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.
