Grades

Offices and departments on campus use a standard set of grades (A through F) and grading symbols to mark a student’s progress at the university. To receive credit for a course, an undergraduate must earn a grade of at least D-. To include a course in the Program of Work for a graduate degree, a graduate student must earn a grade of at least C.

Complete information about grades and symbols that may be used in place of grades can be found in the General Information Catalog.

To receive credit for a course, an undergraduate must earn a grade of at least D-. Academic departments may require a higher grade for the course to be counted toward the student’s degree.

To include a course in the Program of Work for a graduate degree, a graduate student must earn a grade of at least C. More information about the Program of Work is given in the graduate catalog.

One of the following symbols may be assigned instead of a grade. Courses in which these symbols are recorded are not included in the grade point average.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Student GPAs appear on official transcripts and grade reports. A transcript shows both undergraduate and graduate GPAs.

No official GPA is calculated by the registrar for students enrolled in the School of Law.

GPA Calculator

The cumulative GPA for an undergraduate includes all work undertaken at the university for which a letter grade is recorded. The cumulative GPA for a graduate student includes all graduate courses taken in residence, certain upper-division undergraduate courses taken in residence and all graduate extension courses taken while enrolled in the Graduate School for which a letter grade has been recorded.

See the General Information Catalog for details about course numbering, credit value and rank.

Grade Reports

Grade reports are available to all students, except students in the School of Law and Dell Medical School, at the end of each semester and summer session.

If you believe there is an error in the report of a grade, contact your course instructor, who will submit a grade change request if appropriate. If the grade change is approved, the Office of the Registrar will correct the record and notify you of the new grade and your new GPA.

University Honors

Undergraduates with a full course load and excellent grades can earn a place on the university’s honors list and will be notified via their grade report. See the General Information Catalog to learn more about university honors.

Probation and Dismissal

A student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA to remain academically eligible to register for the next semester or summer session. The GPA required of undergraduates varies according to the amount of college-level credit they have earned. Students should direct questions about scholastic status to their deans’ offices.

Complete rules about undergraduate probation and dismissal are given in the General Information Catalog. See the Graduate Catalog for rules about graduate warning and dismissal.
