Minimum GPA Requirements in Major/Minor/Licensure

 

1.   All majors or areas of concentration/minors or areas of emphasis/licensure should

      include the following:

 

“A minimum GPA of 2.0 (or higher if indicated by the discipline)is required in the major or area of concentration and in the minor or area of emphasis in order to graduate.  Grades of “F” are included in GPA calculation until they are replaced.

 

(Note: this excludes transfer courses from other institutions and includes “transfer” courses from other campuses of the University.)

 

2.   Any specific limitation that refers to the D grade should be amended to say:

      “D or D+.”

 

 

3.   Where D grades are not allowed, catalog text should read:

 

“No grades below C- are allowed.”

 

 

Rationale:   Degree-related requirements need to be explicit in the Catalog. Our current Catalog is not clear on GPA requirements in the minor.  Our current Catalog mentions only D grades and assumes disciplines that allow D grades also allow D+ grades.
