To pass a course, students must:

  • Meet course attendance requirements: See Attendance Policy in this document for more information.
  • Complete required assignments & course work as defined in the course syllabus.
  • Achieve an average grade of 70% or better on all assignments and coursework. This average is calculated by totaling the best score from each required exam, assignment, etc.

In online courses that allow for students to take exams multiple times, students are limited to a maximum of three attempts. The highest score will be factored into the average final grade. All exams are available via the learning management system.

Grading scale

A 90-100%
B 80-89%

WX Official withdrawal without academic penalty, using the online form. 
N Incomplete: course work not completed

All grades are permanent, except "N or NG" which are temporary grades used to indicate that the student's work in a course has not been completed. An N or NG grade must be removed, and a grade substituted by the instructor. If a change is not reported, the N or NG grade automatically becomes an NF. Without the approval of the instructor, the assistant dean, and the dean, no grade higher than C may replace the NG.

*P/F grades are currently reserved for specific courses. Students should refer to the course syllabus for applicable grade scale.
