Grade Point Average—Graduate

The grade point average is computed on a four-point basis. The cumulative grade point average includes all graduate courses taken at the University except courses for which no grade points are assigned. (See “Grading System.”)

Graduate students must attain a minimum graduate program-specific grade point average of 2.5 or higher to receive a graduate degree or certificate.  Graduate students must earn a grade of "B" (3.0) or higher in all courses in the student's concentration component area, and in the identified capstone course for each program.  Additionally, graduate students must earn a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher in all assigned undergraduate prerequisite courses.

A graduate student who wishes to carry more than 13.5 credit hours in one quarter must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative grade point average. He/she may not carry more than 18 credit hours in one quarter, unless permitted by the Campus Dean or Associate Campus Dean, Academic Advisor, or Dean of the Program.
