Blackboard: Access to online courses are available through Blackboard. To access Blackboard, click on the ‘Student Login’ link, located in the upper right corner of our website. Click on the Blackboard Login link and enter your username and password. Students will receive a username and password by email once they enroll into an online class. Changing the password is not recommended as staff from Wentworth cannot retrieve or reset the password if it is lost or forgotten. This can limit your ability to finish the class because it takes time to create a new student profile.
For questions about assignments or how to navigate the course website, contact the course instructor using the communication link in Blackboard. For questions about your username or password, contact CPT Brent Zweifel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NetClassroom: Class schedules, grades, and unofficial transcripts are available through NetClassroom . To access NetClassroom, click on the ‘Student Login’ link, located in the upper right corner of our website. Click on the appropriate NetClassroom Login link and enter your username and password. Once accepted to Wentworth College, students are issued a username and password. The username and password for NetClassroom are different than that used for Blackboard. Students may change their password. If the username or password is lost or forgotten, contact the Registrar.
Degree Programs: Wentworth College offers the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science – Business Management, Associate of Science – Paralegal Studies, Associate of Science, and Homeland Security degrees.

The application deadline for December graduation is October 1st; the deadline for May graduation is March 1st.

Honors and Grade Point System: A college student must carry a full academic load for the semester and for the 16-week terms ending in December, May or August to be eligible for any of the academic honor lists. The student must earn a GPA of 3.0 or higher and have no grade lower than a C to be eligible for the Dean’s List. For the President’s List, the student must earn a minimum GPA of 3.50 or higher and have no grade below a B.
The grading system of Wentworth College is on a 4.0 scale as follows:
A = 90 – 100 (4.00 quality points)
B = 80 – 89 (3.00 quality points)
C = 70 – 79 (2.00 quality points)
D = 60 – 69 (1.00 quality points)
F = 0 – 59 (0.00 quality points)
W = Withdrew (not counted in calculating GPA)
The GPA is calculated as follows: Multiply the number of semester hours earned in a specific course by the quality point for the grade in the course. Complete the same procedure of each course and add all the quality points together. Divide the sum by the sum of all semester hours earned. The result is the student’s GPA.
