Only courses completed at Salisbury University or through certain approved cooperative programs, and assigned grades of A, B, C, D and F, are used in the grade point average (GPA) calculations.
Quality points are assigned to letter grades such that A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0. Quality points for individual courses are computed by multiplying the quality points assigned by an individual letter grade by the credit hours received for the course.
The cumulative GPA is calculated by dividing the total quality points earned (QPTS) for all semesters by the total applicable credit hours (QHRS).
Students who leave the University with a poor academic record may apply for academic clemency upon their return after not attending Salisbury University for at least five calendar years.
Students requesting academic clemency may petition to have the effects of up to 16 credit hours of D and/or F removed from the calculation of GPA.
The actual grades of D and/or F grades which were received will remain on the academic record beside the courses in which they were earned but will be noted as removed from the GPA calculation with an X.
When clemency is granted for D grades, the previously earned credits for those grades will be deleted from the student’s academic record.
“I”/Incomplete – is a grade received because of non-completion of a course due to circumstances beyond the student’s control. The “I” automatically becomes an F if coursework is not completed prior to mid-semester of the next full semester for which the student is enrolled, or at the end of one calendar year, whichever is earlier.
IP (In-Progress) - is a grade used for grading ongoing projects and independent studies; will be converted to letter grade upon completion.
Students repeating a course covering the same/similar content will receive credit for the last occurrence of the course only, provided the course is graded A, B, C, D, F, or I. Repeated coursework is noted as such on the student record, remains in the student’s attempted hour calculations, and is removed from the earned hour, quality point, and GPA calculations.
Exception: If a student receives an F grade in a course due to an Academic Misconduct Violation the course grade remains an F and cannot be replaced by repeating the course again.
Salisbury University has established the Student Academic Grievance Policy to give students a forum in which to address concerns related to academic matters (e.g., grade disputes and professional program dismissals when they do not involve an academic integrity violation).
