About Grades and Credits

At Lower Columbia College students receive both letter and points-per-credit grades. Each credit class is offered for a predetermined number of credits, generally one credit per weekly contact hour of lecture or two weekly hours of laboratory contact. Points, or numerical values, are assigned to letter grades. At the end of each quarter, students receive both a letter grade and its corresponding number of points for each course in which they are enrolled. Courses receiving a grade of P (Pass), W (Withdraw), R (Retake), N (Audit), X (Expunged), or I (Incomplete) are not included in the GPA. Grades and their points are as follows:

  • A 4.0 points per credit (exceptional performance)
  • A- 3.7 points per credit
  • B+ 3.3 points per credit
  • B 3.0 points per credit (above average performance)
  • B- 2.7 points per credit
  • C+ 2.3 points per credit
  • C 2.0 points per credit (average performance)
  • C- 1.7 points per credit
  • D+ 1.3 points per credit
  • D 1.0 points per credit (minimal performance)
