Frequently Asked Questions: Course or Assignment Grades

Grades Earned

Your faculty instructor provides feedback for the grades you earn on individual assignments. Walden encourages students to read the feedback very carefully, applying any recommendations for strengthening a thesis, applying APA formatting, etc., to future assignments. The final grade for your course will be calculated based on the grades you earned throughout the term in accordance to the grading information outlined in your syllabus.

Please contact your faculty for any questions you may have about the grade you earned on an assignment or for a course.
