Grade Point Average

Entrance into graduate programs is a highly competitive process. Thus, students should plan for the admissions process early in their career. Part of this planning is carefully considering their performance in courses throughout their undergraduate career. Students who wish to pursue an advanced degree and request a Committee letter of reference must have a GPA of 3.2 or higher to be considered for a letter. Transcripts from all universities and colleges must be submitted with the application packet for consideration. It is important to recall that every grade earned during a student’s undergraduate career will be included when determining GPA, grade forgiveness at the University does not translate to the admissions process for graduate and health professional programs.
