Grading System

A student's progress within a program will be evaluated on the basis of the grade point average (GPA). For purposes of calculation, the grade point (GP) earned in a half-credit (0.5) course will be given one-half weight of that earned in a full-credit (1.0) course. Likewise, the GP earned in a quarter-credit (0.25) course will be given one-quarter weight of that earned in a full-credit course.
