Policy on “D” Grades for Undergraduate Students

Effective as of the 2015/2016 academic year

No more than 16 credits completed with the grade of “D” may be counted toward a Boston University degree. Please note that individual major programs may further limit the number of credits completed with the grade of “D” that may be used to satisfy major requirements. Per the Policy on Repeated Courses for Undergraduate Students, all “D” grades, for repeated courses as well as those taken just once, are factored into a student’s GPI and GPA. In the event of more than 16 credits of “D” work, the academic advisor, after consultation with the student, determines which of the courses with “D” grades may be applied to the degree.
