Academic Grades and Marks
School of Nursing Undergraduate Programs
Module Courses and Doctoral-Level Nursing Courses
Academic marks, unlike academic grades, have no effect on your GPA, but might affect your academic standing by influencing your rate of completion calculation.
|Code||Description||Affects Credits Earned?||Affects Credits Attempted?|
|CC||Credit by Examination||Yes||Yes|
|EC||Experiential Learning Credit||Yes||Yes|
|IP||Grade in Progress||No||Yes|
Only applicable to noncredit-bearing courses
You receive a grade of “AC” when you successfully complete a Purdue Global Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (ASK) or when you are granted credit for an internally assessed experiential learning portfolio. Credits marked with “AC” contribute to Purdue Global residency requirements.
You receive an “AU” when you audit a course.
Credit by Examination
You receive a grade of “CC” when you are granted credit for an externally administered examination such as CLEP or DANTES. Other credit by examination approved by the University may also be represented by this grade.
Experiential Learning Credit
You receive a grade of “EC” when you are granted credit for military training, reviewed professional learning, or other assessed learning approved for credit by the University.
You receive a temporary grade of “I” when you are granted an incomplete grade to allow for additional time to submit coursework beyond the course end date. This grade has no impact on your cumulative GPA until a final grade is assigned.
Grade in Progress
You receive a temporary grade of “IP” when you withdraw from a traditional course in the last two weeks of a term/session. At the end of the term, “IP” grades are converted to withdrawals or earned grades. (See Registration for more information.)
You may receive an “NR” if you are not obligated to enroll in a course to complete your degree requirements.
Pass, Satisfactory, or Unsatisfactory
Designated courses are graded on a pass/fail grading scale, as indicated in the course descriptions. A passing grade will be awarded for any numeric grade corresponding to a passing grade in the standard grade scale, unless otherwise noted in the course syllabus.
You receive a grade of “TC” when postsecondary aligned coursework you completed at another institution is applied to your enrolled program at Purdue Global.
You receive a “W” if you withdraw from a course or are administratively withdrawn from a course.
You may be eligible to receive an “MW” with approved supporting military documentation per the Military Service Provision.
