Grading

Only letter grades are included in the grade-point average (GPA) of the program. Grades listed as S/U, I, and IP are not included in the GPA.

A course retaken due to failure is included in the GPA if it is passable. The failure grade remains on the Northeastern University transcript but is excluded from the GPA.

Although credit can be transferred, grades transferred from another institution are not calculated in the GPA on the Northeastern University transcript. Therefore, courses repeated due to failure must be completed at Northeastern.
