You must maintain a cumulative program GPA of at least the minimum required by your academic program.
Transfer hours from outside of the IU system do not count toward the program GPA. Exception: courses from Purdue are used in the calculation of program GPA for students enrolled in Purdue degree programs.
In order to meet SAP requirements, you have to successfully complete no less than 67 percent of your total attempted credit hours.
Your completion rate is determined by dividing the hours you successfully completed by the total number of hours you attempted. For SAP purposes, your completion rate will be rounded to the nearest whole percentage. For example, if you take 9 credit hours but successfully complete only 6, that is a completion rate of 67 percent.
Hours successfully completed include those with grades of A, B, C, D, P, R, and S.
If you received a grade of W, F, FX, or I in a course, you did not successfully complete that course. Hours from these courses are included in the total hours attempted in the formula above.
Attempted hours may include:
- Hours accepted for transfer
- Repeated coursework
- Coursework in which a student is granted academic forgiveness
- Consortium coursework
- Courses that are noncredit, remedial, or enrichment
- English as a Second Language courses
- Coursework completed in the Passport Program between IUPUC and Ivy Tech Community College of Columbus
Transfer credit hours are counted as both attempted and completed. Audited courses are not included in the calculation.
You must complete your degree requirements within 150 percent of the published credit hour length of your academic program. For example, if your degree requires 120 credit hours for completion, you must be on track to complete your degree requirements before attempting 180 credit hours (120 credit hours X 150 percent).
We are required to select students at the point in time we determine they cannot meet the 150 percent requirement. We begin to select students when they have attempted 125 percent of the published credit hour length of their academic program. For example, if your degree requires 120 credit hours for completion, you will be selected for SAP when you have attempted 150 credit hours (120 credit hours X 125 percent).
Changes in major, pursuit of a second degree, and transfer hours may impact eligibility based on number of hours attempted.
