Grades

The grading system used on transcripts provides for 16 letter grades consisting of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, CR (credit), NC (no credit), I (incomplete), W (withdrawal) and NR (not reported). All students whose names remain on the official class roster, prepared at the end of the add/drop period, are assigned one of the above grades.

Grades Quality Points Earned
A 4.00
A- 3.70
B+ 3.30
B 3.00
B- 2.70
C+ 2.30
C 2.00
C- 1.70
D+ 1.30
D 1.00
D- 0.70
F 0.00

Two calculations of grade point averages appear on the student’s transcript: a semester grade point average and a cumulative grade point average. No quality points are assigned to CR, NC, I or W.

Mid-term Grades

At the mid-point of the fall and spring semesters, mid-term grades are submitted by faculty to the Office of the Registrar. These grades are not retained in the permanent record, calculated in the GPA or recorded on academic transcripts. The purpose of mid-term grades is to provide students with a report of their academic progress. Mid-term grades are accessed using the following grade structure:

  • S = Satisfactory (grade of C or higher)
  • U = Unsatisfactory (grade of C- or lower)
  • F = Failing
  • NR = Not reported or Not required
