Students in the Anatomical Education Ph.D. Program must receive a grade of B or better in all required courses and must maintain a cumulative GPA of B (3.0) or better. Students receiving a grade lower than B in any course will be referred to the Student Progress Committee (SPC). Course grades lower than a B may result in dismissal from the program. 

The academic status or grading of student performance is determined at the end of each course and/or semester. Grades are determined based on scores and faculty evaluations collected throughout the course, as detailed in the course syllabus. It is the student’s responsibility to read course syllabi to insure understanding of course grading policies. 

For all courses, the course director will submit a grade report that includes the percentage grade achieved in the class and a letter grade – either A, B, C or F. Some course may be designated as Pass/Fail. At the end of every semester, students will receive an unofficial copy of their transcript. The GPA on the transcript is calculated based on the letter grades (A, B, C, or F) for each course. A = 90-100%, B = 80-89%, C = 70-79%, F < 70%.
