Academic Standards

Grade Point Average Standard
A college-level cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C) is required to graduate with a degree, diploma, certificate or completion of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum.

Grade Point Average Computation
For each grade students earn in a course, they will be assigned honor points.

GradeHonor Points
FN = Failure for Non Attendance0
FW = Failure due to Unofficial Withdraw0
P = Pass0
AU = Audit0
W = Withdraw0

The student’s GPA is obtained from these honor points by calculating the total number of points (honor points per credit times the credits for each course) and dividing that total by the total course credits. An example follows:
