Grades will be given on basis determined by the professor and announced to the class. These usually include daily work, tests, papers, the student’s attendance and participation in class, and the final examination.

The following table shows the grade point system in use:

Grade Percentage Points
A 95-100 4.00
A- 92-94 3.67
B+ 89-91 3.33
B 86-88 3.00
B- 83-85 2.67
C+ 80-82 2.33
C 77-79 2.00
C- 74-76 1.67
D+ 71-73 1.33
D 68-70 1.00
D- 65-67 0.67
F 0-64 0.00

In some courses professors may announce other percentage systems appropriate to the subject matter.

Grade Reports

Grades are posted at the end of the semester on a secure web site to which individual students have confidential access. Printed copies of grade reports are available on request from the Registrar. Disputes about grades must be resolved by the end of the next semester.  Grades that are not contested before that time are final.

Grades for credit transferred from recognized collegiate institutions are not considered a part of the student’s grade point average.

To compute grade point average, multiply the semester hours for each course by the quality point equivalent for the grade. Then divide the sum of these grade points by the sum of the semester hours.

Repeating Courses

Students may repeat courses in which they earned low or failing grades. The college has no limit on the number of times a course may be repeated, but the credit for the course can be counted only one time. The grade earned the last time a course is taken is the grade used in computing GPA. All previous grades on repeated courses are changed to R.
