Approved By: Board of Trustees
Category: 3 - ACADEMIC SERVICES
Section: 05 - STANDARDS OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Credit Courses

Community College of Beaver County will utilize standard criteria to demonstrate the performance standards for all students registered in credit courses.  Student grades will be based on a progressive four (4) point scale with the grade of “D” representing the lowest passing grade. Use of this system is designed to standardize the calculation of grade point averages for students at the end of each period of enrollment and an overall cumulative grade point average. In addition to the standard letter grades (A-F), other grades may be awarded to identify the students’ end of course status. The standard grading system for credit students will include the following:

A

Superior (4 grade points per credit hour)

B

Above Average (3 grade points per credit hour)

C

Average (2 grade points per credit hour)

D

Below Average (1 grade point per credit hour)

F

Failure (0 grade points per credit hour)

AU

Audit

W

Withdraw

AW

Administrative Withdraw

I

Incomplete

R

P

Non-Credit Courses

In addition to the grading system defined for credit course enrollments, the College will award grades to designate a student’s completion status for enrollment in selected non-credit courses. Where it is determined by the administration that grading is appropriate, the following grades will be used and posted to the student’s transcript.

CR

Successful Completion of the Course

NC

Unsuccessful Completion of the Course

Honors Designation

In establishing the College’s grading system, it is the desire of the Board to make provision for the recognition of students whose academic performance is exemplary.  It is also the desire of the Board to have the recognition of academic achievement noted to the student record maintained by the College.

The Board directs the President to develop procedures and systems for the assignment, collection, maintenance, and integrity of student grades.  The procedures shall include a process for student grade appeals and shall define the standards for recognition of exemplary academic performance.  All final grades will be maintained as part of the student’s permanent academic record.
