Grading Policies at Adelphi University

Learn about our grading system and how your GPA is computed.

In light of the extremely unusual circumstances surrounding this semester due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, and the stress and anxiety this has caused for many of you, we have conducted extensive research into enhanced Pass/Fail options that can reduce the potential impact of the situation on your grades and GPAs.

Grades represent the instructor’s evaluation of student competencies and course performance. Grades assigned by Adelphi instructors conform to University standards, policies, and procedures. Each instructor will inform students of applicable grading standards for a course. Students may review the material submitted to the instructor for evaluation, such as that student’s papers and examinations. At the end of each semester, grades are given in semester courses. Instructors submit grades to the Office of the University Registrar within 48 hours of the scheduled final exam.
