Clinical performance is graded as Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U). A grade of “U” will be calculated into the GPA as 0 quality points. A grade of “S” does not affect the GPA.
Courses with both a clinical and theory component will be recorded on the transcript as the theory grade received unless the clinical grade is unsatisfactory. A student must pass both the clinical and the theory portions of the course. If the clinical grade is unsatisfactory, a grade of “F” will be recorded for the course and no quality points will be earned toward the GPA.
In clinical courses that do not have a theory component, a grade of “S” or “U” will be recorded. A grade of “U” will earn zero quality points and will be calculated into the cumulative GPA. If a student retakes the course and receives a satisfactory grade, the “U” will be replaced and quality points restored accordingly.
