Grading Policies

Grading Policies

Teaching Personnel members are responsible to explain to the students all matters concerning grading.  If instructors have any questions or doubts about the grading policies of the College they consult their Program Coordinator or contact the Registrar's Office.

Teaching Personnel members are advised to be fair in grading irrespective of the pressure they might receive from some students.  Grades reflect student performance which is measurable, and are easy to understand by students.  Teaching Personnel make every possible effort to avoid giving questions in exams on material which has not been covered in class or otherwise assigned during the semester in question.

 

Averaging Grades

A Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) is determined for each student at the end of each semester. The grade point average (G.P.A.) is computed by multiplying the number of credit hours of each course by the grade points equivalent to the letter grade received and then adding them.  The sum total is then divided by the total number of credit hours for which the student has received a grade.  Grades reported as I, W, P or AU are not computed in the average.

 

Change of Grade

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar’s Office no changes are allowed, unless an instructor completes a Grade Change form, in which he/she explains that a legitimate error has been made in the calculation of a student’s grade.

 

Grade Report

Grade reports are issued at the end of every semester and sent via sms to all students. 

 

Grade Rosters

Grade Rosters are prepared by the Teaching Personnel members and are submitted to their Program Coordinator and thereafter to the Office of the Registrar. The Program Coordinator reviews the Grade Rosters.

Grades allocated for class participation, mid-term exams, assignments, final exams etc., are consistent with information provided on the course syllabus/outline.

The grades are announced to the students via sms.
