Regulation 19 - Degree Standing

When it has been certified that a student has met all of the requirements for a degree, the degree standing is determined on the basis of academic performance in the final 60 semester hours of credit. The grades obtained in the final 60 semester hours of credit required for the degree are averaged, with degree standing accorded as follows:

  • 80%: 3.7 CGPA or higher: first-class standing
  • 70-79.9%: 2.7 - 3.69 CGPA second-class standing
  • 50-69.9%: 0.7 - 2.69 CGPA pass standing

First and second-class degree standing are recorded on a student transcript.
