Graduate Grading System
The semester credit hour is the basic unit used by Limestone College to measure student work. One semester credit hour represents in student learning outcomes and achievement the equivalent of one classroom hour of instruction and two (2) out-of-class hours of work for 15 weeks. A three-credit-hour course traditionally represents three (3) in-class hours and 6 out-of-class hours each week for 15 weeks. Online programs (8-week sessions) use identical student learning outcomes and course expectations as the equivalent traditional 15-week courses and represent 6 in-class hours and 12 out-of-class hours each week. Limestone College faculty assign credit hours based on an equivalent standard of work to lab work, studio work, practicum courses, and internships.
The academic standing of a student in the various courses is indicated as follows:
|Passing Grades||Percentage||Grade Value|
|A||94% and above||4.0|
