Grade reports are available to students with an active Student ID and Password online through WebAdvisor. Students who require a copy of their grades (via an FDTC Transcript) may print one from the College's WebAdvisor or request an official or student copy from the Registrar Services Office, either in person or by mail.
If a student feels that he/she has grounds for challenging a grade, the appeal must take place within the semester following the term in which the grade was received. Example: A Spring semester grade may be appealed during Summer or Fall term; Fall grades may be appealed during Spring term; Summer grades may be appealed during Fall term. The appeal must begin with the instructor who issued the grade in question.

Grades may be changed by an instructor only within one term following the initial assignment of the grade. After one term has lapsed, grade changes from the previous term will not be allowed. The following grade changes will NOT be made: "W" or "WF" to any letter grade or "I". Exceptions to this policy can made only by the Vice President of Academic Affairs, upon request of the division Associate Vice President.
1. Grade changes are initiated by the instructor and must include a brief written explanation and justification for the change.
2. The instructor and the appropriate AVP must sign the grade change form.
3. After the form is signed, it is sent to Registrar Services for electronic processing and filing in the student's permanent record.
If a student repeats a course, all grades will be entered on the student's permanent academic record. The higher of the grades will be included in the Grade Point Average.
All coursework attempted will be calculated in the assessment of academic progress for student financial aid purposes.
A student may repeat a course no more than two times. Exceptions to this policy can be made only by the Vice President for Academic Affairs, upon request of the division Associate Vice President.
Certain departmental requirements may limit the number of times a course, whether passed or failed, may be repeated.
