Discontinued Grades & Grade Symbols
The following symbols have been implemented as prefixes to grades in the student system to identify repeated courses including the application of the F grade repeat policy and Board approved variance, as well as to indicate a grade’s impact on GPA and credit accumulation. CUNYfirst College have retired the use of these prefixes as they went live in CUNYfirst. Converted records will continue to display with the legacy prefix designation in CUNYfirst.
Repeated course which counts in the GPA but does not count in credits completed
Course does not count in the GPA and does not count in credits completed
Replacement grade, F grade policy, does not count in cumulative GPA
Repeat F grade policy, does not count in GPA, does count in credits completed
The following grades are no longer in use and have been removed from the legend of grade symbols. Colleges may not use any symbol which is no longer in use and therefore not included in the glossary. Values have been defined in this document for historical purposes of computation on existing transcripts.
