Albany State University’s Graduate School is committed to offering high quality graduate programs. Graduate students are required to maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average. No grade below C (2.0) will be accepted as part of a program of study for a graduate degree. For this reason, caution is exercised in retaining any student whose grades fall below acceptable academic standards. When a graduate course is repeated, the last grade received will be used in calculating the cumulative graduate average that is used for probation, dismissal, admission to candidacy, and graduation. All grades received for graduate courses taken at Albany State University will be used in the calculation of the cumulative grade point average.
