Academic Grading Scale

The School of Nursing and Health Studies uses the grading scale below for the School's coursework, including nursing (BNURS), Health Studies (BHS) and Health Electives (BHLTH). The University of Washington establishes correspondence  between the 4.0 scale and letter grades for Graduate and Undergraduate coursework.  

Rounding Scores Up or Down

Rounding raw scores up or down, is at the discretion of each faculty member. Questions about grading policies should be directed to the faculty member.

For questions regarding specific course grading, review the course syllabus and communicate directly with the faculty member of the course.
