# Credits and Grade Point Average

To qualify for a degree from the College, a student must complete a minimum of 120 credits with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (C). The overall GPA of courses included in the field of the major (see *Policies for the Major*) for an A.B. or B.S. degree or counted toward the 60 credits of upper-level courses required for a B.G.S. degree must be at least 2.0.

**Term and Cumulative Grade Point Averages**

The Term Grade Point Average is determined by dividing the total number of Michigan Semester Hours (MSH) elected during a term into the total number of Michigan Honor Points (MHP) earned during the same term. The Cumulative Grade Point Average is determined by dividing the total number of Michigan Semester Hours (MSH) into the total number of Michigan Honor Points (MHP) earned. Notations of Y, I, NR, and NG are not initially calculated into the term or cumulative grade point averages. Notations of I, NR, and NG , if unresolved by the end of the fourth week of the next fall or winter term in residence or by an approved extension deadline, lapse to E or ED and are computed into both the term and cumulative grade point averages, if the course was a graded election.

**Minimum Term and Cumulative Grade Point Averages Required**

To be eligible for continued enrollment, a student must earn at least a 2.0 term grade point average and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. If a student fails to accomplish this, the "honor point deficit" can be determined by multiplying the Michigan Semester Hours (MSH) elected by 2.0 and subtracting the total number of Michigan Honor Points (MHP) earned. Only honor points earned in courses elected at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Dearborn, or Flint campus) may affect the grade point average.
