Early Clinical Experiences
P - Pass
F - Fail
IP - Incomplete
The grade point average (GPA) is the sum of earned grade points divided by the sum of credit hours passed and
failed. Students are required to remediate all courses within a block where the student's grade falls below 70
percent. Students may be required to remediate or complete a curriculum where the student's grade falls in the IP
(In Progress) status. If the student successfully completes the remediation exam with a 70% or higher score, they
will receive a 70% for the final course grade. If the student receives less than 70% on the remediation exam, they
will receive an F for the course and be referred to the Promotion Board. The remediated course grade will not be
higher than 70%, regardless of the exam score achieved.
If a student repeats an entire academic year, depending upon the circumstances, repeat courses may be recorded
with the new grade earned. In cases where the grade falls within the F range, or there is a failed remediation of a D
grade and the student is given an F for failure to successfully remediate, or the student fails to remediate an IP grade
within the appropriate time period, the student will be referred to the Promotion Board to determine the
appropriate action to be taken. All students with F grades are referred to the Promotion Board.
Campus courses are eligible for the receipt of all traditional grading assignments. For the first two years, most
courses have a traditional letter grade (A, B+, B, C+, C, and D, and F) and are calculated into the GPA. Early
Clinical Experiences are awarded a pass / fail grade.
