Grade Point Average Requirements:
Applicants who apply for admission to the Graduate College are evaluated on the individual merits of their academic achievements and scholarly potential to complete graduate-level coursework and curriculum requirements. A minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00 based on a 4.00 scale, is required for admission to the Graduate College. Calculation of the GPA is based on the following:·
Students who DO NOT meet the minimum 3.0 GPA requirement with their undergraduate coursework may choose to satisfy their Graduate College minimum GPA requirement while in graduate Non-Degree Status. Students who complete 12 semester units of non-degree graded (A,B,C) 500 level or higher coursework with a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 are eligible to apply to a degree program. Once students have received 12 or more graduate units, the graduate GPA will be the only GPA the Graduate College will use to finalize admission. Individual programs may still consider all coursework when making recommendation decisions for a particular degree program. Students may transfer up to twelve Non-Degree status units into their desired degree program with the approval of their program and the Graduate College Degree Certification office.
