    Pretty much the same as college. Grading scale depends on the professor.

    Evidently SCO is changing clinic grades from actual grades to pass/fail.

    In Suny, it's letter grading system w/o the +/-. For example, 89=B, 90=A, 100=A.

    Most of SCCO's classes are ABCDF grading without the +/-. All the others including clinic grades is pass/fail.

    Most of WesternU's classes are on the letter grading system without +/- as well. Interprofessional education (IPE) small group classes and patient care is pass/fail.

    P.C.O.: Letter grades (no plus/minus) for most courses; pass/fail, for a small minority (e.g., labs.).
