The overall course grade will be the weighted average of the component letter grades. A rounding factor equivalent to 0.5 will be used. The overall letter grade will be mapped to UB's letter grade system as follows: A+ -> A; D- -> F; F+ -> F; the remaining grades map onto themselves.
No special arrangements will be made for extra credit or other means of improving grades.
