A student must attain a final grade of "C" in all nursing courses required in the Nursing Program of Study. Student performance in the clinical practice components will be graded on a pass/fail basis; the criteria for determining acceptable performance are included in the syllabus of each clinical nursing course. Satisfactory clinical performance is required to earn a passing grade in a clinical nursing course. A student who is not performing at a satisfactory level will be so advised at mid-point in the course. A student must pass both clinical and didactic components to pass the course. A student enrolled in the RN to BSN must submit a Portfolio as a part of the Graduation clearance.

The grading scale for all nursing courses:

A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 75 - 79
D = 69 - 74
F = 68 or below
Clinical Courses: PASS/FAIL
