Undergraduate Catalog 2016-2017

Institutional Grade Point Average

Georgia College uses the institutional average. Under the institutional average, students may repeat a course or courses and have only the last grade earned count toward the institutional grade point average and credit awarded. The institutional average is the basis for determining academic standing and eligibility for graduation. The institutional average applies to all students. The decision to use the institutional average for purposes other than academic standing and graduation is covered in other sections of this catalog.

Students should be aware that when transferring to other institutions or when making application for graduate school, most receiving institutions make admission decisions based on the Regents’ cumulative grade point average. The institutional grade point average is for internal use at Georgia College.
