GPA Requirements

A graduating senior must have an overall 2.0 in all work, a 2.0 in TWU coursework, and 2.0 in major, minor, and core courses by the beginning of the intended semester of graduation. A course that has been repeated is counted only once, and the most recent grade is counted for repeated coursework in determining grade points accumulated. Transcripts are withheld if the student is indebted to the University.

Credit-by-examination courses will not be considered in computing the grade point average to determine eligibility for graduation. A course in which the student has made a grade of F cannot be repeated by correspondence for credit. The Office of the Registrar keeps an accurate record of the number of credit hours each student has earned.
