What is the MFG Grade?

The MFG grade indicates "Missing Final Grade."

This grade is being used for state reporting purposes. DESE requires that if a student was reported as being scheduled into a course there needs to be a final grade for the course. Transcript records missing a final grade were updated with MFG.
