  • Students can view their grades online through MyUWF in the Student Records folder.
  • Grades are usually available through MyUWF by the close of business on the day grades are due to the Office of the Registrar (see Academic Dates & Deadlines for grade submission deadlines).

Grade Forgiveness

Grade forgiveness may be applied to undergraduate courses in which a student has earned a letter grade of “A-F” (including “WF”). Typically, first-time in college (FTIC) students are allowed two opportunities for grade forgiveness during their undergraduate program. Undergraduate transfer students are permitted one opportunity to apply for grade forgiveness.

All students wishing to use grade forgiveness should thoroughly review the University’s Grade Forgiveness Policy prior to submitting an application. A Grade Forgiveness Form must be completed by the student and their advisor and the dean or department chairperson (if applicable).


Audit Grading Option

Students may select the audit grading option at the time of registration or by the end of the designated drop/add period for the course. Prior to choosing or canceling the Audit Grading Option, students should review the information found in the University Catalog and at Understanding Grade Modes.
Students selecting the audit option:

  • will not receive academic credit for the course.
  • will receive a grade of "X".
  • who are classified as non-Florida residents for fee purposes will have the fees for the course assessed at the in-state rate.

All courses taken utilizing the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver will be taken on the audit option.

To request a cancellation of the Audit option, students should complete the Cancellation of the Audit Option form.

Deadlines for canceling the audit option can be found in the Academic Calendar.


Pass/Fail Grading Option

Undergraduate students may select the pass/fail grading option at the time of registration or by the end of the designated drop/add period for the course. Prior to choosing or canceling the Pass/Fail Grading Options, students should review the information found in the University Catalog and at Understanding Grade Modes.

  • Students must be in good academic standing to select the pass/fail option.
  • The pass/fail option may be selected for six semester hours or two courses (whichever is greater in credit).
  • The pass/fail option cannot be used for courses required to fulfill degree requirements.
  • Students will receive a grade of "P" or "F"; a failed course taken on the pass/fail basis counts as part of the maximum six semester hours used towards the pass/fail grade option and is computed in the GPA.
  • Graduate students may not elect to use the pass/fail grade option.

To request a Cancellation of the Pass/Fail Option students should complete the Cancellation of the Pass/Fail Option form.

Deadlines for canceling the audit option can be found in the Academic Calendar.

For detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to change the grade mode(s) (ie Audit and/or Pass/Fail) of your course(s), please refer to Understanding Grade Modes.


Incomplete Grades

An incomplete (“I”) grade signifies that all course requirements have not been met. Students with questions regarding the issuance of an “I” grade should contact the instructor of record for the course in question.

Please review the UWF's Incomplete Grade Policy in full.

  • Students receiving an incomplete grade ("I") will have until the end of the next semester to complete the course. If a grade change form is not submitted by the instructor by the end of the next semester, the incomplete grade ("I") will be converted to a failing grade ("F").
  • The student is responsible for submitting a written request to the department for a grade change or extension prior to the end of the last instructional day of the semester.
  • Extensions may only be approved for extenuating circumstances and only for a maximum of 12 months.
