Grading Scale - Undergraduate

In general, the grading scale in the table below serves as the basic numeric standard that faculty use in evaluating student performance. Grading systems may vary according to discipline and instructor preferences. Some grading practices recalculate "on the curve," while others use only letter grades without assigning numeric values, and still other grading protocols may also exist. In all cases of variance from the standards below, the instructor will explain the grading system clearly on the course syllabus. When a standard numeric scale is used, the instructor will base grades on the standard below.
