NCAA Grading Scale

Parents should not supply a GPA without its being required as the percentage forces admissions officers to truly evaluate the level of course load and the school's academic profile. If a GPA is mandated by a university or college, SCA has approved use of the NCAA grading scale which is as follows:





F=below 60

*Percentages for dual-credit/honors courses are weighted.

*Students are not ranked.
