For a full description of grading see the 2008-09 Academic Catalog on the BHSU website www.bhsu.edu/catalog.
To briefly summarize, the University uses the BOR system of an A through F structure with the following criteria:
- A: Exceptional
- B: Above Average
- C: Average
- D: Lowest Passing Grade
- F: Failure
Incomplete (I) or In progress (IP): An incomplete or in progress grade can only be assigned when a number of conditions are met, see the 2008-2009 Academic Catalog. A “Notice of In Progress or Incomplete Form” must be prepared by the faculty member and submitted to the Records Office. Please contact the Registrar's Office at 642-6567, if you have questions.
Assigning Grades: All grades are assigned on-line using WebAdvisor. The Records Office provides training for faculty to enter their grades online through Web Advisor. A deficient academic progress report is done at Midterm. Faculty are responsible for assigning a “DEF” to those students no later than three working days after the Midterm date for Fall and Springs semesters. Final grades are due on the third day following the last final exam.
Changing a Grade: Grades may be changed if a student has completed an “In Progress,” or when an error has been made by the faculty member in assigning the initial grade. Forms are available in the Records Office or in the Deans’ Offices.
