Letter Grades are used to show the academic standing of a student. The following are the grades, meanings of the grades and the values of the grades issued by this University:

The student’s grades are computed at the end of each semester. The student is graded for his/her work during the semester. This includes quizzes, term papers, book reports, assignments, recitation, class participation, attendance, midterm examinations, and final examinations.

Grades are accessible online with the use of the student’s ID (www.siam.edu).

Withdrawal (W) grade: assigned by the instructor upon official withdrawal from class (see Course Add/Withdrawal). Non-failure.

Incomplete (I) grade: indicates that the semester’s work is incomplete. “I” grades are granted at the instructor’s discretion. “I” grades revert to “F” if change is not made within the following term.

Two or more tests, including mid-term and final examinations, are given each semester. Students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of not less than 2.00 for a bachelor’s degree completion and 3.00 for a master’s and doctoral degree.

Students can check their grades online by logging on the Registrar Department web site: http://home.sis.siam.edu/registrar/home.asp?lang=2.
