Grade Point Average Requirements for Limited Access Programs

The Academics Standards Committee proposes the following policy on establishing minimum grade point averages under approved Limited Access programs:

Academic departments that have degree programs approved under the Florida Board of Governors (BOG) regulation 8.013 Limited Access Policy may establish undergraduate baccalaureate degree program requirements that stipulate minimum cumulative Grade Point Averages (GPAs) (as defined in the First Baccalaureate Degree Requirements Policy) and/or minimum grade point averages in major courses. The GPAs may not exceed the GPAs approved by the State in the Limited Access BOG Regulation 8.013.
