The current JWU undergraduate grading system is as follows:
Failure (F) Issued if you fail to achieve adequate scholastic progress. The grade is recorded permanently on your personal record. Upon successful completion of the course at a later date, the cumulative average is adjusted to reflect only the passing grade. However, both grades will appear on the academic transcript. This system allows you to recover academically from poor terms and graduate within a reasonable amount of time.
Withdrawal (W), Withdrawal/Pass (WP), Withdrawal/Fail (WF) In order to record attempted credits (including for purposes of determining satisfactory academic progress), a grade of W, WP, or WF is recorded when you withdraw from a registered course after its add/drop period has ended. A W is a punitive and failing grade issued at the instructor’s discretion, and is entered permanently into your term and cumulative grade point averages. In order to qualify for a WP, you must have an estimated grade of 60 or higher at the time of withdrawal. This grade is not entered into the term and cumulative grade point averages. If the estimated grade is below 60, you will be issued a WF, which is entered into the term and cumulative grade point averages as a failing grade until successful completion of the course at a later date.
