How to Grade Your College Course
Utilize SLU's grading scale when assessing student achievement for college credit.
SLU Undergraduate Grading Scale
Since the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program offers university courses in the high school setting the SLU Undergraduate grading scale is utilized to assess student performance for their college grade in the dual course.
The undergraduate grading system at Saint Louis University follows a 0 - 4.000 grade point scale. Grades for the university transcript should be assigned as follows:
|A||4.000||High achievement and intellectual initiative|
|B+||3.300||Above average, approaching high achievement|
|B||3.000||Above average achievement|
|C+||2.300||Midway between B and C|
|D||1.000||Inferior but passing achievement|
Important Policies Regarding Grading at SLU
All student grades are permanently recorded on the student's University transcript. These records are federally protected documents by FERPA and therefore students should be aware of the following items regarding grades:
- Grades can not be changed arbitrarily.
- A grade change can be requested if sufficient documentation proves a grading error or outstanding circumstance as to why the grade was not entered correctly.
- Grade changes require a written request from the teacher assigning the grade, and approval of the 1818 ACC Program Director, and University Registrar.
- No course may be dropped from or added to a transcript after the completion of a course.
The grades earned through the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program are considered Saint Louis University grades, and will become part of the student's undergraduate GPA if the student enrolls at Saint Louis University as a full time student.
Students not planning to attend Saint Louis University should note that most institutions do not accept grades lower than a "C" for transfer credit.
