83-91 B-Above Average 3 QPS

70-82 C-Average 2 QPS

62-69 D-Low Passing 1 QPS

0-61 F-Failure 0 QPS I-Incomplete 0 QPS

WP-Withdrawal while passing 0 QPS

WF-Withdrawal while failing 0 QPS

*QPS = Quality Points per semester


In addition to papers returned, a grade report card will be given to each student at the end of each semester. On request, progress reports will be given to those who provide support to the students.


Any student making below a “C” average (2.0) for any term will be placed on probation throughout the following term. He must remove probation within that time or he will be suspended for the following term. Those who are thus suspended may be readmitted after a lapse of one term, subject to approval of the Director and faculty. Any failures must be removed by repeating the course, or by completing a satisfactory project approved by the Director. “WP” designates withdrawal while passing the course. “WF” designates withdrawal while failing the course. Permanent records will be kept by the school.


1. Students receiving VA educational benefits must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.75 each semester.

2. A VA student whose CGPA falls below 2.75 at the end of any semester will be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two consecutive terms of enrollment. If the VA student’s CGPA is still below 2.75 at the end of the second consecutive term of probation, the student’s VA educational benefits will be terminated.

3. A VA student terminated from VA educational benefits due to unsatisfactory progress may petition the school to be re-certified after attaining a CGPA of 2.75.
