Grading System

Grades are reported for each course at the end of the term. Students must obtain a grade of D or better to receive credit in any course. Students can check posted grades at any time by accessing Path@Penn.

All Wharton courses are graded on a plus/minus system, from A+ or A to F. Wharton students who take courses in any other school of the University are subject to that school’s grading system for those courses.

The grade point average (GPA) is tabulated at the end of every semester based on the following: A+/A (4.0), A- (3.7), B+ (3.3), B (3.0), B- (2.7), C+ (2.3), C (2.0), C- (1.7), D+ (1.3), D (1.0), and F (0.0). There is no grade of D-.
