WGU Transcripts include five possible marks:
The University does not calculate a grade point average (GPA).
One competency unit is the equivalent of one semester credit of learning in traditional grading systems.
Grades are transcribed upon completion of a course of study. A course(s) of study in progress will not appear on the transcript until the end of a term.
*Note: Students receive a grade of Pass, Not Passed, or Withdrawn on their permanent academic record and transcript for any course(s) of study for which they enroll in a term, regardless of whether they attempt an assessment. An earned Pass or Not Passed is not replaced with a grade of Withdrawn. Grades of Not Passed and Withdrawn are counted as units not completed and, as such, are counted against satisfactory academic progress. See Satisfactory Academic Progress (opens new window).
