Frontier had two passing requirements. Needed an 80% to pass the class and also had an exam average of 80%. So if your exam average was 79.9%, you fail even if you write an awesome paper or had an ancillary assignment to tip the scales.

I'm at Georgia State University in the FNP program. The majority of my classes require an 80% on tests and an 80% overall, but you must have an 80% on your tests before anything else is considered.

In graduate schools in general, B (or B- if they use the plus/minus) is usually the minimum passing grade. Also, you are generally required to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA and if your semester GPA falls below that, you might find yourself on academic probation. This could mean if you get all Bs and one B- in a semester, you could be on probation even though they are all passing grades.

At my FNP program, you needed an 84% to make a B.

At my current school, 80% is a B.
