What Is an "FD" Grade?
FD grades stand for "FD – Failed - Disciplinary." FD grades are one of the possible sanctions of an Academic Code of Conduct violation. If you receive an FD grade, you will fail the course and be administratively removed from the course. This will have serious implications for your GPA and Academic Standing. Additionally, it will be recommended that you repeat the course as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ON AN F-1 VISA: FD grades will have serious implications on your visa status. Please see this policy from the International Student Office: FD Course Grade and F1 Implications
