The grade in a course represents the degree to which the student learning objectives have been demonstrated by the student. Factors other than those in the student learning objectives and/or about which instruction has not been provided as part of the course may not be considered in the calculation of the grade. Academic and professional performance issues that are not in the course objectives may be communicated to the students through means other than the course grade.

Instructors assign letter grades based on student performance. The manner of grading for each course, including the means by which final grades will be determined, is documented in each course syllabus. Pluses and minuses are not part of the official grading system and are not figured into a student's grade point average. See the Academic Policies

Students receiving a NC, X or W grade may still be liable for paying tuition, and these grades may affect your GPA. Please see the Tuition Refund Policy
