Grades are awarded to reflect the quality of student performance. Grade values are assigned on a 4.0 scale from A to F. In the event of extenuating circumstances, students may request an incomplete grade (I). Students must initiate this process and have faculty approval. Incomplete grades for regular sixteen-week courses should be completed by the fourth week of the next term or the incomplete grade will be changed to an F. Incomplete grades given for courses outside the regular sixteen-week schedule must be finished within four weeks from the end date of the course or the incomplete grade will be changed to an F.
The grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the number of quality points earned by the total number of credit hours attempted. For example, if a student earned one hundred (100) quality points and attempted forty (40) semester hours of work, the quality points would be divided by forty (40) to arrive at a 2.5 grade point average. All grades for repeatable courses will be used to compute cumulative GPA.
Grades are available through the online Entrata information system. Click here for instructions on accessing grades via Entrata.
