Grading Scale

Baton Rouge General's School of Radiologic Technology reserves the right to recommend for progression and promotion only those students who, in the faculty’s judgment, meet the school’s requirements for academic achievement, health, attitude, and aptitude for radiologic technology.

Letter Grade Numerical Grade* Quality Points*
A - Excellent 93-100 4.0
B - Good 87-92 3.0
C - Satisfactory 80-86 2.0
D - Unsatisfactory 73-79 1..0
F - Fail 72.99 and below 0.0

W - Withdrawal: The student withdrew from the course prior to published date to drop with a “W”.

WF - Withdrawal Failing: The student withdrew from the course after the published date to withdraw and had a course average less than 80% or was in clinical jeopardy.

WP - Withdrawal Passing: The student withdrew from the course after the published date to withdraw and had a course average greater than 80% and was not in clinical jeopardy.

*Minimum passing grade in Radiography 80 is the lowest passing grade. The minimum grade of 80 must be earned to successfully complete academic course requirements.

All courses are reported as whole numbers by grading software or gradebooks for passing or GPA calculations. All students must score a “C” or better in all professional program courses and a minimum 2.50 Cumulative GPA for progression from semester to semester and to graduate from the program.


The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) requires documentation of successful completion of an Associate Degree, in addition to documentation of successful completion of the radiologic technologist program in order to be eligible for National ARRT Registry/certification testing.

Baton Rouge General School of Radiologic Technology and Northwestern State University have an articulation agreement in place to aid students in completing this requirement. For more information, contact Dr. Laura Aaron at Northwestern State University at (318) 677-3072 or at and the Baton Rouge General School of Radiologic Technology Program Director at (225) 387-7157.
