*With an overall average grade of at least 5.0
 

*There is no grade of D in Vietnam. However, a grade of 4, which is normally a failing grade, may be accepted as a “condoned pass” (U.S. grade of D) provided the overall grade average for the year is 5.0/10, or higher. This is at the discretion of the institution’s administrators, and, at the post-secondary level, students may be required to re-take, in a future term, the course for which they received a “condoned pass.”
