Grading for Undergraduate Courses

A final grade must be submitted for every student on your rosters, including those who do not take the final exam or have stopped coming to class. A grade of 0 should be assigned for missing assignments or exams, and the overall resulting grade should be submitted. It's complicated for our office to resolve a final grade when it has been left blank.

The grading system at Saint Louis University follows a 0.0 to 4.0 grade-point scale. Grades are assigned as specified in the catalog.

For specific clarifications on grading, consult your academic division chair.
