Unlike most high schools, grades are not mailed to students' home addresses or given out in class. To get final course grades, students log into CabriniOne at one.cabrini.edu, click the "Students" tab on the top menu bar, "Student Records," and then "Final Grades." Grades are generally available approximately 2-3 days after completion of the semester.
Transcripts To get their unofficial transcripts, students log into CabriniOne at one.cabrini.edu, click the "Students" tab on the top menu bar, "Student Records," and then "Academic Transcript."
To get an official transcript, students must complete a transcript request form at the Registrar's Office. There is a small fee for each transcript.
GPA Cabrini College uses the 4.0 grading system to evaluate students' achievements in a course. Each letter grade is assigned a numerical value called quality points.
Quality Point Average (QPA) Students' quality point average (QPA) is the same as a GPA. The QPA is calculated by dividing the total number of credit hours attempted in classes with A-F letter grades into the total number of quality points earned.
To calculate the number of quality points earned for each course, multiply the quality point value for the letter grade earned and multiply it by the number of course credits for that class.
For example, a B in a 4-credit class earns 3.00 (quality points for a B) x 4 (credits for the class) = 12.00 total quality points.
The following letter grades may be present on transcripts, but are not used in calculating the QPA:
Also, if a class is repeated to earn a better grade, students only earn credit for taking the course once. The quality points used to calculate QPA will be based on the last grade received in the course, even if it is a lower grade. Note that transcripts will show all attempts at taking the class. Here's an example of calculating overall QPA:
14 credits, 34.00 quality points QPA = 34 / 14 = 2.42, which is a C+/B- average.
Warning notices During the first year, students may receive two types of progress notices.
After the first month of classes, students get an email progress report from each professor indicating strengths, weaknesses, and hints for improvement.
At mid-term, if a student's grade in a particular class is a D or F, they may receive a "Warning Notice."
Both documents also go to academic advisors and should be a point of discussion at an advising meeting. If students do receive a warning notice, they should take the initiative to meet with the professor to determine how best to improve.
