Undergraduate and Graduate Grades

Undergraduate Grades

The following grades are used to report the quality of undergraduate student work at UCLA:

A+ Extraordinary
A Superior
B Good
C Fair
D Poor
F Fail
P Passed (achievement at grade C level or better)
NP Not Passed
I Incomplete
IP In Progress
DR Deferred Report

Grades A, B, C, and D may be modified by a plus (+) or minus (−) suffix. Grades A, B, C, and P denote satisfactory progress toward the degree. A grade of D may be applied toward degrees unless otherwise prohibited by program requirements. However, courses in which a grade of D is received must be offset by higher grades in the same term for students to remain in good academic standing. A grade of F yields no unit or course credit.

Graduate Grades

The following grades are used to report the quality of graduate student work at UCLA:

A Superior Achievement
B Satisfactorily demonstrated potentiality for professional achievement in field of study
C Passed the course but did not do work indicative of potentiality for professional achievement in field of study
F Fail
S Satisfactory (achievement at grade B level or better)
U Unsatisfactory
I Incomplete
IP In Progress
DR Deferred Report

The grades A, B, and C may be modified by a plus (+) or minus (−) suffix. The grades A, B, and S denote satisfactory progress toward the degree. A grade of C may be applied toward graduate degrees unless otherwise prohibited by the program requirements. However, courses in which a grade of C is received must be offset by higher grades in the same term for students to remain in good academic standing. A grade of F yields no unit or course credit.

The schools of dentistry, law, and medicine use their own grading codes. Students interested in dentistry, law, or medicine programs should contact the appropriate school for more information.
