Grade Point Averages: The numbers in parentheses represent index values used to compute grade point averages. The number of credits/semester hours assigned to the course multiplied by the grade index received gives the grade points earned for that course. The sum total of grade points earned divided by total credits attempted constitutes the student’s grade point average.

2. “ IN” grade for the Spring Semester or the Summer Sessions must be satisfied by the sixth week of the following Fall Semester. “IN” grades that are not resolved by the deadline date will automatically be converted to “F” grades.
- Students who find it necessary to withdraw from the University for medical reasons must arrange an appointment with the Director of Counseling &Wellness Services (Gilligan Student Union Building-308, 201-200-3165). However, in the event that the Director of Counseling& Wellness is unavailable to process a medical withdrawal the request should be directed to the Dean of Students (Gilligan Student Union Building-127, 201-200-3525).
At the time of the meeting with the director the student should present: 1) a letter requesting a medical withdrawal for the semester and 2) a letter from an appropriate healthcare profession on letterhead stationary/prescription pad. The healthcare professional should state the health condition of the student (details are not necessary) and specifically state that the student should not continue school for the remainder of the semester.
The interview is used to review the situation of the student and to inform him/her of the process for returning to school.
An in-person interview is not conducted in some instances because students are physically not able to come on campus. In such instances the information is faxed to the Counseling Center (or when appropriate, the Office of the Dean of Students).
After the interview a formal letter is sent to the Registrar (along with the original letters the student submitted) requesting that the student be withdrawn for the semester. Copies of the letters are maintained in the Counseling Center. The student is also sent a copy of the letter.
Medical withdrawals are not processed after the semester ends since at that time grades will have been submitted by professors and it becomes an academic issue.
Requests for medical withdrawals after the semester ends should be directed to the appropriate college dean (Arts and Sciences, Education, or Professional Studies).
R Grade: This grade will only be used in Academic Foundations courses. The grade is given to a student who demonstrates progress in the course but not sufficient progress to warrant a passing grade. The student who receives an “R” grade must either repeat the course or demonstrate sufficient progress to participate at the next level of course work. Students are allowed to receive one “R” grade per course. When the course is repeated, an “F” grade results in dismissal from the University. Letter grade (A through D) issued in Academic Foundation courses (catalog number less than 100) are not calculated in the grade point average.
NOTE: The grades “W” (Withdrawal), “P” (Pass) and “R” (Repeat-Academic Foundations) do not affect the grade point average; however, an excessive number of “W” grades can adversely affect a student’s eligibility to receive various types of financial aid, and “R” grades are limited to Academic Foundations courses. “R” grades do not count toward degree requirements or graduation.
