Grading and Unit Requirements

Courses taken in the College are to be reported in terms of Passed/No Record. The grade Passed shall be strictly reserved for work of satisfactory quality. For each course in which he/she earns a grade of Passed, the student shall receive from one to six units of credit, as determined by the instructor of the course. Courses for which the grade of Passed is inappropriate are removed from the student's record.

Courses taken outside the College of Creative Studies will be graded according to the grading system of the college in which the courses were taken. Students must maintain a 2.0 grade-point average in courses taken for letter grades outside the College of Creative Studies.

Each unit of credit earned is counted toward graduation; 180 quarter-units of credit qualify the student to be evaluated for graduation with a bachelor of arts degree or a bachelor of science degree in the College of Creative Studies.
