Is a C in grad school really considered failure?
Someone said that a C in grad school is considered failure. I m not from the US, so I don t know about the grading there. But at my school it s almost impossible to get a better grade than a C. With a GPA of 2.5 you are actually entitled to receive scholarships and all other sorts of things. Is the. show more Someone said that a C in grad school is considered failure.

In my country you got to work like crazy just to pass the course. Forget about getting good grades.
US Grading System; most states are on 10 point and very few are on the 7 point, at least one.
10 Point Scale:——–7 Point Scale:
F is failure, Do Not Pass Go
At most universities/colleges you are required to have a 3.0 GPA to get a scholarship on the 10 point scale. However, a C is required in a course to go onto the next class. D will pass but still will need a C to go further, and F is outright failure. Some higher level or science courses in particular require a B to go onto the next class. Thus, you need to keep a B average and above for Grad school.
This is a Grad School Grading System:
A Superior 4.0
A- Above Average 3.7
B+ Above Average 3.3
B Average 3.0
B- Below Average 2.7
C+ Below Average 2.3
C Below Average 2.0
F Failure 0.0
I Incomplete 0.0
NR Not Reported by professor 0.0
S Satisfactory 0.0
T Transfer grade 0.0
U Unsatisfactory 0.0
W Withdrawal without academic penalty 0.0
WF Withdrawal with academic penalty 0.0
X Audit (no academic credit) 0.0
Yes, graduate students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) throughout the program, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for graduation. C IS COUNTED AS A FAILING GRADE IN GRAD SCHOOL. Failure to maintain the 3.0 GPA places the student on academic probation. The student has one semester to bring the average back up to a 3.0. Failure to do so may result in academic suspension from the program.
Graduate students who receive three grades of C or lower are automatically suspended from the program.
