CALENDAR SYSTEM
Since Fall of 1985, Skidmore College has provided instruction on a semester calendar, which consists of fall and spring semesters and two summer sessions. Credit hours for each class are indicated on the transcript proper. Prior to Fall 1985, instruction was provided on a 4-1-4 calendar with no grade points given for plus and minus. In instances where a student's transcript includes both calendar types, credit hours earned prior to Fall 1985 have been converted to 3.33 credits for each unit of instruction.

HONORS

REPEATED COURSES
If a course for which the student received a grade of "F" is repeated at the College, both grades remain on the record and both are included in the cumulative GPA. With the exception of designated programs, credit granted by Skidmore for work taken at another institution or by examination is not included in the GPA.

SATISFACTORY/UNSATISFACTORY
The College criterion for Satisfactory is the equivalent of a "C" or better. S/U grades do not affect the grade point average, but a student receiving an Unsatisfactory will not receive credit for the course.
