Grading Policy



The purpose of the Policy on Grading is to ensure standards of grading at Hudson County Community College (“College”) relating to grade points per credit hour are clearly communicated and consistently applied. Consistent application of grade points per credit hour has important implications for the award of academic recognition, including scholarships, the function of transfer, the disbursement of financial aid, students’ academic progress, and students’ academic standing.


The College and its Board of Trustees (“Board”) are committed to the evaluation of students’ academic performance in credit-bearing courses and programs in compliance with clearly established standards that are applied in a consistent manner. They charge the Office of Academic Affairs to promote standards for the application of grade points per credit hour. 
The Board delegates to the President the responsibility to develop procedures and guidelines for the implementation of this policy. The Office of Academic Affairs shall be responsible for implementing the procedures and guidelines developed for this policy.
