Semester Grades

Courses are broken down into parts called semesters.  Semester grades determine whether the course is passed and credit is earned.  Each semester grade is made up of three grades: two quarter grades and the exam grade.

2 Out  of 3 is a Must!

To receive a passing grade for the semester, the student must earn a passing grade in: One quarter grading period and the semester examination or both Quarter Grading Periods.

All Grades Aren’t Equal

Each quarter grade equals 37.5 percent of the final semester grade.  The final exam grade equals 25 percent.
