UFF’s Grading System


Final Grades

0.00 to 3.90 – Failed
4.00 to 5.90 – Supplementary Evaluation (VS)*
6.00 to 8.90 – Pass (Good)
9.00 to 10.0 – Pass (Excellent)

The Supplementary Evaluation is an extra exam where the student needs to achieve a minimum grade of 6.00 to be approved. In this case, the grade column of the transcript will show the grade received on this exam, and there will be an * on the column VS of the Official Transcript.


Hours System

Universidade Federal Fluminense adopts an hour-based system where each course can have three types of hourly workload represented on the Official Transcript by the letters T, P, and E.

  • T – Number of Theoretical (Teoria) hours;
  • P – Number of Practical hours;
  • E – Number of Internship (Estágio) hours.


CR (Grade Point Average)

The Coeficiente de Rendimento – CR (Grade Point Average) will be calculated based on all grades received by the student since he/she joined the University by using the following formula:


G = Grade of the course / H = Courseload in hours


When the student is submitted to the Supplementary Evaluation (VS), the Grade used on the calculation of the CR is the average between his Final Grade on the course (before the VS) and the Grade received on the Supplementary Evaluation (VS).


Transfer Courses

Courses taken outside Universidade Federal Fluminense and recognized as part of the UFF program are represented by the symbol DISP on the Grade column of the Official Transcript. These courses are not included, however, in the calculation of the CR (Grade Point Average).


AC (Supplementary Activities)

Supplementary Activities are mandatory to all degrees at UFF, and they are represented by the symbol AC on the Grade column. These activities are not considered in the calculation of the CR (Grade Point Average).
