Incomplete/Absence Rule
A student who receives an "IN" grade in an undergraduate course must complete the work by the end of the semester following the one in which the course was taken whether or not the student is in attendance. If the work is not completed, the "IN" becomes a "FIN" grade. Exception: An "IN" grade received in Fall"76, Spring '77, Summer '77 or Fall '77 ONLY will remain a permanent "IN", provided course work was not completed by the eighth week of the following semester. A permanent "IN" cannot be made up and cannot become a "F".

As of Fall 1988 the "AB" grade was discontinued. Students who received this grade prior to that date were expected to take a make-up examination. If the examination was not taken, the "AB" became a "FAB".

CUNY Attendance Policy
Faculty are required to indicate ...[each] semester or term either affirmatively that the student has attended or is otherwise active and participating in the course (e.g. by submitting assignments, attending a required study group, academic conference or tutorial) or negatively that the student has never attended any of the classes since the beginning of the term.

Hunter High School Credit
Course numbers which are followed by the letter "HS" or which appear under the heading "Hunter High School", are fully credited college level courses which are taken by Hunter High School students while they are still in high school.

School of Social Work
In the School of Social Work the H, CR, NC grading system is mandatory. These grades carry no quality points. The assignment of traditional letter grades in the School of Social Work may be arranged by consultation with the instructor at the beginning of each semester. A grade of credit includes acceptable graduate level work equivalent to a B or A. The grade of Honor, rarely given, signifies unusual or outstanding work, well above the A level.
