Grading System

All courses are recorded in terms of credits or semester hours. Grades are recorded by letter; grade points are used to compute averages.

A 94-100 4.0
A- 90-93 3.7
B+ 87-89 3.5
B 84-86 3.0
B- 80-83 2.7
C+ 77-79 2.5
C 74-76 2.0
C- 70-73 1.7
D+ 67-69 1.5
D 64-66 1.0
F <64 0.0


A course marked Incomplete (I) must be finished by the end of the next semester. If not, it will be graded as an F. No credit is given for a course in which the student receives an F. If the course is required, it must be successfully completed before graduation. A student may withdraw from any course or seminar not in the core curriculum up to the fifth week of the semester with the permission of his faculty advisor, his professor and the Academic Dean. The grade Withdrew (W) will then be recorded in the transcript.
