HQV GRADES FOR JC:

 

To comply with college policy and federal regulations, you will be assigned HQV grades at approximately one week, two weeks, and eight weeks. The grades assigned are letters with the following meanings:

 

V = VERIFY This means that your instructor VERIFIES that you are participating in the class, submitting work and your work so far has been acceptable.

 

H = HELP This means that you are participating, but your work shows that you may need some HELP in order to complete the class successfully. If you receive an H grade, you will be contacted by the Center for Student Success and offered tutoring services.

 

Q = QUIT This means that you have effectively QUIT participating in the course. If you receive a Q grade, you will automatically be withdrawn from the course by your instructor.

Note: Although your instructor may withdraw you for non-participation before midterm with a Q grade; only you, the student, can initiate a withdrawal after midterm. Incomplete grades will be given only in accordance with Jackson College policy.

 

Note: This syllabus is not a contract: it is a general plan for the course. Each course and each group of students is unique. We may do more or less work than is outlined above discretion.
