Please note that the grades of D+, D, and D pertain only to undergraduate coursework offered in the Division of Public Safety Leadership. The grade of A+ is not assigned at any level.

All students must possess acceptable written command of the English language; instructors will consider writing quality when assigning grades, and make referrals for those needing improvement in writing skills.
