AU Audit These will show zero credits for a course on the transcript, will have zero points, and will not affect the GPA.  Note: Do not include these in the grade conversion chart.  Instead, include them in the Score Entry Type for the course mark type if they should be an option.

Note:  'P' and 'F' are optional for the grade conversion chart. 'P' and 'F' will always show as an available mark in the drop-downn campus and teacher portal, even if they are not in the grade conversion chart.  Typically, you would include F in the grade conversion chart if your school uses A-F letter grades.

Note: Any other grade that isn’t in the grade conversion chart and isn’t one of the special grades will be treated as a failure: The course will be considered “For Credit” and they will receive 0 GPA points.

Note: The meanings in the chart are optional.  You can specify alternative meanings in your transcript legend.
