Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Cardiopulmonary Sciences 2018–2019 129 Attendance All of the BSRT Post-Professional courses are designed in distance-learning formats. Each student holds the responsibility to fulfill all class requirements, access recommended resources, and meet the appropriate deadlines for assignment submission and exams. Students are required to access and participate in their web-based class at least once per week in order to complete assignments. Grading Policies and Procedures Courses for the BSRT Post-Professional Program are graded on an alpha scale. Alpha Grade A A- B+ B B- C+ C Scale 4.0 3.7 3.3 3.0 2.7 2.3 2.0 Percent 94–100 90–93 87–89 83–86 80–82 77–79 74–76 C- D+ D F 1.7 1.3 1.0 0.0 70–73 68–69 67–68 66 and below In addition to alpha grading, the BSRT program may use transcript notations outlined in the Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences section of this handbook. For purposes of retention in the BSRT Post-Professional Program, any core-course grade below a C will be considered a course failure. No more than two courses may be passed through remediation or retake. All students receiving a failing grade in a required core course will be required to repeat the scheduled course and achieve a C or better at its next scheduled offering. Upon achieving a C or better in a repeated course, an E will be noted after the original grade, and that grade will then be exempt from GPA calculation. The new course grade will be noted on the transcript followed by an I indicating the new grade will be included in the GPA calculation. Additional tuition will be charged for any repeated course. A student who has experienced two or more course failures while in the BSRT Post-Professional Program may be dismissed from the program. Passing a course through retake does not negate the original failure for purposes of retention in the program. Assessment of Prior Experiences for Academic Credit Students matriculating in the BSRT Post-Professional Program will be granted a block grant of 45 credits transferred in as HLSC 1999 Prior Learning in Health Science.
