Midterm & Final Grades

You can find midterm and final grades along with additional important student information in MyOTC on the AccessOTC tab. Students may also view the unofficial transcript in MyOTC through OTC Central. OTC will not mail grades. However, students who need a hard copy of the grades may request a transcript.

Grading System

OTC issues official grades for each student at the end of each semester. The college will grade students enrolled in credit courses by the letter grade system and assign them a grade point average (GPA) for each semester. We determine GPA by dividing the total number of grade points by the number of credit hours attempted. To calculate your GPA, use the GPA calculator. OTC requires a GPA of 2.0 for graduation, unless otherwise indicated through your program of study. The college does not include developmental courses and transfer credits in the GPA computation.

Grade Definitions

A

The student has, in an exemplary way, met the objectives established for the course.

B

The student has, in a superior way, met the objectives established for the course.

C

The student has adequately met the objectives established for the course.

D

F

AU

The student enrolled in and completed the course as an “auditor.” Requirements for successful completion as an auditor are arranged with the course instructor. Does not count as credit for the course.

G

Academic Fresh Start. Used in conjunction with the original letter grade earned by the student. Course no longer counts toward a certificate or degree. Not counted for academic honors.

I

An “I,” or incomplete, indicates that a student has been doing acceptable work but has not completed a small amount of the work. It is the student’s responsibility to have this deficiency removed within six (6) weeks after the incomplete is assigned. When, in the judgment of the instructor, a student is not making a reasonable effort to remove the incomplete, the grade will automatically be changed to an “F.”
