Montclair Grading Standards

Montclair State University’s Grading Standards are defined by the Provost’s Office/Academic Affairs

This grade breakdown follows a familiar method for translating final letter grades to a 4.0 scale.

Instructors are at liberty to determine how letter grades correspond to percentages or points, or to develop other logical and understandable systems.  Represented below is the Canvas default grading scheme, which is likely the most common scheme used at Montclair.
