(scroll to the bottom of this page to see the grading scale)
Grades are reported to the Registrar's office as letter grades such that a C would transfer to another college as a C, even if that college's letter-grade calculation differed.
Your final course grade will be rounded off to the nearest whole per cent prior to determination of your final letter grade. For example, 87.30% rounds to 87% and would be a B. On the other hand, 87.55% rounds to 88% and would be a B+. This instructor consistently rounds up all final course grades ending with 0.50 or higher. Thus, a grade of 72.50% is technically required in order to make a final letter grade of C. A grade of 72.49% is a C- (C minus).
In all cases, class participants receiving first and second class honors (ie. first and second place) in this class automatically receive an A. Therefore, a minimum of 2 class participants always receive an A in this class, although the number receiving an A is generally higher than this.
