Grading, Transfer Policies and FERPA

  • Online courses offered by UCCS have university-level content and subject matter and university-level expectations and standards. 

  • Grades earned in online courses become part of and remain on the student's permanent University of Colorado record. Therefore, it is extremely important that a student earn at least a 'C' grade in online courses. A grade of C-minus or below could prevent a student from being admitted to any campus in the University of Colorado system, regardless of the student's high school GPA or college entrance exam scores, as a C- corresponds to a GPA of 1.70, and students must have a minimum of a 2.0 University GPA to be admitted to or remain in good standing at the University. STUDENTS WHO ARE AT RISK OF RECEIVING A GRADE LOWER THAN "C" SHOULD CONSIDER WITHDRAWING FROM THE COURSE PRIOR TO THE WITHDRAWAL DEADLINE!

  • Policies regarding the transfer of credits and the specific ways in which they apply to degree requirements vary from institution to institution. It is the responsibility of the student to contact his/her prospective post-secondary institution and to provide necessary information so the institution may determine if/how the credits earned are transferable.

  • Students must act on their own behalf. Parents, high school officials and others are not permitted to enroll, drop, or add classes on behalf of the student.  Students are covered under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Parents may gain access to student records only if the student submits a FERPA waiver giving consent. This can be done, by the student, in the UCCS student portal.
