20 Grade Grade Points/SCH Interpretations A 4 Excellent B 3 Good C 2 Average or Fair D 1 Poor (barely passing) F 0 Failure P Passing I Incomplete NC Non-Credit W1 Student Initiated Drop* W2 Instructor Initiated Drop* (Drop during drop period) W3 Administrative Withdrawal W4 Student Withdrawal W5 Withdrawal (lapsed incomplete)* *See drop explanations Grade Point Average (GPA) Grade Point Average (GPAs) are determined by dividing each student's total number of grade points by their total number of SCHs attempted. Grade points are determined by the grade awarded in a course and the value of that grade in terms of Grade Points and the number of Semester Credit Hours (SCH) associated with the course. The example demonstrates how the GPA is calculated. Grade Points are not awarded in developmental courses (e.g., MATH 310 and ENRD 402) and grades earned in these courses (whether let- ter grades or number grades) are not included in the com- putation of GPAs. Transfer hours will be used to determine the number of hours attempted but will not be included in the computa- tion of students' cumulative GPAs. Course Grade SCHs x GPs = GPA BIOL 1406 B 4 x 3 = 12 ENGL 1302 A 3 x 4 = 12 KINE 1101 A 1 x 4 = 4 ENRD 401 0 0 x 0 = 0 HIST 1301 Withdrawal W x 0 = 0 Totals 8 28 GPA = 28/8=3.5 Grades for Repeated Courses When a student repeats a course, the total attempted SCH remains unchanged and the grade earned in the most re- cent attempt is used in the computation of the GPA. The original grade will remain on the student's permanent record. Students who withdraw from a course during a re- peat attempt do not lose the original grade or credit from the first prior attempt. Evaluation of Transfer Credit Credit for college level work completed at regionally accred- ited institutions listed in the Higher Education Directory will be awarded according to the following conditions: 1. The Office of Admissions and Records determines the total number of SCH that students may transfer to Lee College from other institutions. Students who are pursu- ing associate degrees and have earned at least 15 SCH at the College should request that their transfer work be evaluated. Transcript evaluation request forms are avail- able in the Admissions and Records Office. Students seeking certificates of completion who have transfer work in the same program of study should request that their transcripts be evaluated. Official transcripts will not be returned to students. 2. Credit for courses equivalent to those listed in the cata- log will be given for credit earned at regionally accred- ited institutions of higher education. 3. A minimum of 25 percent of total coursework required by the student's degree program or 50 percent of the coursework required by the student's certificate of com- pletion program must be taken in residence at Lee Col- lege for the student to become eligible to receive a certificate of completion or an associate degree from Lee College. Transfer students should consult with a counselor regarding their transfer hours and degree pro- grams. In addition, 25 percent of the student's major field of study semester credit hours must be taken in res- idence at Lee College. 4. Students may enroll for as many as 18 SCH (semester credit hours) each long semester or 7 SCH each summer session without special permission. Because of state laws, students may enroll in a maximum of 3 SCH during a holiday or mini session. Students who wish to enroll for more than 18 SCH dur- ing the long semester or more than 7 SCH each summer session must have approval of an instructional official. These credit hours include simultaneous enrollment at other institutions for a part or all of a term. If the simulta- neous enrollment includes online learning classes, proc- tored exams must be taken in the Lee College Counseling Center unless another location and proctor are approved in advance by the Instructional Deans or Vice President of Learning. External credits resulting in overloads may not be applied to a student's degree plan if the overload was not pre-approved.
