Academic Catalog 2019-2020

Grade Point Average (Minimum) Policies

The following are minimum GPA requirements.

  1. CRLT 101 and Math 100. Students required to take CRLT 101 or Math 100 courses must achieve a minimum final grade of “C” (2.00) in order to be released from required enrollment in the course(s). This means that students may not drop these courses once they have been enrolled in them. Students receiving a “C-,” “D+,” “D,” “D-,” or an “F” must repeat the course(s) in each successive semester of enrollment at Gardner-Webb, until they earn at least a grade of “C” (2.00). Students who fail to achieve at least a grade of “C” (2.00) in one of these courses after a maximum of four attempts will be dismissed from the University.
  2. A minimum grade point average of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale based on the University grading system on all work attempted at Gardner-Webb is required for graduation.
  3. The student must have a minimum grade of “C’’ (2.00) on each course counted toward the major. A transfer student must complete at least one half of the major at Gardner- Webb.
  4. The student must also have an overall “C” (2.00) average on all work counted toward any minor. A grade of “D-” (0.67) is a passing grade for courses in the minor.
  5. A grade of “D-” (0.67) is a passing grade for General Education courses.
