MSN Grading Policies

Student Academic Progress

In order to graduate, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 at the time of graduation.

Online Courses

Online distance education courses are delivered through the university’s learning management system, Edverum, which provides students access to course instructions, syllabi, discussion forums, slides, and videos as well as exams and assignments for each course. Students participating in the university’s online distance education courses are expected to be in attendance, and complete all course activities, in accordance with the syllabus.

Course Remediation

Remediation for unsatisfactory course performance is required in the event a course is failed. The student will be expected to take an alternate exam on the material covered in the original course exam or complete a remediation assignment and will be considered to have successfully remediated the course when he/she has achieved a passing score on the alternate exam or assessment. Regardless of the score achieved on the alternate exam or assignment, the maximum grade that will be entered into the student’s grade record for any remediated course will be 75%. Remediation of any failed course must be performed within twenty-one (21) days of the end of the course. Students may take up to three (3) remediation examinations for a failed course. Throughout the program duration, up to two (2) courses may be remediated. A student will be dismissed upon third course failure.
