Based on a semester that typically runs 14 – 15 class weeks, the number of required classes per semester is 9. This means that the 9 classes is the minimum number of classes a student can attend and still qualify for a grade of an “A” (along with the instructor’s own grading criteria).
The grading system for audio classes is:
9 and more classes: May qualify for an A; contingent upon instructor’s other grading criteria.
8 classes: May qualify for a B but cannot qualify for an A. B is the highest grade possible when combined with other grading criteria.
7 classes: May qualify for a C but cannot qualify for an A or B. C is the highest possible grade when combined with other grading criteria.
6 classes: May qualify for an I (Incomplete) if the instructor is willing to make up classes. This is at the instructor’s discretion. Otherwise, the student will receive an F.
