GRADING SYSTEM

An overall average of seventy percent (70%) is required for graduation and the following represents the equivalencies of the grades assigned.

  • Grades for each course are recorded
  • Grades are earned and recorded as follows:

 

A EXCELLENT 90—100%
B GOOD 80—89%
C AVERAGE 70—79%
F FAILURE 69% AND BELOW
I INCOMPLETE GPA NEUTRAL
W WITHDRAWAL  

 

 

  • An “I” grade may be assigned provided the student is passing the course and has completed a substantial portion of the coursework. The instructor and student complete and sign an “I grade completion form” and agree on the work to be performed and a deadline for completion of the work.  The “I” is changed by the instructor through the grade change procedure.  An ‘I’ grade not changed within three (3) weeks will be changed to an “F” and the course must be repeated.  Withdrawals and repeats do not affect the student’s GPA but does affect maximum periods.

 

Instructors are required to submit to the Director the final grade for each student whose name appears on the “Instructor Grade Report.”  Instructor grade reports are the official record of the students’ grades and are permanently filed at the Ashona Medical Institute.

 

The Student Grade Report at the end of each grading period indicates the student’s academic cumulative average.

 

GRADING PERIODS:

 

  • Progress reports semi-monthly
  • Grades monthly and at the end of all modules
