Grades and GPA

The grades given at Bloomsburg University with their commensurate quality points are defined as follows:

A = 4.00 Superior Attainment

A- = 3.67

B+ = 3.33

B = 3.00 Above Average Attainment

B- = 2.67

C+ = 2.33

C = 2.00 Average Attainment

C- = 1.67

D+=1.33

D = 1.00 Minimum Attainment

F = 0.00 Failure

    Grade Change

    If a student thinks he/she received an inaccurate grade, it is necessary to discuss this with the professor. If the professor agrees that a mistake has been made, the instructor files a grade change form, which requires the approval of the chairperson and dean. The academic record is updated after the grade change has been processed.

    If the student is not satisfied through this route, he/she should see the department chair. If nothing is accomplished there, the Dean of the College is the next person to contact concerning a legitimate grade change complaint.

    In any event, written recommendation for the grade change must be obtain from the instructor, department chairperson, and Dean of the College. If these procedures fail to produce a resolution, a grievance can be filed through the Academic Grievance Procedure (see PRP 3592 - Academic Grievance Procedure).

    Semester Quality Point Average

    To compute semester quality point average, multiply the quality point value of the grade received in a course by the number of credits the course is worth. This gives the number of quality points per course. Total the quality points and divide into the total number of credits (Grades of I,R,W,P,F,V, or X are not included).

    How to determine your GPA

    Intro to Literature, 3 credits, A (4.0)

      4 x 3 = 12

    Aquatics, 1 credit, B (3.0)

      3 x 1 = 3

    Composition II, 3 credits, B- (2.67)

      2.67 x 3 = 8.01

    Intro to Philosophy, 3 credits, C (2.00)

      3 x 2 = 6

    Total for 10 credits

      29.01

    Divide 29.01 by 10 to arrive at a 2.9 semester quality point average

    At the conclusion of the drop/add period, students will withdraw from a course through MyHusky. The withdrawal period for every term begins at the conclusion of drop/add and ends the last day of classes. Please refer to Enrollment Dates to identify that time period for each term/session. You will sign into your MyHusky account, go to Enrollment Drop, select the course you want to withdraw from and then follow the instructions on the screens. Once the process is complete, you will see a “W” grade next to the course in MyHusky. You will be able to withdraw from one or all of your courses through MyHusky. If you have a hold that will prevent you from dropping (withdrawing from a course), you will need to contact the Office of the Registrar for further assistance.

    If you are in need of an Enrollment Verification for purposes such as; car insurance, health insurance, loans, etc. please follow the linked instructions.

    Adding courses to your shopping cart does not mean you are scheduled for those courses. You MUST move the courses from your shopping cart to your schedule in order to be enrolled in the course(s).

    For quick and easy instructions on how to move courses from your shopping cart to your schedule in MyHusky, visit our shopping cart tutorial.

    Bloomsburg University will be utilizing electronic wait listing (for closed courses) during the scheduling period.

    This electronic method of attempting to get into closed classes will replace paper waitlists that departments used in the past.

    • However, not all departments or all courses at Bloomsburg University will utilize the waitlisting option. 
    • When scheduling a class if wait listing is being used you will see a yellow triangle next to the class.

    wait listing

    • If a seat opens up, students on the waitlist are automatically enrolled if they meet the prerequisites and if they do not have another class scheduled at the same time of day and week.
    • Students are enrolled in open seats based on their position number on the waitlist.
    • Waitlisting is a process within the Students Service Center Enrollment function of MyHusky. 
    • If a section of a course allows for waitlisting, the student must opt into being added to the waitlist during the enrollment process. It is not automatic. 
    • During the Spring and Fall semester scheduling process, wait listing will not commence until the Seniors begin scheduling.
    • It will not be in effect for the freshmen scheduling or the Priority scheduling timetable. This will ensure that if a waitlist exists for a course hopefully seniors and juniors will populate that list prior to sophomore and Freshmen. 

    Wait Listing FAQs

    Using Swap when adding a Wait Listing Course

    Adding a Wait Listing Course

    Students who want to change or add majors and minors must do so using the electronic forms option located on their MyHusky Student Center. Then choose the Add/Change a Major or Minor form.

    Information and instructions on the specifics of the Major/Minor change eForm and how to properly submit it can be found on the Myhusky page, under E-Form Tutorials.

    Some majors require departmental approval for entry into the major. Once you submit the eform, the appropriate department will receive an electronic notification to review your request. It may be best to meet with the department prior to submitting your request to avoid any delay in the approval process. A list is provided of the majors that need permission and those that do not.

    All minors require permission. Once submitted the appropriate department will receive an electronic notification to review your request. Please be aware that the approval process for majors and minors may take a few days to process. You will be notified via email once your request has been processed.

    Transferring Credits to BU

    Are you a current BU student planning to take courses at another College or University?

    • Students should complete the Prior Approval form through their MyHusky account. Please see the E-form tutorial on that page for assistance.
    • Students can use our BU course equivalencies tool to look for course equivalents in a PA college or university.
    • If you wish to transfer the grade from a PASSHE school ONLY, you may fill out a Undergraduate Visiting Student form. Filling out this form ensures that the credit and grade will transfer back to BU, not just the credit. This also ensures the student that a transcript will be sent from the visiting college to BU.

    Visiting Student Application

    Once your course is finished, have an unopened, official transcript sent to Bloomsburg University, Enrollment Services Office of the Registrar.

    Please refer to BU Policy 3343 and PASSHE Policy 2016-24 when transferring credit.

    Enables undergraduates to enroll at other PASSHE schools to take advantage of other available courses without loss of institutional residency, eligibility for honors or athletics, or credits toward graduation at the home institution. Students must visit Enrollment Services-Office of the Registrar in person in order to obtain a Visiting Student Form to participate in this program.

    Visiting Student Application

    • Please discuss all course transfers with your program coordinator.
    • Students should complete the Prior Approval form through their MyHusky account. Please see the E-form tutorial on that page for assistance.
    • Students can use our BU course equivalencies tool to look for course equivalents.
    • If you wish to transfer the grade from a PASSHE School ONLY, you may fill out a Graduate Visiting Student form. Filling out this form ensures that the credit and grade will transfer back to BU, not just the credit. This also ensures the student that a transcript will be sent from the visiting college to BU.
    • Please refer to the PRP 3463 when transferring Graduate credits.

    Once the course is finished, have an unopened, official transcript sent to:

    Bloomsburg University
    Office of the Registrar-125 Arts & Admin Building
    400 East 2nd Street
    Bloomsburg, PA 17815

    Credits from accredited institutions may transfer into Bloomsburg University. Grades, quality points, and grade point averages do not transfer. Please see PRP 3343 for more information.

    Refer to the Course Equivalency Search to see how the courses from your previous institutions may transfer into Bloomsburg University.

    More information about transferring to Bloomsburg University

    The course equivalency tool is designed to allow students and advisors to look up a course at another institution and immediately see the Bloomsburg Equivalency.

    Prior to completing a Prior Approval form through your MyHusky, use this tool to determine what the Bloomsburg Equivalency will be.

    Always meet with your academic advisor for specific information concerning transfer courses and their application to your degree requirements.
