The student shall be credited a total score and a corresponding letter grade by the end of each course.  The College uses a system of letter grades and equivalent grade points for evaluating the course work, as shown in the following chart:
Grades are calculated as a Grade Point Average (GPA) by dividing the sum of weighted achieved points by the sum of credit hours attempted.  An Incomplete ( I ) grade is not included until required work is completed and a grade is assigned.  Withdrawal ( W ) is given no grade or points and courses with W do not contribute to the GPA.  Only the highest grade of a course registered twice or more is calculated in the Grade Point Average (GPA).
If, after the instructor and candidate have conferred, the candidate presented an acceptable excuse for not completing the coursework on schedule, and the instructor has assigned a date by which time all course requirements must be completed, the candidate receives a grade ( I ).  If the coursework remains incomplete on the assigned date the grade will be changed automatically to a grade ( F ).
Withdrawal of a Course
The candidate may withdraw a course(s) within 3 weeks from the beginning of the semester as a condition for partial refund.
