Administrative grade assigned temporarily when an instructor has been delayed in submitting the final grade.


Doubtful. Becomes either "D" or "F" after examination or special audit.


Temporary grade awarded when the disposition of the final grade requires further evaluation and when the absent or incomplete grades are inappropriate. "PEN" is also used to facilitate the implementation of the Procedures for Imposition of Sanctions whereby colleges must hold a student's grade in abeyance pending the outcome of the academic review process. The "PEN" grade will not lapse to FPN; final determination of a grade will depend on final evaluation by the instructor or the outcome of the college's academic review process.
