Grade Calculation

Grade point calculation is determined by multiplying the numerical grade equivalency 4.0(A), 3.67 (A-), 3.33 (B+), 3.00 (B), 2.67 (B-), 2.33 (C+), 2.00 (C), 1.67 (C-), 1.33 (D+), 1.00 (D), .67 (D-), 0 (F) by the credits earned for each course. Grade Points are then divided by credits earned for the terms to equal Grade Point Average. Satisfactory grades without a numerical equivalent are included in the total hours (TH) toward the degree, but are not included in the numerically graded hours (NGH) or grade point average.

First Year Mid-term Grades

First Year Day

Course instructors may use a number of different assessment methods for grading the students in their classes, including use of quizzes, one or more assignments (papers, memos, drafting exercises, simulations, oral exercises or presentations), class participation, mid-term examination, final examination, or final paper. This also includes following a traditional approach by offering a three-hour examination given at the end of the semester (or at the end of both semesters for year-long courses other than Legal Practice Skills). The instructor will notify the students of the grading method used.

Midterm examination grades will be reported to students, however, the midterm examination grades will not appear on the student transcript.

Grade Reports

Grades are posted on MySuffolk at a date and time specified at the end of each semester.
