* Learning goals mentioned above refer to those described in the syllabus for the relevant subject.

* "Ineligible for grading" will be indicated on a grade report when grading is impossible due to poor attendance (failure to attend at least two-thirds of the classes), unsubmitted papers, or failure to take exams.

* Besides grades in the above table, a grade of T (abbreviation of Transfer) will be indicated as a passing grade when a subject taken at another institution abroad or in Japan which is accepted at Toyo University. 

To earn credits for a registered subject, you must attend at least two-thirds of all classes and pass the prescribed examinations (including assignments and in-class exams).


10-2. Grade Announcement

Grades will be posted on ToyoNet-G each semester. The date of the grade announcement will be announced via the digital signage.

If you believe that there is an error in the grade that you have been issued, you can apply for a grade appeal to your instructor via E-mail. Please access to the syllabus to confirm the E-mail address of the instructor (Syllabi are available on ToyoNet-G).

* Please note that the aim of grade appeal is not to ask the instructor to reconsider the grade or to disclose further information. If you fail to provide adequate grounds or if your application is not in line with the aim of the grade appeal, your application will be rejected. Be sure to confirm the grading criteria of the university and the “Grading Method and Criteria” section in the syllabus for the relevant subject before submitting an application.

* Please note that when you are going to apply for the grade appeal for Sports and Health Science subjects, LEAP subjects and University-wide Comprehensive Lectures, the grade appeal must be done via ToyoNet-G.

The grade report of students will be sent to their guarantor (excluding international students).


10-3. GPA System

The GPA (Grade Point Average) is widely used by universities in Japan and abroad as an indicator to measure a student’s academic performance. When a student completes a subject, the student is assigned a letter grade. Each letter grade awarded has an associated numeric grade point value ranging from 0.0 to 4.3. The GPA is the average of grade points per credit for all subjects taken.

【GPA calculation formula】

* The GPA calculation considers only registered subjects that are counted towards graduation requirements.
Qualification subjects and free elective subjects are not included in the GPA calculation.

* The grades included in the GPA calculation are S, A, B, C, D, E, and *(asterisk); a“ T” grade is excluded from the GPA calculation.

* If a student repeats a failed subject and receives a passing grade, the new grade will be used in the GPA.

* The GPA is rounded to the second decimal place. (The third decimal place is rounded off.)
