Grades and Course Credits

School of Hospitality Administration Policy

Students are required to have at least a 2.0 GPA to graduate. All foundational and elective requirements must be completed with a grade of C– or better. All SHA courses designated as specialization or elective courses must be completed with a grade of C or better for graduation credit. A maximum of four Ds are allowed to count toward a degree, but no Ds are allowed to count in your major (specialization requirements, related courses, and hospitality electives). A grade of F does not carry any credit but will be factored into your GPA.

Questions about a grade should be addressed first to the instructor of the course and then, should the questions persist, to the Director of Curriculum & Instruction. The grade received for a repeated course does not replace the grade for the original course; both grades are computed in the student’s grade point average and credit will only be awarded once for the same course taken twice.
