We use a grading system consisting of letter grades A, B, C, D, and F. Plus and minus grades are not used. Status codes may be used to indicate a state or condition of a course on a student's record for which a grade has not been awarded. Status codes include:
An "S" preceding a grade denotes that the course is an Academic Skills Course.; Therefore, an "SA" equals an "A", a "SB" equals a "B", etc.; Academic Skills courses do not count towards graduation requirements, but credit hours are earned for the courses.
Quality points are numerical values indicating the quality of student performance in a class. For example, an A is worth 4 quality points, a B is worth 3 quality points, etc.; Grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing hours taken into the total number of quality points.
