Understanding your Final Grades

Posted May 29, 2018 in Uncategorized

Picture showing where a student can find their various grade point averages. Refer to the text for full explanation.

 

All of your final grades for Spring Semester 2108 should have been posted to the View My Grades section of a students HUB Student Center.  In this article we will use the abbreviation gpa to represent Grade Point Average.  If you do not know how a Grade Point Average is computed, refer to this article How a Grade Point Average is Computed.

The View My Grades section will show the final grade for each course taken this semester, and also compute your Semester Grade Point Average and also your Cumulative (Overall) UB Grade Point Average.

The Academic Standards Process is run once grades are posted at the conclusion of each semester.

  • A student is in Good Academic Standing, if their Semester and UB Overall Grade Point Averages (GPA) of 2.0 or above.
  • If a student’s semester or overall gpa is less than 2.00 then they are considered to be in Not Good Academic Standing, in which case they may be placed on Academic Warning or Academic Probation.  If both a semester and overall gpa is less than 2.00, a student has a Grade Point Deficit (GPD).  A GPD is the number of Grade Points below a 2.00 Overall GPA.
  • Where to find a Grade Point Deficit.  A student’s GPD is listed in the most recent graded semester on the HUB Unofficial Transcript.
  • If a student has a Grade Point Deficit they should contact the Advising Office that they have been working with as soon as possible.

Acceptance Criteria Grade Point Average

  • Each undergraduate major has established Acceptance Criteria for a Major to gain formal entrance into the program.  The Acceptance Criteria involves completion of specified courses, and earning a specified grade point average in those courses as well as a specified overall grade point average.
  • A Student can find their Acceptance Criteria GPA on their HUB Academic Requirements report, as long as they are coded as intended for that major.
  • If a student is coded as Undecided or a different major but wants to see if they meet the Acceptance Criteria for a specific major, they can run a HUB What-if Report for that major.
