatically become a 0.0 with a grade of "F". Incompletes may be extended at the discretion of the instructor.
"TR" (Transfer) acknowledges the fact that credit was granted for previous educational experience, work experience or other reasons.
"PR" (Test Out) is given when a student has passed a proficiency test.
Students are considered to be in academic good standing when they have a minimum overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.0.
Grade Point Average
Grade point average (GPA) is a weighted average of grades. A grade for a course is multiplied by the credit hours for that course to obtain "grade points". Total grade points are then divided by total credit hours to determine the grade point average. The semester GPA is the weighted grade point average. When a course is repeated, both the most recent grade and previous grade will appear on the transcript (official academic record). However, only the highest grade will be counted in the BTC cumulative grade point average. Grades of S, U, I, W, TR, PR and AU are not used in the computation of grade point average.
