Grade Point Average – Graduate

The grade point average (GPA) is computed on a four-point basis. The cumulative GPA includes all graduate courses taken at the university except courses for which no grade points are assigned. (See Graduate Grading Scale.)

Graduate students must attain a minimum graduate program-specific GPA of 2.5 or higher to receive a graduate degree or certificate. Graduate students must earn a grade of B (3.0) in all courses in the student's concentration component area and in the identified capstone course for each program. In the MBA program, the required B grade is needed in the capstone course, and all concentration courses, in the instance where the student has elected to complete a concentration. If a concentration is not elected – then a B is only needed in the capstone course. Additionally, graduate students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or higher in all assigned undergraduate prerequisite courses.
