Grade Point Average (GPA)

A student's cumulative grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of quality hours into the total number of quality points earned including F grades for all repeated courses that have not been approved for deletion on the basis of petition by the student. To obtain a degree or certificate in an undergraduate program, the student must have the proper number of credit hours in the courses required for the degree and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Grade point average requirements may be higher in certain colleges and in certain majors; this information is available in the individual college listings.
