Grading

The Cleveland Institute of Art uses a dual grading system. This type of grading system allows instructors to separately evaluate a student’s academic merit as well as the effort they put forth during class and projects.

Accomplishment Grading 
A 4.0    
A- 3.7    
B+ 3.3    
B 3.0    
B- 2.7    
C+ 2.3    
C 2.0    
C- 1.7    
D+ 1.3    
D 1.0    
D- 0.7    
F 0.0    
P Pass    
W Withdraw    
I Incomplete    
AU Audit    
NG No grade issued by instructor    

 

Grades of “incomplete” must be made up for a letter grade by the end of the fourth week of the following semester in order to avoid failure of the course. Students wishing to change a course to audit status must do so by the end of the eighth week of the semester. An audited course carries the same tuition charge as a course taken for credit.

Calculating Your GPA 

To compute your grade point average (GPA):

GRADE (POINTS) X NUMBER OF SEMESTER HOURS
