Grades and Quality Points

The following grades become effective with the spring semester 2016.

The grading scales with the assigned quality points are as follows:


Quality of Work

Quality Points per Credit Hour

















PASSING (TEST VERIFIED, non-traditional)





























Note: A grade preceded by an asterisk indicates a repeat course which is not computed in the grade point average.

Grade point averages are computed by dividing the quality points by the graded hours attempted (for grades of A, B, C, D, F, and I). Beginning with the fall semester 1993, the last attempt only is used to compute the grade point average. Grades of A, B, C, D, F, and I are included in semester hours attempted and will affect the grade point average. Grades of IC, W, AU, CR, CT, and P will not affect the grade point average.

A grade of “I” (Incomplete) must be removed by the completion of the work within 30 days after the opening of the next semester; otherwise, it will be recorded as an “F”. A grade of “IC” must be removed by the completion of the work within 120 days; otherwise, it will be recorded as an “F”. A student may appeal a grade within a period of one academic year from the semester in which the grade was assigned. No changes to the transcript will be made after a twelve-month period unless a professor acknowledges in writing that an error in grade reporting has occurred.

Repeat Courses

For repeat courses, only the last attempt will affect the final grade point average. Previous hours attempted, previous hours passed, and previous quality points will not be considered, although they will remain on the permanent record. All grades from all attempts are recorded and remain on the transcript permanently. Alternative course credit (e.g. CLEP and DSST) will not replace a grade.  Additionally, grades of “AU” or “W” cannot qualify as replacement grades.

Students returning to Campbell to earn subsequent Bachelor’s degrees or in a Special/Visiting status after earning a Bachelor’s degree may repeat courses as part of the new program. A course repeated after a student has earned a Bachelor’s degree will not replace any attempts of the same course taken prior to graduation. The GPA calculation starts over after conferral of each Bachelor’s degree and only grades and quality points earned within that degree are included as part of the GPA. The repeat policy of last attempt counted will apply to all attempts taken as part of the subsequent Bachelor’s or Special/Visiting status. The GPA at the time of graduation is recorded for each degree earned and is a permanent part of the record which cannot be changed.


The Eight-Year Academic Forgiveness Policy

Campbell University has an academic forgiveness policy for which eligible candidates may apply. To be eligible, a candidate’s course credits must be at least eight years old. Under the terms of the policy, credit will be awarded (hours only) for courses for which the candidate earned a grade of “C” or better. Students will not be required to repeat courses for which they have earned a “D”; however, no credit hours toward graduation will be allowed for “D” grades. Under the terms of the eight-year forgiveness policy, failing grades will not be charged against a student’s grade point average.

Minimum Academic Standards for Satisfactory Progress

To be eligible for continued enrollment, students must have met the following cumulative grade point average on all college-level work attempted:

  1. Students who have attempted fewer than 48 semester hours must have a quality-point ratio of 1.400.
  2. Students who have attempted 48 but fewer than 78 semester hours must have a quality-point ratio of 1.600.
  3. Students who have attempted 78 but fewer than 110 semester hours must have a quality-point ratio of 1.800.
  4. Students who have attempted 110 but fewer than 130 semester hours must have a quality-point ratio of 1.900.
  5. Students who have attempted 130 or more semester hours must have a quality-point ratio of 2.000.

Students not meeting the minimum academic standards will be advised to attend summer school at Campbell to improve their grade point average.

N.B.I: Students of junior standing or less (64 semester hours or less) whose GPA falls below a 1.800 will be allowed to register for a maximum of 13.5 semester hours.

Academic Warning

An academic review convenes in May of each year to review the academic progress of undergraduate students. An “Academic Warning” is issued to any student who incurs a quality point deficit between 10 and 34.5 quality points. A student who fails to show progress toward graduation may receive more than one “Academic Warning” until such time as the quality point deficit is reduced in its entirety. However, a student who has not made satisfactory progress during any grading period may be suspended without further “Academic Warnings.”

Students who incur quality point deficits of 40 or more are normally declared “academically ineligible” for a minimum of one semester. Students who have been ruled ineligible for readmission may appeal to their respective dean.

To receive financial aid under Federal Title IV Programs, a student must be making “satisfactory progress” toward graduation as defined herein. In addition, all full-time students must pass an average of 9 hours each semester during the first two years and an average of 11 hours during the remainder of the undergraduate study.
