Students needing Cuesta College records prior to 1984 will need to order official transcripts.
As adopted by the Board of Governors, February 29, 1980, the following grades are used in evaluating student's work (grade points per unit are in parentheses). Cuesta College uses a 4.0 grade point scale. Effective fall 2008, plus/minus grading was implemented. Grades, which carry a point value and which are used in determining the grade point average (GPA) are as follows:
Credit (At least satisfactory; units awarded are not counted in GPA.)
NP - No
Pass (Less than satisfactory or failing; units are not
counted in GPA.)
I - Incomplete. Incomplete academic work for unforeseeable, emergency, and justifiable reasons. The instructor in a written record shall state condition for removal of the "I" with a copy to the student. The "I" must be made up before the end of the following regular semester or it will be considered as an "F" grade. The "I" symbol shall not be used in calculating units attempted nor for grade points.
IP - In Progress. "IP" symbol shall be used to denote that the class extends beyond the normal end of an academic term. "IP" shall not be used in calculating grade point average.
RD - Report Delayed. The Director of Admissions and Records assigns this symbol only. Used when there is a delay in reporting grades due to circumstances beyond the control of the student. This is a temporary notation and is not used in calculating grade point average.
W - Withdrawal. "W" symbol is assigned when a student officially withdraws between the fourth and end of the twelfth week of instruction for full semester courses. For courses that are less than 18 weeks in length, withdrawal must be made during the first 20 percent of the course. (During summer sessions the withdrawal period extends through the fourth week of instruction.) Students who withdraw prior to the fourth week of instruction for full semester courses, or prior to the completion of the first 20 percent of the course for short courses, shall have no notation ("W" or any other) on their record. The academic record of a student who remains in a class beyond the twelfth week must reflect a symbol other than a "W." Withdrawal from classes after the end of the twelfth week may be made based on extenuating circumstances upon petition to the Director of Admissions and Records and with appropriate valid documentation. Extenuating circumstances are verified cases of accidents, illnesses, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student.
MW - Military Withdrawal. "MW" symbol is assigned when a student who is a member of an active or reserve United States military service receives orders compelling a withdrawal from courses. Upon verification of such orders, an "MW" may be assigned at any time after the twelfth week deadline for dropping classes. Military withdrawals shall not be counted in progress probation and dismissal calculations.
After a grade has been issued, only the instructor has the authority to change the grade per California Education Code Section 76224. A student wishing to have a posted grade changed must submit appropriate documentation to the instructor who issued the grade and must request that the grade be changed. Based on an evaluation of the student's progress in the course and the documentation, the instructor may or may not change the grade. The instructor must deliver grade changes to the office of the director of admissions and records.
There is a deadline of six months from the date that the grade is posted to initiate this request.
Grades are not automatically mailed to students. Grades for each session/semester are available the first day of the following session/semester. Students may both come to the Admissions and Records Office and pick up their grades in person with photo identification, or submit a self-addressed, stamped envelope, with their name, social security number and signature inside the flap of the envelope to the Admissions and Records Office and grades will be mailed. An unofficial transcript listing student's courses and grades is available on the Web at no charge. Grades are not released over the telephone.
Transcripts (Previous Coursework)
New and transfer students must forward official copies of all high school and college transcripts to the Cuesta College Admissions and Records Office, PO Box 8106, San Luis Obispo, CA 93403-8106. Students should plan to submit final transcripts once all course work is completed and grades are posted. Transcripts submitted to Cuesta prior to September 1998 may need to be resubmitted. Transcripts submitted to Cuesta College will not be released to students, other colleges or agencies.
