Grades and Academic Reports

Evaluation of student progress is made at both mid-semester and at the end of the semester. At mid-semester, all grades are reported to first-year students and only non-quality grades (D, F, NQ, and I) are reported to upper-class students. Grade reports are sent to the students at their home addresses at the end of each semester. To designate the degree of scholastic achievement the following grades are used: A (superior); B (above average); C (average); D (below average); F (failure); and I (incomplete). Albright uses plus-minus qualifiers to indicate work at the upper or lower end of each letter grade range; C-, D+, D, and D- are considered below average. Allowing flexibility for the instructor, the approximate numerical equivalents for these grades are:

  • 90 and above: A
  • 80-89: B
  • 70-79: C
  • 60-69: D
  • below 60: F

For purposes of determining a student’s grade point average, each grade is assigned a quality point value.

  • A+/A = 4
  • A- = 3.67
  • B+ = 3.33
  • B = 3
  • B- = 2.67
  • C+ = 2.33
  • C = 2
  • C- = 1.67
  • D+ = 1.33
  • D = 1
  • D- = 0.67
  • F = 0
