A tweet from the president:

And the letter grade equivalents for students at Baruch College, one of 24 excellent public colleges and schools that comprise the City University of New York (emphasis mine):

A = 4.0 = 93.0-100.0 percent

A- = 3.7 = 90.0-92.9 percent

B+ = 3.3 = 87.1-89.9 percent

B = 3.0 = 83.0-87.0 percent

B- = 2.7 = 80.0-82.9 percent

C+ = 2.3 = 77.1-79.9 percent

C = 2.0 = 73.0-77.0 percent

C- = 1.7 = 70.0-72.9 percent

D+ = 1.3 = 67.1-69.9 percent

D = 1.0 = 60.0-67.0 percent

F = 0.0 = below 60.0 percent

And a further clarification from Baruch as to their meaning:

Excellent (A, A-).

Very good (B+, B, B-).

Average (C+, C).

Poor (C-, D+, D).

Failure (F).

Failure (F).
