Good Academic Standing

Requirements for good academic standing are different for undergraduate and graduate students.

Undergraduate Students


Undergraduate students who have both a cumulative GPA and UCM GPA of at least a 2.00 are considered to be in good academic standing.  A minimum of a 2.00 is required in both of these GPAs to qualify for graduation.  In addition, undergraduate students must maintain a minimum 2.00 in both major and minor required courses .

Some undergraduate majors, minors, and degree programs may require a GPA greater than 2.00 and/or require a grade of C or higher in specific major/minor courses.  Students should refer to their Central Degree audit and  Undergraduate Catalog for particular major, minor, and degree GPA requirements.  Additional questions can be directed to Department Chairs or Academic Advisors.

Graduate Students


For graduate students, the cumulative and UCM grade point averages will always be the same.

Graduate students who have a cumulative /UCM GPA of at least a 3.00 are considered to be in good academic standing. A minimum of a 3.00 is required to qualify for graduation.

In addition to maintaining a minimum 3.00 GPA, graduate students must receive a grade of C or higher in each course required in their degree or certificate program. No more than six semester hours of credit with a grade of C will be applied toward degree requirements.
