Computation of Scholastic Standing

St. Louis College of Pharmacy uses the 4.0 grading system to determine grade point average. The GPA is calculated by multiplying the number of credit hours for a given course by the number of grade points for the letter grade received, totaling the grade points earned, and dividing that total by the number of credit hours attempted.

Grades in advanced pharmacy practice experiences enter into the final grade point average. Passing grades are indicated by the letter grades A through C. Any grade below C is indicated by the designation No Credit (NC), and the rotation must be repeated.

A grade of Incomplete (I) can be given by a faculty member if the student is unable—due to extenuating circumstances such as illness or injury—to complete all of the required coursework during the semester. Ordinarily an I is not to be given to allow a student to redo coursework previously completed in an effort to improve the student’s grade in the course. Incomplete grades normally must be made up no later than 10 school days following the beginning of the next semester; otherwise, the I is converted to an F.

Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to attend a class without officially registering for the course online or in the Registrar’s Office. Academic credit will not be awarded if the student is not registered. It is the student’s responsibility to see that he or she is properly registered for all courses being taken.
