Policy Statement

The college awards letter grades based on (numerical values) as well as grades of pass/fail. The grading scale for each program is recorded in the UTHSC Catalog and also provided on the course syllabus. The UTHSC Catalog outlines the student performance criteria for each program and the academic progress and promotions committee process. In the COHP, the program faculty are responsible for determining the grading scale. It is the responsibility of the instructor of a course to describe the method of evaluation of each course. Grades are not considered final until reported to the Banner system.
