Students must achieve a Quality Point Average of 2.00 or better in order to graduate from any of our program.


GPA Calculation

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is an internationally recognized calculation used to find the average result of all grades achieved for your course. For each course completed the student receives grade points according to the scale below. The student’s final GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits attempted. MOMBI follows a 4.0 grade point system as follows:

GRADING SCALE

Grades will be determined by some or all of the following:

The student’s attendance and participation in class

♦ Assignments
♦ Projects and term papers
♦ Occasional written tests
♦ Final examination

MOMBI follows the 4.0 grade point system. The grades, grade points, and their interpretation are as follows:

 
    Letter             Percentage         GPA   
    A 94 -100 4.00
    A- 92-93 3.67
    B+ 90-91 3.33
    B 84-89 3.00
    B- 82-83 2.67
    C+ 80-81 2.33
    C 74-79 2.00
    C- 72-73 1.67
    D 65-71 1.33
    F 0-65 1.00

Meaning of Letter Equivalency

A - Exceptional work, outstanding or surpassing achievement of course objectives.
B - Good work, substantial achievement of course.
C - Satisfactory, essential achievement of course objectives.
D - Passing: deficient in some respects but meets the minimum standards for obtaining credit in the subject.
F - unacceptable work, failure of course objectives.

The following grades may also be assigned:

E (Extension) – Student received an official grade extension. This grade counts as an “F” until the work is completed. This grade is assigned by the Supervisor/Instructor after a student has submitted the necessary paperwork and the  Director of Studies has approved the extension.

FA (Failure due to absences) – This grade counts as an “F.”

N (No grade) -The grade of “N” is neutral and does not negatively affect a student’s GPA. The Supervisor/Instructor assigns this grade when he or she cannot submit the final grade due to the Supervisor/Instructor’s circumstances.

W  (Withdrawal) -This grade is assigned by the Supervisor/Instructor when a student officially withdraws from a course. The grade of “W” is neutral and does not negatively affect a student’s GPA.

X (Absent from the Final Examination) – This grade should remain only until the student has an opportunity to make up the final exam. This grade counts as an “F” until the exam is taken. The grade will become an “F” if the student does not take the exam by the deadline for grade extensions.

In certain courses, Credit / No Credit, instead of a letter grade, may be assigned by the Supervisor/Instructor.

Director of Studies are responsible for establishing final grades for students. Students should resolve any questions about a final grade with their Supervisor/Instructor as soon as possible after it has been issued. Students have three weeks (21 days) from the date a grade is issued to dispute it. After three-week grace period, the final grade will stand. Any changes after that period will be determined by the Director of Studies and accompanied with the respective fee.
