New Grading Scale at UF Plus/Minus

<p>Is a D- considered failing?</p>

<p>It looks like an E is failure. You actually get credit for a D-. </p>

<p>Office</a> of the University Registrar</p>

<p>It probably also depends on what context you mean "failed". I'm looking at an ACG2021 syllabus that says a passing grade of "D" is a prerequisite for ACG 2071. Minus grades do not satisfy preceding requirements. In that case you could not move along to ACG 2071.</p>

<p>I guess it depends on the specifics of the class and what you need to meet your requirements.</p>

<p>Another example if you get a C- in a general education class, you do not get the general education credit.</p>

<p>In the sense that an E is failing, a d- is considered passing.</p>

<p>By the same coin, a c- is considered not passing for classes listed as "C or better".</p>

<p>Check your degree audit, if it comes up as a + instead of a -, it means the d- fulfilled the requirement.</p>

<p>Wow, this system seems inherently unfair. Whats the point in distinguishing between an A- and an A+.</p>

<p>Having + grades without - grades was ridiculous anyway. I don't believe there are A+ grades under this scheme.</p>

<p>There are no A+. We figured this out when D got her grades this week. One class she had 100 percent in, figured it might be an A+, but she got an A. Then we read further ... drats. :)</p>

<p>quit complaining, I got two 3.0 B's with 89.x at MDC</p>

<p>D- is 'passing'</p>

<p>but each college acts as its own 'company' , their rules are the ones that are applied last .. if they say you need a C to 'pass' all your classes then that is the end of it actually...which means you need to retake class with C- , which I know of many people which this happens to</p>

<p>So long, the days of yore, where a B+ was a 3.5 :-(.</p>
