Grading Scale

Begining with the Summer 2014 term, Baylor University adpoted a new grading scale that includes minus grade options for undergraduate courses. Since the late 1970s, Baylor's undergraduate grading scale has included grades of B+ and C+, but no corresponding minus grades. In addition, the changes in the grading scale will lead to consistent grades and grade point values between undergraduate, graduate, and seminary courses. The reasons behind the change are to bring Baylor in line with the grading scales of other universities, to provide faculty with additional flexibility in the grades they record for students, and to provide greater consistency across the University.
