Grading Information

Your Term Grade

Each student earns only one letter grade at the end of each term, and one letter grade for the course at the end of the year. Each term grade for Chemistry 821M is based on the work completed that meets an established standard by the end of the term. Successful completion of four core modules is required to earn a grade of B− or higher. Students earn higher grades by successfully completing choice modules. Each module completed successfully earns one point toward the term grade. Term grades are based on the point scale as follows:

6 points A
5 points B+
4 points B−
3 points C
fewer than 3 points <C
