UNIFORM GRADING SCALE

The State Board of Education (SBE) adopted a Uniform Grading Policy (UGP) for South Carolina’s public schools in December 1999. That policy, which applied to all students who first enrolled in the ninth grade in the 2000–01 school year, was revised in 2007, 2016 (ten-point scale), and 2017.

Students taking courses for a Carnegie unit prior to the student's ninth-grade year may retake any such course during the ninth grade. In this case, only the ninth-grade retake grade will be used in figuring the student’s GPR and only the ninth-grade attempt will show on the transcript. This rule will apply whether the grade earned is higher or lower than the pre-ninth grade attempt.
