The minimum passing grade required for a Medical Assistant (MED) course is a C (70 percent). Any grade below a C (70 percent) is a failing grade. Therefore, only a MED course in which students receive at least a C (70 percent) will satisfy the course requirements for the Medical Assistant program. A failure in the lecture, laboratory, or practicum portion of a MED course will result in a failing grade for the entire course.
Repeating a Medical Course
Students enrolled in the Medical Assistant program who receive a grade of D or below in any medical assistant (MED) course must repeat that course in order to progress in the program. The minimum passing grade required for a repeated course is a C.
Note that failed courses may lead to repeat charges and may also delay graduation.
Medical Assistant Competencies
Students enrolled in the Medical Assistant program must pass 100 percent of all program competencies in order to graduate. The minimum passing score for each competency is 85 percent.
