Grading System


Return to: Rules, Regulations, & Policies  

Grades assigned at Aims Community College can be found in the Grading System Policy.

Grade Point Average

A student’s grade point average (GPA) is computed according to the following formula:

Number of credits of ”A” multiplied by 4; plus
Number of credits of “B” multiplied by 3; plus
Number of credits of “C” multiplied by 2; plus
Number of credits of “D” multiplied by 1;
Number of credits of “F” multiplied by 0; then divided by total number of credits accumulated.

Only the credits accumulated and grade points earned in college level courses at Aims Community College are used in computation of semester and cumulative GPAs which appear on grade reports and transcripts. Courses numbered below 100 do not count for college credit or in the grade point average. Courses graded “S” count for credit, but are not used in the grade point average.

Academic Fresh Start 

Students who do not meet academic standards and who have not attended Aims for two calendar years or longer may be qualified for academic relief under Academic Fresh Start. Specific information about this can be found in the Academic Fresh Start Policy and Procedure.
