When grades are posted as letter grades the letter grades are posted and the numeric grades do not come over into Registrar's Office. Once they are posted, Registrar's Office looks at the numeric equivalent for the letter grade not the grade the student had previously in FAWEB. For example: A student receives a 52 for a marking column grade in FAWEB. A 52 falls into the range of an F on the translation table in Registrar's Office (see example of translation table below).

When grades are posted as Letter Grades, the numeric grade in FAWEB is left behind. The letter grade of F is posted to Registrar's Office. From that point on that F is considered a 59 because that is the numeric equivalent on the translation table. Thus, the student received 7 points. To prevent this loss in accuracy, do not check post as letter grades when posting grades. This will post the numeric grades from FAWEB to Registrars Office. These numeric grades can be shown as Letter Grades on Report Card, Transcripts, and reports. Once they are posted Registrar’s Office looks at the numeric equivalent for the letter grade not the grade the student had previously in FAWEB.
