Graded Work Accepted for the Degree
In no case may more than one-fourth of the hours accepted toward the degree be grades of “C." A grade lower than “C-” renders the credit unacceptable for meeting University degree requirements. Grades of “C-” or better qualify for graduate credit but may not count towards the degree. Students should consult with their program to understand unit-specific minimum grade requirements.
Students cannot take more than eight-quarter hours beyond the degree requirements in order to make up grade deficiencies. These additional credit hours should be relevant for the degree and approved by the student’s advisor. Students whose grades are still deficient after taking the additional eight hours are terminated from the degree program.
Note: Satisfactory grades for the Sturm College of Law may be different. Consult the unit for details.
