Grades are reported using a four-point system.
The following are included in the Grade Point Average (GPA):
|A||4.0 Excellent||C||2.0 Satisfactory|
|B||3.0||D||1.0 Less than Satisfactory|
The following grades are not included in the GPA:
A Audit: Indicates permission for a student to participate in a class without the intent of earning academic credit. Audits in a course are allowed on a space-available basis. An audit status may not be changed to full registration nor may full registration be changed to an audit status after the course begins.
I Incomplete: Given by the instructor if at least a majority of the course work has been completed. In this event, the student is required to contact the instructor as soon as possible, certainly no later than 30 days after the semester, to determine how the work will be made up. The grade of Incomplete will remain open through the following semester (summer sessions excluded) at which time, if not changed by the instructor, the grade of Incomplete becomes a Failure.
NG No Grade: Indicates that the faculty member did not submit a grade at the time that grades were rolled to a student’s academic history.
P Pass: Given for successful completion of certain internships, practicums, community service courses, and other courses. This grade has no impact on the GPA but the course may be counted toward graduation.
W Withdrawn: Indicates withdrawal from a 15-week course by Friday of the 10th week of classes. The withdrawal period for courses meeting fewer than 15 weeks will be prorated accordingly. Students who withdraw from the College any time after the first week will receive Ws for all their courses. Failure to officially withdraw will result in a failing grade on the student’s transcript.
Repeating a Course
A course in which a student received a “C-” or below may be repeated without prior approval. A course in which a student received a grade of “C” or higher may be repeated only with prior approval. Waiver to Repeat a Course forms are available in the Registrar’s Office.
