Grade Distribution FAQs
Grade distribution reports provide the distribution of grades given by instructors across all courses available in a specified academic semester. Students can use these reports to assess the performance of past students in historic course sections as a data point for consideration during the class selection process.
All grade distribution information is provided directly from the colleges through a public records request. Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, Government Code Section 6253(c), the distribution of grades attained at public institutions should be public record.
TransferCamp aims to update grade distribution for each college annually. Once the spring semester of a given year is finalized, TransferCamp will request updated grade distribution data from each college. However, due to data processing fees imposed by select colleges in meeting our public records requests, some grade distribution updates for the latest academic year may take longer than expected to process.
TransferCamp works directly with college administration and the district to obtain grade distribution information. While not every college is responsive to our public record requests, we maintain efforts to obtain grade distribution for all community colleges in the United States.
