Grade Point Average
The grade point adverage is found by taking the (Total Grade Points Earned) divided by (Total units attempted with letter grade).

Progress percentage
The progress percentage is found by taking the (Total units with W, I and NC) divided by (Total units enrolled).

Incomplete
An instructor may assign an incomplete grade, "I", when the instructor believes the student cannot complete the requirements of the class before the end of the semester due to unforeseeable emergency and justified reasons. To receive credit for the class, the student must finish the incomplete work within one year after the end of the semester. After the work is completed and evaluated, or when the time has expired, a final grade will be assigned. A student receiving an incomplete may not reenroll in the class.

In Progress
If you receive an "in-progress" grade, you must re-enroll in the class in the next semester. If you don't re-enroll, a grade will be assigned in lieu of the "in-progress."

Good Standing
To be in good standing, CRC considers both the quality of your work and your progress toward completing your objectives. You merit good standing if you:

  • complete 12 or more semester units
  • earn a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
  • complete 50 percent or more of all enrolled units

Academic Renewal
In some circumstances, a previous substandard grade (D's or F's) can be alleviated. You may petition for discounting these units in computing the grade point average, if they meet the criteria set out by the Admissions/Records policies. However, no discount will be given for coursework required for a degree or certificate that has been granted.

Probation
If your grade point average is below 2.0 in all graded units, and you have attempted at least 12 units, you are placed on academic probation. If half or more of your classes have notations of "withdrawn" (W), "incomplete" (I), or "no credit" (NC), you are placed on progress probation. In either case, a counselor will work with you and may limit the number of units you may take the following term. Probationary status may affect any financial aid funds or supported jobs. Academic probation ends when your cumulative grade point is at or above 2.0. Progress probation ends when less than half of the units have entries of "W", "I", or "NC".

Credit/No Credit
You may choose one course each semester from courses which allow credit/no credit (CR-NC) grading. A petition must be filed with the admissions office before the deadline published in the Class Schedule. A grade earned with an "A", "B" or "C" grade will be recorded as CR with units earned. A "D" or "F" grade will be recorded as NC with no units earned. Units attempted for CR - NC grades are not computed in the grade point average but are used for determining progress probation and dismissal. Once you have filed for CR - NC grading in a course, it cannot be changed to a letter grade. No more than 20 units of credit/no credit may be applied toward an AA or AS degree.

Catalog Rights
To graduate from any Los Rios District college, you may choose to meet the requirements established in one of three course catalogs during your academic career:

  • The catalog in use when you were admitted to a Los Rios college.
  •  The catalog in use when you originally enrolled in an accredited college or university.
  •  The catalog in use at your intended graduation date from a Los Rios college.
