We believe it's crucial that students at DU feel that our grading processes and policies are fair, equitable, and transparent. To that end, the Office of the Registrar is proud to provide guidance on the University's grading policies. Below, you'll find links to different sections of our site that cover key grading topics. The University of Denver does not calculate class rank for undergraduate or graduate students except for the Sturm College of Law.

On this page, you'll also find information on how COVID-19 has impacted our grading policies. If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Office.
