Rochester University uses a 4.0 grading system to grade the quality of course work and to determine the grade point average.  Faculty members assign letter grades based on this table:

 

98-100       A+     4.0         77-79        C+      2.3         Below 60    F      0.0

94-97         A       4.0         74-76        C        2.0                         I       Incomplete

90-93         A-      3.7         70-73        C-      1.7                        W     Withdraw

87-89         B+      3.3         67-69        D+     1.3

84-86         B        3.0         64-66        D       1.0

80-83         B-      2.7         60-63        D-      0.7

 

 

The Registrar translates letter grades to grade points in accordance with the table shown later in this section.

 

             A Excellent 4.00

             A-  3.70

             B+ 3.30

 

             B Good 3.00

             B- 2.70

             C Average 2.00

             C-  1.70

             D+ 1.30

 

             D Poor 1.00

             D-  0.70

 

             F             Failure              0.00

             W/F        Withdrawn/Fail       0.00

             W/P        Withdrawn/Pass     no point, no GPA impact
