Undergraduate Regulations

Undergraduate Grading Standard


In considering student performance, and in determining suitability for continued study or degree award, the Graduate College is attentive to the cumulative grade point average and the patterns of grades that yield the average. The Graduate College requires a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 for program continuation in good standing and for degree award. Additionally, the Graduate College requires a pattern of grades which documents consistent performance in courses at or above the 2.00 level. Accordingly:

A grade of an F in any course subjects the studentís continuance in the program to immediate review regardless of the Graduate College grade point average. The receipt of a grade of F may result in a suspension from the Graduate College for a period of one calendar year after which an application for re-admission may be submitted.

A grade of F in any course issued as a consequence of student failure to remove an Incomplete subjects the studentís continuance to immediate review and may result in immediate Academic Dismissal.

A grade of D in any course may subject the studentís continuance in the program to review and may result in academic probation.

Only credits received for coursework in which performance was assessed at D or higher counts toward or are applicable to degree credit hour requirements.
