GPA Requirement

At the time of graduation, students in the College of Engineering and the College of Letters and Science must have at least a 2.0 (C) grade-point average in (1) all courses undertaken at the University of California (UC) except those graded passed/not passed; (2) all UC courses required and acceptable for the student’s overall major program, both lower- and upper-division; and (3) all UC courses required and acceptable for the student’s upper-division major program.

Courses undertaken at any of the UC campuses (with the exception of UC Extension courses) are included in the computation of the grade-point average (GPA). UCSB courses taken by concurrent enrollment through Extension, beginning Fall 2000, will be included in UCSB’s GPA.

Courses appropriate for satisfying major requirements must be used in the computation of the grade-point average even if they are in excess of the minimum requirements of the major program. Students who wish to receive recognition for completion of a minor must have earned a grade-point average of at least 2.0 in all upper-division courses required or acceptable for the minor. Courses graded Incomplete, except those taken on a passed/not passed basis, will be included as F grades in final computations. Courses designated as remedial are offered for workload credit only and do not figure in calculation of the GPA.

Students in the College of Creative Studies must, at the time of graduation, have a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (C) in all UC courses that have been undertaken for letter grades.
