GPA Requirements

Students must maintain at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all courses taken in the overall major (including both lower- and upper-division classes), in all upper-division major courses, and in all work completed at the university. In addition, students who fail to earn a 2.0 grade-point average in either the preparation for the major or the major may be denied the privilege of continuing in the program. Individual departments may have higher grade-point average requirements.

Courses taken at any of the UC campuses are included in the computation of the grade-point average. (For information about courses completed through UC Extension, please refer to the "GPA Requirement" page in the "Undergraduate Education" section of this catalog.)

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. Courses graded Incomplete, except those taken on a passed/not passed basis, will be included as F grades in final computations. Certain courses designated as remedial are offered for work-load credit only and do not figure in calculation of the grade-point average.
