The following are the grades with their corresponding quality points:

A

Excellent Achievement

4.0 pts

B

Good Achievement

3.0 pts

C

Satisfactory Achievement

2.0 pts

D

Unsatisfactory

1.0 pts

F

0.0 pts

W*

WP*

Withdrew Passing

 

WF

Withdrew Failing

0.0 pts

I*

Incomplete

 

AU*

Audit

 

P*

Pass

 

S*

Satisfactory

 

U*

Unsatisfactory

 

NR*

Not Recorded

 

*No quality points awarded. Does not impact GPA.

WF

For courses offered during a full trimester, this symbol indicates that a student was making below a "C" when he or she withdrew from a course dropped after the 28th day of the trimester. A "WF" is considered a failure of the course. Any student who withdraws from a course after the 64th day of the term will automatically receive a "WF" for the course. Check Baptist College's Academic Calendar for specific dates.

 

For all other courses offered during academic terms of varying lengths, please refer to the course syllabus for withdrawal information.

D

This grade indicates unsatisfactory completion of the course and must be repeated at Baptist College of Health Sciences.

The following symbols are approved for use in the cases indicated, but will not be included in determination of the grade point average:

I

This symbol indicates that the student, for nonacademic reasons beyond his/her control, was unable to meet the full requirements of the course. All "I" grades must be removed within four weeks from the start of classes in the next trimester. Students with several "I" grades may be required to carry a reduced class load for the following trimester. "I" grades will be changed to "F" if they are not removed on schedule. Courses must then be repeated in order to earn credit.

W

For courses offered during a full trimester, this symbol indicates that a student withdrew from a course after the sixth day of classes and up to and including the 28th day of classes.

 

For all other courses offered during academic terms of varying lengths, please refer to the course syllabus for withdrawal information.

WP

For courses offered during a full trimester, this symbol indicates that a student was passing with a "C" or better when he or she withdrew from a course dropped after the 28th day of the trimester and up to and including the 64th day of the trimester. Check Baptist College's Academic Calendar for specific dates.

 

For all other courses offered during academic terms of varying lengths, please refer to the course syllabus for withdrawal information.

AU

This symbol indicates that a student was given permission to audit this course. After the last day of registration, students may not transfer from audit to credit or vice versa.

NR

This symbol indicates that the grade has not been recorded.

P

This symbol indicates that a student was awarded credit by CEEB, CLEP, correspondence course, or approved challenge exam with a "P" (pass) determination. In addition, this symbol is used to indicate that block credit has been awarded for completion degrees once a student has successfully completed the requirements indicated in the individual program policy. No quality points are awarded nor is the credit included in GPA calculations.

S

This symbol indicates that credit has been given for completion of degree requirements for a clinical course or other designated course.

U

This symbol indicates unsatisfactory performance in an attempt to complete degree requirements for a clinical course or other designated course.

Each attempt of a course is reflected on the student's transcript.
