Grinnell uses the following grading system:
|S||Satisfactory (A-C grade without grade-point equivalent)|
All grades are entered on a student’s permanent transcript.
Grades are reported to students, their faculty advisers, and the vice-president for student services at the end of each semester. Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (often referred to as the “Buckley Amendment”), the College has a responsibility to maintain the privacy of academic records. Accordingly, the record of grades is only accessible online via password protected access to Pioneer Web. A student may request in writing that final grades be sent to the parent(s). Instructors are asked to inform the director of academic advising whenever a student’s work in a course becomes unsatisfactory during the semester.
