When a student enrolls in their first college-level course, he or she is initiating a new academic permanent record; the college transcript. Students enrolled in the Excelsior Program should understand the implications of starting a college transcript and that their Excelsior Program course grades are included on their permanent Suffolk transcript.
Poor grades on a student’s transcript can have an impact on a student's academic future. For students planning to continue their education at Suffolk, unsatisfactory performance or course withdrawal can also put academic standing and future financial aid eligibility in jeopardy.
Student grades in courses offered through the Excelsior Program conform to the Suffolk grading policy and will be included on the student's permanent transcript. The letter grades below are the only acceptable Excelsior Program grades.
