Grade Point Average
Students who do not meet the G.P.A. requirement requirement
for admissions may request consideration under the alternate admissions
standard by placing a letter of request in their admission folder.
The letter should state convincingly what caused the student to
get into G.P.A. difficulty, what steps the student has taken to
rectify the situation, and why the admission committee should consider
taking this student over other students who have maintained an adequate
grade point average. Students not achieving a cumulative 2.75 GPA
may provide an alternate 2.75 GPA calculation which is based upon
the last 30 semester credits completed (or quarter hour equivalent).
In determining the 30 credits, all course credit from any given
semester (or quarter) will be included in the calculation.

based on the most recent 30 semester hours. Since accomodations
are made within course work, no additional exception to a low grade
point average is extended.
