Grading Standards

Pass With Honors (PH)

The student completes all course work within the expected period and receives 100% on the examination and a “pass with no correction” on all Externship assignments.

Pass (P)

The student completes all course work and receives a score of 85% or higher on the examination and a “pass” on all Externship assignments.

Credit by Examination (CE)

A student who has received credit for a course by taking the examination and received a score of 85% or higher will have this credit applied toward his/her program. The transcript will reflect that this credit was awarded by examination.

Failure (F)

The student receives a score of 84% or lower on the examination and/or a “no pass” on Externship assignments. The course must be repeated to complete a program.

Incomplete (I)

The student does not complete all requirements of the course at the time of grading.

Incomplete grades will be given only when unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control prevent completion of the work in a course. Incomplete grades and arrangements for the completion of course work must be approved by the course faculty. In the absence of extenuating circumstances, remaining course work must be completed within three weeks of the targeted completion date or the incomplete grade automatically becomes a “Failure.”

Withdrawal (W)

The student voluntarily withdraws from the course or is dropped from the course.

 Students will be informed of their progress in each course on a regular basis by marks given on examinations, papers, other assignments and a final grade for the course

Repeating Courses

Any course may be repeated regardless of the grade earned. If a course is repeated, the transcript will note that the course was repeated.

Change of Grades

Grades submitted by faculty at the end of each course are not subject to revision on the basis of additional work or a new examination. If a student questions a final grade, the student should first discuss the grade with the Qualifications Secretary. If the student still feels the grade is not appropriate, the student may request a hearing before the Grade Review Committee.


Credits – a credit represents the work of at least 30 course, apprenticeship or internship hours. Grades and Quality Points – grades are given for each course attempted, based on the following numerical value and quality-point rating.


PH Pass With Honors (Excellent) 4.00
P Pass (Good) 3.33
