RULES & REGULATIONS

The IBMS Grading System

At the end of each semester, you will be given a grade for the quality and quantity of your work in a given class. A student’s academic standing is determined by the number of credits (classes) completed and his or her GPA. A student’s GPA is calculated by multiplying the number of units (credits) attempted in each course by the grade points earned per course. All grade point totals are added together. This sum is divided by the total number of credits, creating a final mean value.

The traditional American grading system works on a 4.0 system. Please see the listing below for specifics.
