These letter grades, descriptions, and points are used in all programs at Hawkeye Community College. An instructor or program may modify the grading system. Instructors are expected to inform you of their grading scale and procedures at the beginning of each course. The grading scale used by an instructor must be used for all students in a course and to all sections of a multi-section course.

Faculty determine the weight and value of final grades in their courses and are not obligated to use plus and minus grades. Hawkeye will record letter grades as reported by the instructor.
