To establish how a graduate GPA is constituted.


The Graduate GPA includes all graduate credits taken 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 taken as a post-baccalaureate student, when those hours are not counted toward fulfillment of degree requirements, are not counted in the construction of the Graduate GPA. Undergraduate credits, no matter when they are taken, are not counted. Transfer credits are not counted, with the exception of joint international degree programs.  All graduate credits from these programs are used to calculate the graduate GPA.
