Grading & Testing

Essay assignments and theses are evaluated on an A, B, C basis. Objective type tests are evaluated on the basis of a percentage of correct answers. On official transcripts, EIN translates all achievements into the A, B, C system, according to the following schedule. EIN does not use the grade point system; however, grade point equivalents are also given below for purposes of comparison.

A grade of B+ or above is required for successful completion of all core nutrition EIN subjects. Students who do not achieve successful completion grades in a given subject may, at EIN’s discretion, be allowed to repeat that subject, after having received constructive suggestions from a faculty advisor.

First Class Honors will be awarded to students with an overall average of 90% or greater.

Note: To qualify for designation with the CANNP or IONC, students must obtain a grade of at least “B+” in all core nutrition subjects in the Practitioner Program and in the mid-term and final exams. For information on the CANNP or IONC see Official Recognition under the About Us section.
