Grades

Find your final grades in PAWS. Marks for essays, quizzes, midterms, labs and other assignments are usually saved within Canvas. Only midterm marks for 100-level multi-term classes are required to be displayed in PAWS.

In PAWS, there is also information about understanding your grades and appealing your grades.

Prior to 1982, courses were normally either full courses (equivalent to 6 credit units) or half courses (equivalent to 3 credit units) although quarter- and eighth-classes existed. Half courses were indicated by an A, B, or C attached to the course number, quarter courses by a Q, eighth courses by an R. Full courses had no letter.

Since 1982, a credit unit is the basic unit of instruction. A typical two-term course which meets for approximately 3 hours per week is 6 credit units, and a single-term course is 3 credit units, although courses of other weights exist.
