If you need an unofficial final grade, please contact your mentor directly. (Note that the mentor receives the exam about a week after you take it. Please allow time before you contact the mentor.)

If you haven’t requested an extension and your mentor is only missing your final examination as of the date he or she is required to submit the final course grade, your mentor will give you an “I” (Incomplete) final grade. If the examination is not received by six weeks after the term end date, the “I” (Incomplete) grade automatically becomes an “IF” (Incomplete Failure).

All course grades are reported as letter grades with the exception of PA (Prior Learning Assessment), PR (Practicum) and EP (e-Pack), noted below. Grades for PA, PR and EP courses are reported as Credit or No Credit only.

Graduation:

If this course completes your degree requirements for a Thomas Edison State College degree, you should apply for graduation after you receive your final grade report (about four weeks after the end of the term). If you have an approved extension, your final grade will be released after your mentor submits an updated final grade. You may NOT request to graduate or receive a transcript of the course grade until you receive your official final grade report from the Office of the Registrar.
