Grades and Grade Point Average (GPA)
The letters A, B, C, D, S (satisfactory), and CR (credit) are used to indicate passing work. The letters F and U (unsatisfactory) and NC (no credit) indicate that the quality of work was such that, to obtain credit, the student must repeat the regular work of the course. P (progress) represents satisfactory progress, an interim grade pending completion of a subsequent term’s course work.
NOTE: there are four types of GPA used depending on the determination needed:
- KU GPA: all KU attempted A-F hours – a 2.0 is required for graduation.
- KU + Transfer: GPA of all hours taken at KU and transferred to KU.
- Calculated GPA: KU + KU correspondence courses used for certifying graduation – a 2.0 is required for graduation.
- Junior/Senior Major GPA: junior/senior level major hours used for certifying graduation with the major – a 2.0 is required for graduation.
The following numerical values for each credit hour are used in calculating a student’s GPA:
