Will taking undergraduate level courses in grad school influence my grad GPA?


Recommended Posts

Usually the grad GPA is only calculated with grad-level coursework, although every school's policy will vary.  Check with your registrar or advisor dept. head about that at your individual school.  I may end up with an undergrad-level statistics class to complete during my program (unlikely but still possible), and that class does NOT impact my grad GPA but it might impact my financial aid.  One university said basically if you are taking an undergrad level course, you aren't eligible for the (traditional) federal financial aid (although I have only heard that from one place).

I'm not sure if it would effect a specific "grad GPA", but here it will effect your overall GPA, and would have the same consequences as anything else for grade-based academic probation (B- or below) or GPA requirements.

I found this so I think I'm good :). "Only grades in Auburn University courses approved for graduate credit will be used in determining the overall GPA for continuation in the Graduate School. If at the end of any semester the cumulative graduate GPA (CGGPA) falls below 3.0, the student will be placed on academic probation. If the CGGPA remains below 3.0 after the next nine credit hours of graduate enrollment (both graded and ungraded), the student will be placed on academic suspension. The student may be readmitted only after completion of a remediation plan recommended by the academic unit and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School. No course work taken as part of the remediation plan may count toward the student's degree or CGGPA. Graduate-level courses for which grades below C were earned may not be repeated during the remediation period."
