“S”, “U” and “IP” Grades
The S or U grade and IP grade will not apply only to specific courses determined by the appropriate departments and approved by the Vice-President for Academic Affairs. Such courses will not affect the Grade Point Average (GPA).
Certain courses at SUNY Broome Community College carry “credit equivalents.” This means that they do not give a student credit toward a degree at the college, but they are equivalent to the appropriate number of credits for one’s academic load. These courses are numbered below the 100 level.Examples:
- ENG 090 Basic Language Skills;
- MAT 090 Foundations for College Mathematics I;
- RDG 090 Reading Fundamentals;
- RDG 092 College Preparatory Reading;
- RDG 094 College Vocabulary Skills.
Credit Equivalent courses appear on the transcript as zero earned credit and are not calculated in the student’s GPA if letter graded.
Transfer credit may be earned by several means. Transcripts will show only those credit hours earned at other institutions that have been applied and accepted towards the BCC degree.
- College Proficiency (CP),
- Advanced Placement (AP),
- Credit Level Examinations (CLEP).
- Portfolio Assessment and special assessment of group sponsored learning are also accepted as transfer credit on department approval;
Transfer credits are not calculated in the GPA.

Full-time students who have a semester grade point average of 3.80 or better will be named to the President’s List. Such students must successfully complete a minimum of 12 credit hours and have no “I” grade for that semester. Courses which use the S or U or credit equivalent grade may not be among the 12 hours.
Full-time students who have a semester grade point average between 3.50 and 3.79 inclusive will be named to the Dean’s List. Such students must successfully complete a minimum of 12 credit hours and have no “I” grade for that semester. Courses which use the S or U or credit equivalent grade may not be among the 12 hours.

Students who graduate with a cumulative grade point average of 3.80 or better will receive the distinction of graduating with “High Honors” and those who graduate with a cumulative grade point average between 3.50 and 3.79 inclusive will graduate with “Honors”.
Honors courses appear on the transcript as “completed as an honors course”.
Repeated courses are noted as repeated in the succeeding semester(s) that the course is retaken.
Repeated courses are designated as follows in the “R” column:
- E – Excluded Repeat Grade
- I – Included Repeat Grade
Calculation of Grade Point Average
The grade point average is determined by (1) multiplying the number of honor points earned according to the letter grade, by the number of credits for the course to obtain the earned quality point for the course; (2) sum the quality points for all courses attempted and divide the total by the total number of quality hours.
A grade point average (GPA) is calculated for each semester the student attends and a cumulative summary is also shown on the academic transcript.
