Class Rank

However , situations that arise outside the usual grading window may affect class rank . These include :
• Incompletes that are changed to grades
• A transfer student ’ s grades added to the system
• A dropped student ’ s grades removed from the system
• PSEO grades added when received from the postsecondary institution
