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.
