Official grades are reported and recorded on a student’s official academic record at the end of each semester on the basis of the following system:
|Grade||Quality Points Per Credit|
|I||Incomplete: a temporary grade indicating that specific arrangements have been made with the instructor to complete work by a later date not to exceed 210 days. An “I” which is not removed by the prearranged date is replaced with an “F.”|
|DG||Deferred Grade: Satisfactory progress in a course that extends beyond a single semester.|
|W||Withdrawal or administrative withdrawal.|
|P||Successful completion of a pass/fail course. These hours are not included in point average calculations.|
|LP||Low Pass (D+, D, D-) in a Pass/Fail course; hours are not included in GPA calculations|
|L||Stopped attending. The grade of "L" may be assigned to the student who stopped attending a course without officially withdrawing. The grade of "L" will be computed as an "F" for purposes of the student's grade point average.|
|MG||No grade supplied by instructor.|
|AU||Audit registration; no credit hours attempted or earned.|
|*||Quality points count toward GPA; credits do not count toward degree credits earned.|
|~||Quality points do not count toward GPA; credits count toward degree credits earned.|
|#||Quality points do not count toward GPA; credits do count toward degree credits earned|
|Course has been repeated: Neither credit nor quality points are included in cumulative totals.|
|Latest completed attempt: Only latest graded registration affects cumulative totals.|
To Calculate a Grade Point Average
To calculate a grade point average (GPA), divide the total number of quality points earned by the total number of credit hours graded on an A-F basis.
Once grades have been posted to their academic records, students can see them by selecting Unofficial Transcript from the drop-down box labelled "Other Academic" in their MaineStreet Student Center.
Students needing assistance to use the system should call the First Stop at (207) 255-1470 or the Registrar’s Office at (207) 255-1223.
Academic Records Changes
Considerable care is taken to ensure that courses and grades entered on a student's permanent record are accurate. Any student who suspects an error has been made should contact the Registrar's Office immediately. Records are assumed to be correct if a student does not report any discrepancies to the Registrar's Office within one year of the completion of the course. At that time, the record becomes permanent and the student has no further right to appeal.
A student readmitted to UMM after a period of two or more years may choose to request grade forgiveness for all previous work done at the institution. To qualify, students must be matriculated and enrolled at the time of the request, and have completed at least 15 credits at the institution with a minimum GPA of 2.5 after the point of readmission.
If grade forgiveness is approved, the student retains past credits only for courses in which a grade of C- or higher was received. The effect of all prior quality points is nullified and the student's cumulative GPA is reset to zero. All prior grades earned continue to be displayed on the student's transcript, though they do not affect the student's cumulative grade point average.
To apply for Grade Forgiveness, eligible students must complete the Request for Academic Forgiveness and submit to the Registrar's Office. Students must specify on the application the semester before which all grades will be forgiven.
