Grading: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, MCC students will have the option to choose between receiving a traditional letter grade or receiving a designation of Satisfactory/Pass/Unsatisfactory for each course taken this semester. We will be communicating the following information with students soon:
At the end of the semester, instructors will enter earned letter grades (A through F). These grades will be permanently kept by MCC, however, students will have the option of requesting that a Satisfactory/Pass/Unsatisfactory grade be displayed in the transcript, as follows:
> Substitute an "S" for earned grades A to C indicating a student's progress was Satisfactory for the course requirements
> Substitute a "P" for earned grades C- to D- indicating a student Passed the course
> Substitute a "U" for an earned grade of F indicating a student's progress was Unsatisfactory for the course
> While both S and P signify earned course credit and are excluded from GPA calculation, S grades are more likely to be eligible for transfer to another institution (pending acceptance by the transfer institution). U grades indicate that a student was unsuccessful in the course; no credit would be awarded, and this grade is excluded from GPA calculation.
Between May 20 and August 1, 2020, students may choose to select S/P/U for some or all of their grades for the spring 2020 term. Thereafter, students may request that their original letter grades be reinstated at any point until their graduation date. No changes to the grades as posted on the transcript may be requested after graduation.
Billing/Payment: Spring Courses Only - The college has delayed sending dual enrollment bills to students/families. All bills are now set to be mailed out on April 14th. The new payment deadline is set for May 13th. Students/families will have the option to pay the bill electronically or through the postal mail. Instructions will be outlined on the bill.
