Ro-103 Grades Letter Grades of A, B, C, D, and F Letter Grades of A-F and WF are used to calculate the institutional Grade Point Average (GPA).

There are three possible outcomes from a semester on Academic Warning: ( 1) A student who raises his/her institutional grade point average to meet the Academic Standards will be removed from Academic Warning. (2) A student who receives a term GPA of 2.0 but does not raise the institutional GPA enough to meet above standards, will remain on Academic Warning.
