Upon completion of their courses, students receive final grades. A final grade is a letter grade that carries with it a numerical value. Chesapeake College uses the scale as outlined below*. These grades and their point values are used to calculate a student’s grade point average (GPA).
|D**||Pass, without recommendation||60.00-69.99||1.0|
|N||Withdrew, first 3 weeks of class||N/A||0.0|
|T||Temporary/Crosses over semesters||N/A||0.0|
*Certain Chesapeake College academic programs use more stringent scales. Please see program requirements for details.
** A “D” grade in any developmental course does not permit progression into the next course. Additionally, the “D” grade is not a passing grade in some Chesapeake College programs. Please check individual programs for more information.
