Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences 2018–2019 101 Examinations and Grading Policy on Returning Examinations In order that they may be a learning experience, as well as a means of evaluation, all examinations will be returned or made available to the students for review in a timely manner after the examination. Grading System At the end of each course, the course director or course professor enters the grade in WebSTAR and submits a grade for each student to the office of the department chair or program director. Each program determines the method of grading using pass ( P )/fail ( F ), numeric, or alpha (letter) grading scales. Grades will be issued for clinical rotations as well as didactic courses. Transcript Notations In all Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences programs, failing grades will be included in calculating the GPA for the term in which the grade was received and in the cumulative GPA. When a student passes a course by remediation examination, the minimum passing grade for that degree program will be recorded as the final grade followed by the notation E (e.g., C ( E )) next to the grade on the transcript. Transcript Notations (in addition to numerical and alpha grades) I Incomplete IF Incomplete Fail IP Incomplete Pass or In Progress IW Incomplete Withdraw W Withdrawal WP Withdrawal Passing WF Withdrawal Failing WU Administrative Withdrawal AU Audit P Pass PH Pass with Honors F Fail LE Leave of Absence E Exempt from GPA (If a student successfully repeats a failed course, an E may be noted after the prior failing grade, and the failing grade will then be exempt from GPA calculation)
