GOOD ACADEMIC STANDING

To continue enrollment at MSU, students must maintain certain GPA standings according to the number of credit hours they have attempted. Transfer credit hours are included in total hours attempted; however, only grades in MSU classes are counted in cumulative GPA. Students who meet the following minimum cumulative GPA levels are in good academic standing, and may continue to register for classes. 

Required GPA for Hours Attempted

  • 1.8 MSU cumulative grade-point average if 24 or fewer semester hours have been attempted
  • 1.9 MSU cumulative grade-point average if 25-36 semester hours have been attempted
  • 2.0 MSU cumulative grade-point average if 37 or more semester hours have been attempted.
  • "Hours attempted" includes transfer hours, however, only MSU course grades are included in the cumulative GPA.
