XXF Policy

The implementation of the XXF grade strengthens the College’s commitment to academic integrity. In a student culture that increasingly treats cheating as a casual offense, the XXF clearly announces that the College of Charleston will not tolerate academic dishonesty.

The existence of the XXF grade will itself help convince our students of the importance of academic integrity and the consequences of violations. Nevertheless, given the serious implications of the XXF for students, the College will be obligated to discuss this policy continuously and thoroughly, and to continue teaching students about the rules of scholarship.

The Policy Transcript Notation document linked below was written in April 2006 and went into effect August 2006. The references to XF in this document are now XXF and are the same as XXF.
