PRECLINICAL YEARS (M1-M2) GRADING
Courses will be graded via a letter grade (A, B, C or F). Each letter grade, for the purpose of calculating a GPA, is assigned a numeric value. The GPA is calculated by multiplying the numeric value of the course grade by the number of course credits and then dividing the total points by the total credits taken.
The Pass–No Pass grading policy is only applicable to those courses that are graded on the pass or fail basis and is not figured into the GPA. It does not apply to those courses that are graded on the letter grading scale. Cumulative GPA will be based upon the grades earned during the first, and second professional years only.
|A||4.0||89.5 - 100|
|B||3.0||79.50 - 89.49|
|C||2.0||69.50 - 79.49|
|F||0.0||Less than 69.50|
|P (Pass)||Not Counted in GPA|
|P*||Not Counted in GPA||Remediated Pass|
|I (Incomplete)||See Below|
Incomplete (I): A student who does not complete the course because of excused reasons will receive an incomplete. Six weeks after the end of the term, the incomplete will revert to a failure under most circumstances.
Withdrawal (W): A student who takes a leave of absence or withdraws from the course or program prior to the midpoint of the term or course, as designated in the syllabus, will receive a W on the transcript. Withdrawing after the specified date will result in a WP or WF, based on the earned grade to date.
CLINICAL CLERKSHIPS (M3-M4) GRADING
Final Clerkship grades are reported as Honors, High Pass, Pass, Fail. The students must refer to their respective campus’s Clerkship Manual for all information pertaining to grading.
