These students wasted their money. I hope that you work hard and do not waste your money. - Your final grade will be based on your total points in the course from the following components: First exam (Overview & Concepts) 75 Second exam (Property transactions) 185 Third exam (Businesses) 200 Fourth exam (Individuals) 260 Homework Problems 140 Individual Income Tax Returns with software 70 70 Total 1000 - NO extra credit work will be given to any student for any reason. 850 points will be the lowest A −. In other words, 849 points is a grade of B +. 750 points will be the lowest B −. In other words, 749 points is a grade of C + . 650 points will be the lowest C −. In other words, 649 points is a grade of D 600 points is the lowest D. In other words, 599 points is a grade of F . - PASSING is a grade of “C−” or better. (“D” is not a passing grade.) - Your final grade will be one of the following: A, A−, B+, B, B−, C+, C, C−, D, or F. At any point in the semester, to translate the number of points you have earned on graded work into the grade range you are in, go to the column titled “Grade to Date. It will provide a percentage which equals point you have earned divided by all of the (items above that) points for graded work completed by the instructor. This percentage can be compared to the following: 85.0% is the bottom of the A− range; 75.0% is the bottom of the B− range; 65.0% is the bottom of the C− range; from 60.0% up to below 65.0% is a D grade. Below 60.0% is an F grade. Course Withdrawal Policy : (Note: Withdrawal forms are available in SSB #487). • By Friday March 4 (which is after the 2nd exam is returned) you may obtain an EXCUSED withdrawal from the course regardless of the grade that you have earned.
