Grading Procedures

Your grade point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the point value of each grade by the credit value designated for each course. The sum of these figures is divided by the number of credits. A minimum of 2.0 GPA is needed to maintain satisfactory academic standing and is required for graduation. GPAs are figured on a 4.0 scale. The point equivalents are listed below. It is the student's responsibility to consult with their instructors as to their progress.

Grade Appeals Process

Students who have complaints related to course grades should address those complaints first with the instructor of the course. If the student is not satisfied with the resolution, the student may then go to the appropriate Program Dean. If a resolution is not achieved with the appropriate Program Dean, a student may submit a formal complaint via the online Student and Community Complaint Form.
