Ultimately it is your responsibility to meet the University’s graduation requirements and those of your program. To calculate your hours toward graduation you’ll need the following information.
- 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
= hours applied toward graduation
+ enrolled hours
= 120 (or minimum for your major)
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).
ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR ADVISOR.
