Deficiency Points

Deficiency Points are a measure of how many credit points a student with below a 2.0 GPA needs to earn in order to raise his/her GPA to a 2.0.

Example:

COURSE HOURS GRADE   CREDIT POINTS
History 1151 3 D (3 x 1.0) 3.0
Sociology 1101 3 C+ (3 x 2.3) 6.9
English 2367.01 3 E (3 x 0.0) 0.0
History of Art 2901 3 C (3 x 2.0) 6.0
Scandinavian 4450 3 D+ (3 x 1.3) 3.9
TOTAL 15     19.8
TERM GPA 1.32   (19.8/15)  
NEEDED 2.0     30
DEFICIENCY POINTS 10.2   (30-19.8)  
 
Removing Deficiency Points

Deficiency Points are removed by earning more points than the minimum needed to achieve a term GPA of 2.00. Using the previous example, consider the following grades for the student's next semester:

COURSE HOURS GRADE   CREDIT POINTS
History 1152 3 C+ (3 x 2.3) 6.9
Spanish 1101 3 B- (3 x 2.7) 8.1
Art Education 1600 3 B (3 x 3.0) 9.0
Film Studies 2270 3 B+ (3 x 3.3) 9.9
Comparative Studies 4597.01 3 C (3 x 2.0) 6.0
TOTAL 15     39.9
TERM GPA 2.66   (39.90/15)  
NEEDED 2.0     30
EARNED 9.9   (39.9-30)  
DEFICIENCY POINTS .03   (10.2-9.9)  
 
Since the deficiency point total has fallen below 15, the student has returned to Academic Warning status from Academic Probation status. The student will not be considered in Good Academic Standing until all deficiency points have been removed.
