Grading System - Undergraduate

The academic standing of a student is determined by the quality and quantity of his or her work. A student’s grades are based on the level of achievement in class work and by mastery demonstrated on examinations and other projects. Midterm grades are advisory; the semester grades determine actual academic standing.

Students’ grades are not mailed. Final course grades are posted on WebXpress at the end of each session and semester. If needed, students may obtain an official grade report by contacting the Registrar’s Office. GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the number of attempted credits.

The grading system for undergraduate students is provided below. (The grading system used for graduate students is described in the next section.)
