Grading System:  Letters


Passing Grade:  NLC's standard University Arts and Sciences minimum passing grade of D (50%) is applicable. See below for grade requirements related to transfer credit.


Other Pertinent Information Relevant to Transfer: NLC's BIOL 112 (4) transfers to UNBC as HHSC 112: Anatomy and Physiology II (4). UNBC requires a minimum final course grade of "B-" (2.67 GPA) in BIOL 112 for admission into the Northern Baccalaureate Nursing Program. UNBC also requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 on all 60 credits transferred into the Northern Baccalaureate Nursing program. Students are encouraged to check minimum final grade requirements for transfer credit into other nursing or health programs. A minimum final course grade of "C" (2.00 GPA) or higher may be required.
