A, B, C, D, F, and WF (withdraw/failing) are computed in the accumulative average. WP (withdraw/passing), WS (withdraw/satisfactory), WU (withdraw/unsatisfactory), I (incomplete), S (satisfactory) and U (unsatisfactory) are not computed in the accumulative average. A grade of S is considered a C or better. A grade of U is comparable to a D or F. Transfer and proficiency credits are not computed in the accumulative average.

Incomplete Grade

Failure to correct an "Incomplete" grade in the specified amount of time will result in the grade being changed to "F". The course must then be retaken in its entirety. Making up this deficiency is the student's responsibility.

Colleges of Business, Health Professions, and Occupational Professions - A grade of "Incomplete" for one or more courses for a quarter is a deficiency which must be corrected by the end of the 2nd week of the following quarter.

College of Applied Technologies - Students who receive an "Incomplete" grade in a technical course must complete course work before the following session ends. Students receiving an "Incomplete" for a general education course must complete course work by the second week of the following session.

Record Changes

Grades or attendance records will not be changed after six months have elapsed from the end of the term in which the grade or absence was received.

Calculating Your G.P.A. - Quality Points

To figure the grade point average (accumulative), multiply the number of credits by the quality points. Then divide the total quality points by the number of credit hours.

A (94-100) = 4.0
A- (90-93) = 3.67
B+ (87-89) = 3.33
B (82-86) = 3.00
B- (80-81) = 2.67
C+ (77-79) = 2.33
C (72-76) = 2.00
C- (70-71) = 1.67
D+ (67-69) = 1.33
D (62-66) = 1.00
D- (60-61) = .67
F (59 and below) = .00


Grade Review

A student may petition for an academic review of a grade by the following procedure:

  1. The student initially requests of the instructor a verbal explanation of a grade or evaluation.
  2. If the student is not satisfied with the instructor's explanation, he or she may appeal to the Dean of their college, who will confer with the Vice President for Academic Affairs/Provost who makes the final decision.


MBA Grades

Students will be issued a letter grade based on criteria outlined in each course syllabus. All courses receiving a grade below a C must be retaken. Students must maintain a cumulative 3.0 g.p.a. for graduation. If a student's g.p.a. falls below a 3.0, a warning will be issued and the student won't be eligible for graduation. No probation or suspension will be issued to students within the program. Students will be counseled by the MBA Director on maintaining a 3.0 g.p.a.
