Grade Point Average
Grade point average (qualitative standard)
Students must meet a qualitative standard of academic progress measured through an overall grade point average which includes all grades on a student’s transcript.
Undergraduate students must maintain at least a 1.7 cumulative grade point average for the first 29 credit hours attempted and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all credit hours attempted over 29. Grades of “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “F”, “RA”, “RB”, “RC”, “RD”, and “RF” will count in the GPA standard for measurement of SAP.
For graduate students, a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on all attempted hours is required. Grades of “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, and “F” will count in the GPA standard for measurement of SAP.
Repeat courses, remedial (zero level) courses and courses that a student obtains forgiveness for are counted in the cumulative GPA standard for measuring satisfactory academic progress; therefore, your cumulative GPA may not be the same as your retention GPA.
Students denied federal aid due to a low GPA may submit a Financial Assistance Appeal Form with the required documentation explaining the reasons for not meeting the minimum GPA requirement.
