Program & Degree Requirements
Students must successfully complete (receive a passing grade) in at least 80% (eight of ten blocks) of the offered courses.
A passing grade is completion of a course’s specifically outlined requirements at a “C” (75%) level. Students who have not completed work at this level will receive a NP (not pass) for the course.
Passing with Honors
A passing with Honors grade is completion of a course’s specifically outlined requirements at an “A” (95%) level.
Graduating with Honors
In order to graduate with honors, a student must receive an “A” or “pass with honors” in at least six of ten modules.
Graduate Credit Waivers
For courses that have a Suffolk University public management graduate course equivalent, graduate credit waivers may be available for students who complete the specifically outlined graduate level course requirements at a minimum “B” (85%) level.
In the event of extenuating circumstances (such as a medical problem or job relocation), a student may request a grade of "I," which means incomplete. Granting of an incomplete grade is at the professor’s discretion and can only be granted if 50% of the required work has been completed. By comparison, and for similar reasons, a student may request an incomplete from the overall program from the program director. All incomplete work must be completed within one calendar year or the course or overall certificate grade changes to NP (not pass).
