Graduate Academic Standards

Grade Point Average

The grade point average at CSU Dominguez Hills is computed on a 4-point scale. A specified number of grade points is associated with each grade listed in the "Grades and Grade Points" section. "CR/NC" grades have no grade point value and are not calculated in the grade point average.

The total grade points are calculated by multiplying the number of grade points associated with the grade assigned by the number of units for each class. The grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of units attempted.

Master's Degree Students. To remain in good academic standing, a "B" (3.0) average is required in the courses used to fulfill the master's degree program. See "Graduate and Postbaccalaureate Academic Probation and Disqualification" for specific grade point averages required for ongoing enrollment.

For graduation, the grade point average of 3.0 (or higher if determined by the program) is calculated on all courses used to fulfill the master’s degree program. No course with a grade lower than a "C" will be applied to the degree program. No student on academic probation may be granted a master's degree.
