Grades are received and processed by the Registrar’s Office the week after the term ends.

All grades submitted by the deadline listed on the academic calendar (typically the Monday after the end of the term) will be viewable the following day. Students may log into their WebAdvisor and select My Grades from the Student Menu. 

Grade appeals

If you feel there has been an error in your grading, please review the Grade Appeal Policy in the undergraduate and graduate catalogs. Appeals must begin no later than 10 class days after the grade decision is made.


Honors are based on a student’s cumulative grade point average.

3.9 - 4.00: Summa cum Laude
3.7 - 3.89: Magna cum Laude
3.5 - 3.69: Cum Laude

Honors as they pertain to graduation: students must have earned at least 30 hours of coursework at Texas Woman’s University prior to applying for graduation to be eligible to graduate from Texas Woman's University with the distinction of having honors.

Grades of Incomplete

The grade of Incomplete is given only when a student has passing grades in 2/3 of assigned work, but, because of extenuating circumstances, cannot complete all of the course work by the end of the semester.  Extenuating circumstances include:

  1. incapacitating illness which prevents a student from attending classes;
  2. a death in the immediate family;
  3. change in work schedule as required by an employer; or
  4. other emergencies deemed appropriate by the instructor. A grade of Incomplete should not be requested, nor given, for lack of completion of work because of procrastination or dissatisfaction with the grade earned.

Once the appropriate work is completed, the instructor must submit to the Registrar’s Office a completed change of grade form, signed by both the instructor and the chairperson of the department. If no grade change is submitted within 365 days of the grade of Incomplete being assigned, the default grade indicated above will be applied to the course.

Any exceptions to the regulations listed in the student catalog pertaining to grades of incomplete require the approval of the instructor, department chair and the dean or director of the academic unit in which the course was offered.
