Grading System
Academic Terms and Definitions
The following definitions apply to symbols utilized
in lieu of grades:
Audit (AUD).
Audit students are those who receive
no credit, but wish to attend lectures in a course, or
participate in musical ensembles or private lessons,
without any responsibility to take examinations,
complete homework or papers or practice hours,
or be evaluated. Audit registration will appear on
the student’s record, but will not be included in
computing a full-time academic load. Students
may audit a maximum of 3 units per calendar year.
Audit-only students must submit an application for
admission and pastor recommendation to the Office
of Admissions.
Credit (CR)
. Credit is measured in semester units.
A semester unit represents one recitation period (55
minutes) per week for one semester of 15 weeks and
assumes about two hours of outside preparation for
each recitation period. Credit units of particular
classes are given with each course description.
Failure (F)
. No credit or grade points given. This
policy means that all units attempted which are shown
on the transcript as F will be charged against the
student with a value of 0.00 grade points. The effect
of this will be to lower the overall GPA.
Incomplete (I)
1. An Incomplete will be granted only upon
submission of a completed
Incomplete Contract
to
the Office of the Registrar.
2. Any Incomplete not finished within the terms
of the
Incomplete Contract
will lapse into the
grade designated on the
Incomplete Contract.
No-Credit (NC).
No credit.
Pass (P).
Indicates that the student passed a course,
but credits do not count toward GPA or graduation,
such as MA072, 082, 090.
Quality Points (QP)
. Quality points are assigned
in order to determine the student’s scholastic average.
Quality points of a given grade are multiplied by the
number of semester units of credit given in each
course.
Withdraw (W)
.
Withdrawal from a course from
the third week of classes through the twelfth week.
After the twelfth week a student may not withdraw
and is awarded the grade earned.
