One measure of student achievement is the number of students who perform satisfactorily in a course. The percent of students earning As, Bs, Cs, or Ps/DPs at HCC by academic year is illustrated in Figure1. A complete breakdown of grades for these academic years is provided in Table 1 and a key to the letter grade codes is provided in Table 2.
Table 1. Grades Earned by Academic Year.
|Total Duplicated Headcount||16,223||14,833||13,530||12,570||10,629|
*A "successful grade" is an A, B, C, P, or DP.

|NG||No Grade Reported by Instructor||-|
|P||Satisfactory Completion (Passing)**||-|
* Student must register and pay fees next semester (for developmental courses only; students cannot earn a letter grade of D, F or WF in a developmental course). If a student attends classes until the end of the semester but is not successful (making an A, B, or C), the student will receive a letter grade of CT; if the student withdraws or stops attending prior to the end of the semester, the student will receive a letter grade of ‘W’.
** Applies only to courses taken pass/fail.
***Applies only to Developmental courses. Grades earned in developmental courses do not count toward a student's GPA.
