Faculty & Advisement Center \ When to Use W, WF, F, and I Grades


W (Withdrawal in Good Standing) and WF (Withdrawal Failing) * Special Note: One of the reasons last dates of attendance are so important is because students who receive financial aid and withdraw from their courses may be subject to an adjustment in aid based on the date provided. If audited, the College could be asked to demonstrate that financial aid was disbursed accurately and in accordance with federal regulations concerning attendance.

F (Fail) * Special Note: Students who receive financial aid and receive F grades are eligible to keep their aid since an F confirms that the student did not withdraw. Therefore, it is crucial that the College remain consistent in the practice of only submitting F grades for those students who were actively enrolled and regularly attended class, but failed the course work required.

I (Incomplete)
