A student’s performance in academic work is expressed in letters, which carry grade points used in calculating the cumulative grade-point average:

Letter Grade  Grade points per unit of credit

In computing the overall grade-point average, the total credits in which grades of A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, or F have been assigned is divided into the total number of grade points earned.

Other symbols are issued not factoring into grade points used in calculating the cumulative grade-point average:

*An S grade is a grade satisfactory to the professor and is normally equivalent to the letter grade of C- or higher.

A course for which only CR, but no letter grade, is given and a course in which an S or PR grade is earned will be included in earned hours but is not computed in the grade-point average.

Please refer to the Graduate Catalog or Undergraduate Catalog for general information and rules of the University Grading System.
