Grading Standards

TSTC measures student achievement of skills, knowledge, and competencies through a system of grading standards.  Four grades (A, B, C, D) indicate that credit was received and a grade was awarded. One mark (CR) indicates that credit was received but no grade was awarded.  One grade (F) and various other marks indicate that no credit was received and no grade was awarded.

The following system of final grades and marks is used by TSTC to report student performance for each course attempted and/or credited toward graduation.  Contact College Records for additional information.
