Grading Policy

Grading Policy
Individual faculty members determine the grading policy for each course. Faculty members clearly state in their course syllabus the specific criteria by which the grade will be assigned, including the relative weight of assignments, papers, examinations, attendance and other assessments. Only the faculty member has the authority to change grades. The following grading system is in effect at California Arts University.
