Dear List,

This is a question for those that work with your local student information systems. If it isn’t you, could you let me know who at your school I can contact?


How does your system award credit for year long classes? Is credit awarded by semester or by the year? A student passes both semesters and gets credit, a student fails both semester and receives no credit, a student passes one semester and fails the other, but passes for the year, do you award a full credit? How does your SIS calculate GPAs? Is that bases on the two semester grade or year long grade?


I am working with our new system and I have run into this issue. I’m curious about what other schools do.
