AGPA Calculation for BN Program

Calculation of the Adjusted Grade Point Average (AGPA)

An Adjusted Grade Point Average (AGPA) of at least 2.5 is requried.

The AGPA will be calculated as follows:
(0.3 x the core course average) PLUS (0.7 x the average of the most recent 45 credits hours)

The core course average will be calculated on the most recent attempts of the following courses:

  • BIOL 1410
  • BIOL 1412
  • MBIO 1220

The most recent 45 credit hours will be based on the most recently completed 45 credit hours of university level coursework, including the original grades of any repeated courses if these fall within the most recent 45 credit hours. The 45 credit hour swill be limited to courses completed within the past 10 years.

In the calculation of the APGA, all university-level courses which have been assigned a final grade are considered completed university work, including failed and repeated courses. Courses graded "pass" are excluded from the calculatio of AGPA. Courses completed on a full- or part-time basis in all undergraduate and graduate programs will be used in the AGPA.

A grade point average higher than the 2.5 minimum is recommended as admission is competitive.
