Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

It is the policy of California Miramar University to afford qualified students with disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, an equal opportunity to participate in, and thus benefit from, all programs, services, and activities of the University. This includes, but is not limited to, providing appropriate academic adjustments and auxiliary aids for persons with disabilities as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA); and applicable federal and state nondiscrimination laws.

CMU does not discriminate on the basis of disability and provides qualified students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in the University’s programs through appropriate academic adjustments and the provision of auxiliary aids. The University accepts requests for accommodations from students with various disabilities including learning or intellectual disabilities. The University seeks to enhance a students’ chance of success within the classroom by offering accommodations, including, not limited to, extended time on exams; extended time on assignments; use of a calculator; provision to take tests in separate location and the permission to use a tape recorder in class. A disabled student is not required to disclose his/her disability to the University unless the student wishes the University to provide a reasonable accommodation. Please contact our Registrar for further information.

Accommodations can only be ensured by the first day of classes if requested at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the start of the quarter. However, the University will put interim accommodations in place to the extent possible for requests received less than thirty (30) calendar days in advance.


Grades and evaluations are based on the demonstrated performance and level of academic knowledge gained during a course. CMU Faculty are required to provide constructive feedback and grade all session assignments for each course and enter the grades into the Learning Management System in a timely manner. Timely means within five days (non-weekends) of the receipt of the lessons from the student. The grading will consist of letter grades of A through F with grade points as indicated below. Additional elements of essays, problems, projects and case studies will receive letter grades from the faculty based on the grading rubric established by the University.

The grading scale is as follows:

A 95-100 points C 74-76.9 points
A- 90-94.9 points C- 70-73.9 points
B+ 87-89.9 points D+ 67-69.9 points
B 84-86.9 points D 64-66.9 points
B- 80-83.9 points D- 60-63.9 points
C+ 77-79.9 points F Below 59.9 points


Grade Point Average

A student’s grade point average (GPA) is obtained by dividing the total number of points earned by the total credit hours attempted. Grades and symbols used to record academic progress are listed in the grading system table below. GPA is based on a maximum of 4.0.  Grade points are assigned to all grades as follows:

In 2006, President Bush signed Public Law 108-447 designating September 17th as Constitution Day.
