Grading Scale Criteria
Grades support the student’s learning experience by providing precise meaningful feedback that clearly informs the student of his/her academic progress.
Grading consists of class participation, written and practical assignments, exams, hands-on techniques, homework, special projects, and attendance in all classes, timely completion of all classes and clinic sessions. To graduate, the student must successfully complete all required courses and clinics.
The School’s Education Department maintains student grades. The student may review grades via the computer. If desired, the student may make an appointment with the School’s Education Department to review grades.
Letter grades are based on the following numerical grading system.
A 90-100 4.0
Science grades are determined based on quiz averages, the midterm, and final exam. A comprehensive written final exam is given in all major courses. Esthetics courses, including Clinic, will be graded based on the 100-point scale. Esthetics courses will have quiz grades, midterm exam grade, final exam grade and practical exam grades figured into the final course grade. Clinic will have grades for each appointment, reflective of the clinic objectives.
Incomplete grades - The student must complete all requirements by the beginning of the next quarter or the final grade will be an “F”.
A missed quiz will result in a grade of zero and cannot be made up. Midterm and final exams will be taken during class on the scheduled day of the exam. Missing a midterm or final will result in having to schedule a make-up exam for midterms and/or finals. The student must give at least 4 week’s notice of exam conflict, in addition to paying a $50 fee.
