Penn Foster College Grading System

Degree and Undergraduate Certificate Programs

365体育官网Penn Foster College uses a number-letter system of grading, with number grades being assigned to examinations and letter grades to completed courses. The letter grade for each course is calculated by counting the average of the lesson examination grades as two-thirds of the course grade and the proctored examination grade as one-third. Letter grades are converted to quality points for the purpose of computing the Quality Point Average (QPA) for each semester and the cumulative Quality Point Average for more than one semester. Quality points range from 4.0 for an A grade to 0.0 for an F grade.

Your examinations and projects will be graded on the following scale:
