Grading System/Scale

Grading policies are clearly stated in course syllabi, which are given to the student in the first week of class. The student must achieve at least a C grade in every radiography class and maintain a 2.00 college-wide GPA in order to remain in the Radiography Program.

 The course grade will be determined by the following scale:

                92-100         = A

                84 – 91        = B

                75 – 83        = C

                70 – 74         =D

                Below 70     = F
