Beginning with Fall 2008, a new grade mode of "FA" has been added as a grade option. The "FA" grade is to be used for students who have stopped attending and are receiving a failing grade. This grade is not to be assigned to students who have over-cut classes but are still attending. JSU does not have a university-wide attendance policy. However, if a student has stopped attending and is failing a class, the appropriate grade to assign the student is "FA" (failure due to absences). Please include the last day attended when selecting "FA."
This grade mode helps us comply with federal financial aid regulations.
