Grade-Point Average (GPA)

The following grades are used: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D- and F. Some individual courses may not be graded on the plus/minus grading scale.

The scale of grade-points is listed below. The symbols Q and X yield zero points. CR counts as hours taken, but no grade points are earned toward your grade-point average (GPA). Grade-point averages are computed on the basis of grades and number of semester credit hour units.

In order to be eligible to continue taking extension courses, you must maintain a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 (C) on all coursework taken in which a letter grade is received.

If, after taking three courses with University Extension, you have not maintained a C average (2.0) for all extension courses taken, you will be barred from registering for more University Extension courses for one long session and any intervening summer session. A second dismissal will be for three calendar years, and in order to register for any courses after that time you must receive approval from the Director of University Extension. A student dismissed for the third time will not be allowed to register for further courses with University Extension.
