Disrupted study

At the end of each semester faculty Assessment Boards approve final course grades for students. These committees are responsible for the fair treatment of students and this includes recognising disrupted study. Failing grades including ‘D’ or Did Not Complete (DNC) and can impact on students’ academic progression and Grade Point Average (GPA).
The University has special grades for assessments and courses that reflect that study has been disrupted.

DS/DSN-Fail grade for courses

DS denotes a student receiving a final grade of D for a course completed during a period of disrupted study and DSN denotes a student receiving a final grade of DNC for a course completed during a period of disrupted study. The DS and DSN grades will be excluded from a student’s GPA calculation and may not impact on a student’s progression.
