A student with low grades in amajor or minor fieldmay be advised to select another field of study.

A student must be in residence at least two full years (61 semester hours) to qualify for honors. Hours earned by examination (test-out) do not count as hours in residence toward graduationwith honors. Dean’s List The Dean’s List is published at the end of each semester. Students are eligible for the Dean’s list if they earn a 3.5 GPA for the semester and have at least 12 semester hours. Grade Point Average (GPA) To figure your GPA, take the specific letter grade you received in a class andmultiply the corresponding number of grade points (see below) by the number of credit hours that class is worth to determine total grade points earned. Repeat this process for each class; then add all grade points earned and divide by the total number of credit hours attempted. The resulting number should equal your GPA. A = 4.00 C = 2.00 A- = 3.70 C- = 1.70 B+ = 3.30 D+ = 1.30 B = 3.00 D = 1.00 B- = 2.70 D- = 0.70 C+= 2.30 F = 0.00
