UP (Unsatisfactory Progress)
UP grades (used by the School of Dentistry) remain on a student’s transcript until the course sequence concludes with a final grade.
UP grades are not changed prior to the conclusion of the course (even if subsequent quarters are graded SP) and cannot be addressed via the Removal of Provisional Grade petition.
If a student passes the course, the Office of the Registrar converts all UP grades to SP grades. If the student does not pass the course, the UP grades remain on the transcript.
IP (In Progress)
The IP grade is a placeholder grade for courses extending beyond one quarter.
The Office of the Registrar converts IP grades to the final grade after the course sequence concludes with a final grade.
