What are the acceptable grades that can be assigned at Rutgers University?
For undergraduate students, you may submit a grade of either A, B, B+, C, C+, D, F, NG, TZ, or TF.
For graduate students, please contact your Academic Dean’s Office for a listing of acceptable grades.
A grade of NG (no grade given) is assigned to a student who has not attended the course. In addition, where no grade is assigned on the final grade roster by the faculty member, the Registrar shall assign the NG. The NG will have no immediate effect on a student’s GPA, however, if the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the NG will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.
The TZ should only be assigned when a student is unable to complete the semester’s course work due to a verifiable emergency situation. The student and faculty member should endeavor to reach an agreement as soon as possible as to how the course should be completed. The TZ will have no immediate effect on a student’s GPA, however, if the situation is not resolved within the following semester, the TZ will convert to an F, and the GPA will be recalculated accordingly.
The TF is assigned if the student does not complete the course work required, or has not taken the final exam. The TF will be calculated into the GPA immediately. If the course work is not made up within the following semester, the TF converts to an F.
