Minimum Academic Performance

The Graduate School requires that a student must have an aggregate grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 to obtain a graduate certificate or degree at the University of Cincinnati. The GPA used for this purpose should aggregate all graduate-level coursework completed since the student’s matriculation into the particular degree program from which she or he seeks graduation. Transfer graduate credits may also be accepted at the discretion of the degree program (and within Graduate School limits), and any transfer credit coming from courses taken at the University of Cincinnati will contribute to the GPA certified for graduation. Please note that programs establish minimum academic standards that may exceed the overall university standards provided above, so students need to be aware of their program requirements.
