Grades are assigned to report student academic achievement. Instructors use sound judgment and fair methods in determining grades. They inform their students at the beginning of the term about the course requirements and evaluation criteria. Any time students are unsure of their progress, they should talk to their course instructor. Instructors submit grades at the end of the course. The following grades and corresponding grade points are used at Nicolet College:
