The grade of PW or FW will be determined by the professor of the course and submitted to the Registrar at the time the student withdraws from the course, on an official withdrawal form.
The grade of PW, although included on the student's transcript, is not computed into the grade-point average or the cumulative average. The grade of FW is computed into the grade-point average and the cumulative average.No course withdrawal can be initiated after the last day of classes as designated in the academic calendar in the semester or term in which the course is taken.
The system of evaluating a student's achievement at Husson is by letter grade, with grade-point values based upon an earned three-hour credit unit as follows:
| Letter Grade
|| (Grade-Point Average
|| (Quality Points)
|| Numeric Grade
+P C level work or higher. Passed
+++NG No Grade Submitted (temporary grade)
*WW Withdrawal up to Midterm
+PW Withdrew Passing
FW Withdrew Failing
+E Exited wihtout withdrawing
X Credit Denied Because of Excessive Absences
+WA Administrative Withdrawal
+++l Incomplete (temporary grade)
++AU Audit, no credit earned
+L Student enrolled but never attended course, no withdrawal on file.
+ Grade does not affect GPA
++ Audit Courses: Students who wish to audit a course (enroll for noncredit) must follow the usual registration procedure.
+++ A temporary grade (I & NG), if not converted to a final grade, becomes an F at the mid point of the following term or semester.
The Registrar's Office does not report grades upon a verbal request to do so. Only written requests by authorized personnel are acknowledged.
Undergraduate degree and Special students who do not achieve the minimum cumulative grade-point average listed below receive warnings or are placed on Probation as indicated:

A Husson student who withdraws from one baccalaureate program and enters another may petition the Chief Academic Officer to obtain relief from low grades. The Chief Academic Officer will consult with the Dean who has jurisdiction over the student's new program of study. If the petition is granted, the Dean will identify courses which are unrelated to the new major and to the University's general education requirements and in which the student earned grades of F, X, or FW. The grades from these courses will be withdrawn from the calculation of the GPA in the student's new program of study.
Relief under this policy is an option open to students only once. Should the student later seek re-admission to her or his original degree program, the grades withdrawn from the GPA calculation under this policy will be restored to reflect the student's performance in that program.
A reentry student who previously received grades of F, X, or FW at Husson University, may petition the Provost for Academic Forgiveness if they meet the following requirements:
The ability to petition for forgiveness of these grades is available even if the student pursues the same or similar degree. All course grades forgiven will remain on the student’s transcript, but will not be calculated into the student’s GPA. Academic Forgiveness for reentering students is available only once and applies solely to Undergraduate courses.
