An 'E' grade is assigned to students who complete the class but who fail due to poor performance, lack of understanding, etc.

Remember to add the last date of attendance/participation!

A 'UW' grade is assigned to students who have earned a failing grade (E) due to non-attendance or non-participation.

Incomplete Grade

An 'I' grade is assigned to students who are unable to complete the class in the standard time frame due to extenuating circumstances as defined in the UVU Catalog. The form is found in myUVU.
