Good Academic Standing

To remain in good academic standing, students must possess a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA). The minimum cumulative GPA (CGPA) is based on GPA hours at Towson University plus any transfer work as indicated below:

Undergraduates


MINIMUM GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIRED

# of units (gpa hours + transfer units) minimum cumulative gpa
0 - 29.5 1.50
30 - 59.5 1.75
60 and above 2.0

GPA hours include all units attempted at Towson University that earned a letter grade (A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D+, D, F, FX) and are calculated on the transcript. Withdrawals and courses that have been excluded as a result of a repeat, do not count as GPA hours. The total of GPA hours in addition to the number of posted transfer units, including AP/IB/CLEP test credits, will determine the minimum CGPA required to maintain good academic standing.

Graduates


MINIMUM GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIRED

Total of all units must be a 3.0.

*Includes Towson coursework only.

Minimum 3.0 GPA is required for all courses taken for graduate credit whether or not they are required for the degree.

Good academic standing is necessary to transfer course work and to graduate.
