Final Grades

Posted May 14, 2018 in Academic Probation / Dismissal, Did You Know?, Grading, HUB Tips

UB Grading diagram: Letter Grades and their Grade Point ValueFinal grades for Spring Semester 2018 should all be posted by the end of the third week in May.   A student’s grades can be found on the View My Grades page in their HUB Student Center.

To be considered in Minimal Good Standing at the University at Buffalo (UB), a student must have a semester grade point average and an overall UB grade point average of 2.00.

To determine a student’s Acceptance Criteria gpa and course completion, a student would refer to their Academic Requirements report in their HUB Student Center.

If a student’s Academic Requirements report is not configured to the major desired, a student will need to run a What- if Report.

In early June the University will begin the Academic Standards Review Process.  Students whose overall grade point average is below a 2.0 will either be placed on Academic Warning, Academic Probation, or Academic Dismissal.  If a student falls into any of these categories, they should immediately contact an academic advisor.  A student can find their Advising Office location and phone number in the Advisor Box in their HUB Student Center, or refer to the Undergraduate Advising Directory.  If the student receives financial aid, or scholarships the student should immediately contact a financial aid advisor to determine how this might affect their continued eligibility to receive financial aid.
