In Fall 2011, UTSA adopted a voluntary plus/minus grading system. Please keep the following in mind:
Check your syllabus: Because the plus/minus grading system is optional, professors may choose whether or not they would like to use the new plus/minus scale or the standard A, B, C, D, F grading scale. To find out which grading scale your professors are using, check your course syllabus.
Grade Points: Refer to the following chart for information on how grade points will be assigned in the Current Letter Grade system and the new optional Plus/Minus system.
University-Wide Requirements: No courses in which grades of less than "C" (below 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) were earned may be applied to a graduate degree or doctoral degree, nor may courses for which the grade of "CR" was earned by examination be applied to minimum degree requirements. Credit for selected internships and practica in which a grade of "CR" was earned may be applied to minimum degree requirements upon approval of The Graduate School.
Transcripts: Your transcript will include a notation indicating the adoption of the voluntary plus/minus grading system.
Policy: The full policy for the plus/minus grading system, including how it will affect minimum course grades, academic probation, and academic dismissal, can be found in the UTSA Information Bulletin.
If you have questions about the plus/minus grading system, you may contact your professor or graduate advisor of record.
