Students are awarded letter grades for work undertaken at Keiser University. Academic work is evaluated and grades are assigned at the end of each term to indicate a student's level of performance. Criteria upon which a student's performance is evaluated is distributed to each student at the beginning of each course in the form of a course syllabus. Grades are based on the quality of a student's work as shown by recitation, written tests, class projects, presentations, research papers and homework/outside assignments. The meaning of the grade notations is as follows and is based on a 4.0 scale:
Grades are posted online at the end of each term. Students receiving an Incomplete in any subject must meet with their instructor to discuss satisfactory arrangements to fulfill course requirements. Course assignments for an Incompletes must be completed within four (4) weeks of the beginning of the next term. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate School. Failure to complete the work within this four-week time period will, without administrative approval, result in a failing grade.
