Grading and Credit Hours

At the end of each course, laboratory, or rotation, a grade for each student will be submitted to the Registrar by the faculty responsible for the instruction. COP at MBKU uses a letter grading system. Student work is evaluated in terms of letter grades as follows:

Remediation: Students who remediate a course cannot earn higher than a “C” in that remediated course. The transcript would reflect the remediated course as an “FC” if the student successfully remediates the course. A grade of "FP" will be reflected on the transcript of a student who successfully remediates a Pass/Fail course.

All IPPE courses will be based on Pass/Fail criteria. All APPE courses are based on High Pass/Pass/Fail criteria.
