ACADEMIC TERMS AND DEFINITIONS

The following definitions apply to symbols utilized in lieu of or in addition to 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 three 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 that 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 13

th

week. After the 13

th

week, a

student may not withdraw and is awarded the grade earned.

TRANSFER CREDIT POLICIES

TMU grants credit for college-level coursework from other colleges and universities based on the following criteria:

1.

The student must have good standing at the institutions previously attended. Students who have been dismissed

or suspended from another college for disciplinary reasons must request that a letter be sent by the dean of the

college involved, detailing the reasons for such dismissal.
