Evaluation and Grading System

Evaluation in the form of official grades will be provided by the faculty and will be recorded on the student's permanent transcript at the end of each semester. Details of evaluation procedures are given in each course syllabus. Grades are based on the faculty's evaluation of the student's competencies as demonstrated by the requirements of the syllabus for each class.

The grading system is based on a 4.0 scale. Letter grades are given, each of which has the following quality points assigned to it:

Letter Grade

The table below shows how many credit hours are earned in each competency unit, and how many are accumulated at the end of each competency unit. In order to maintain a B average (CGPA = 3.0), a student must earn 36 quality points in each Competency Unit, except the summer when he/she must earn 18 points. The cumulative GPA (CGPA) at the end of each Competency Unit is calculated by dividing the accumulated quality points by the number of accumulated credits earned at the end of each competency unit.
