Grade-Point Average

The minimum requirement for the degree is a cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 "C" for all work attempted at Drake University.

Grade-points are earned on the following basis: four grade-points for each credit hour completed with a grade of "A"; three grade-points for each credit hour completed with a "B"; two grade-points for each credit hour completed with a "C"; one grade-point for each credit hour completed with a "D"; and no grade-points for a grade of "F" (Failure).

Transfer college work gives credit only and is not included in computing the Drake University cumulative grade-point average.

The grade-point average is determined by dividing the number of grade-points earned by the number of credit hours attempted. Grades of "F" are computed in the grade-point average, but no credit toward graduation is earned. Only passing grades ("A", "B", "C", "D", "Cr.") are used to award graduation credit.
