I. OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE

To establish how a graduate GPA is constituted.

II. STATEMENT OF POLICY


The Graduate Program GPA includes all graduate credits taken in a program of study once the student has been accepted as a degree-seeking graduate student. This includes all graduate credits, even before official admission to a graduate program, when those credits are used to fulfill degree requirements.

Graduate credits from UNF taken as part of an accelerated Bachelors-Master’s degree program, as a post-baccalaureate student, or in another graduate program of study are counted in the construction of the Graduate Program GPA when those hours are used toward fulfillment of degree program requirements.

Transfer credits from outside of UNF are not counted in construction of the Graduate Program GPA, with the exception of dual international degree programs; all graduate credits from these programs are used to calculate the Graduate Program GPA.

Credits from undergraduate-level courses, no matter when they are taken, are not counted in construction of the Graduate Program GPA.

The Graduate Program GPA is distinguished from the level GPA, which is calculated on all courses taken as a graduate student. The Graduate Program GPA is used to determine program progress and academic standing; GPA calculations for Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress includes all courses taken as a graduate student, regardless of program and course level.
