• Number of developmental classes (MTH 099) included in total hours earned
• Number of classes repeated but that are not part of a D/F repeat ( EX:  taking PSY 201 twice with passing grades both times). Only 1 duplicate class counts toward graduation.
• Hours enrolled for final semester

The simple calculation is:

120 hours needed to graduate (or more if your program requires it)
less developmental classes
less duplicated classes where only 1 counts
+ enrolled hours

= 120 (or minimum for your major)

Example:

Student A has 6 credits of developmental classes and 3 credits that do not count toward graduation since she took one class twice to improve her grade.  Her major requires 120 credits to graduate.

Her calculation is  120 – 6 developmental credits = 114- 3 duplicated credits = 111 hours toward graduation
Student A is taking 8 hours in her final semester.  She has 111 + 8 or only 119 hours at end of her ‘final’ term so she will not graduate but must delay graduation until she has completed 1 additional credit (if her major requires 120).
