Grade Policy


Grade Policy

Students’ work will be evaluated by faculty members, and course grades will be assigned. Examinations, written papers, oral assignments, and/or fieldwork may constitute the basis for the grade awarded in class. Faculty members generally outline the details for determining grades on the course syllabus. Often, any weighted factors for assignments will be outlined in the syllabus. Grade points are assigned to each grade and used in the calculation of the student’s grade point average for the term’s work or cumulative average. The grades and point values are:
