Report Cards will be issued at the end of each semester. Report Cards show completed courses with letter grades and a GPA for the current semester as well as cumulative GPA for all completed course work. Additionally, the report card may show a “W” for withdrawal from a course and an “I” for incomplete course work. If a student follows the appropriate LBS procedure for withdrawal, the course will not appear on their transcripts and thus not be factored into their GPA. If a student does not follow the Withdrawal procedures, the course will be assigned a 0.0 GPA score. The grade “I” signifies incomplete but satisfactory work. An “I” may be granted by appeal to the Administration for extenuating circumstances. If incomplete work is not made up within one month following the scheduled date of the final exam, the “I” is changed to the grade the student earned, averaging a zero in the place of the missing work.
If an instructor finds it necessary to change a student’s grade for a legitimate reason, a grade change can be issued. A student has up to three months after a grade has been issued to appeal to the instructor for a grade change.
