  • The Registrar’s Office will enter a grade of NG (“No Grade”) for any missing grades after the grade submission deadline for Undergraduate or Graduate courses. Then, any “changes” to that NG grade will require the submission of a Change of Grade form.


Grading procedures should conform to policies described in the ACU Catalog.

  •  “W” or “WF” may not be assigned during the final grading period.
  • Students who never attended the course must be reported to the Registrar’s Office by the end of the second week of class.  If a student was not reported, a Retroactive Change Form will be required to remove them from the class roster.
