COURAGE STRENGTH FORTITUDE
To complete degree requirements and be eligible for graduation, all students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0. Each course used to satisfy the degree major requirements must be completed with a grade of “C” or better. Exceptions to this policy will be limited to elective courses and must be approved through the departmental Academic Standards and Regulations Committee.
To obtain a two-year degree, a student must complete a minimum of thirty (30) credits at Medgar Evers College, including at least eighteen (18) credits in the major. For a baccalaureate degree, a minimum of thirty (30) credits must be completed at Medgar Evers College, of which at least twenty-five (25) must be in the student’s major area of study.
To earn an Associate degree in two academic years or a baccalaureate degree in four years, a student needs to complete an average of 15-16 credits each semester. To obtain additional credits, students may enroll in the Summer or Winter Sessions. Academic Advisors/counselors will assist students in planning their academic programs. A student is permitted to carry a maximum of eighteen (18) credits per semester. Students who wish to carry more than 18 credits must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and obtain the permission of the student’s Department Chairperson, Dean of the School, or Provost. The maximum number of credits a student is permitted to register for during the fall or spring is twenty-one (21) credits. Students may register for a maximum of eight (8) credits per Summer Session and six (6) per Winter Session. Students on Academic Probation may be limited to a reduced number of credits in order to meet academic requirements.
Veterans are advised to consult the Veterans’ Counselor in the Admissions Office, located at 1665 Bedford Avenue, to determine their eligibility for Veteran’s Credits, which cannot exceed eight (8) credits. All Veterans Credits will be evaluated by the Admissions Office. If a Veteran student attends another accredited higher educational institution, these credits may also be transferable.
Students shall enroll in courses according to the general numbering system:
1. 100 Level Courses are designed for Freshmen
2. 200 Level Courses are designed for Sophomores
3. 300 Level Courses are designed for Juniors
4. 400 Level Courses are designed for Seniors
It is, therefore, expected that:
1. 100 Level will be taken before 200 Level Courses
2. 200 Level will be taken before 300 Level Courses
3. 300 Level will be taken before 400 Level Courses
4. All Lower Division Requirements should be completed by the time a student is in the junior year or has completed sixty (60) credits
The method by which students are evaluated for grades, the frequency of examinations, and the consequences of missed examinations, is the prerogative of the instructor in each course. Instructors shall provide students with this information in the syllabi on the first day of class.
Grading System and Grading Policies
At the end of each course, students are assigned grades by the instructor. The following grading symbols are used.
