Understanding Quality Points
- The goal of the academic probation process is to help students identify and address difficulties that are hindering their academic success. Quality Point Deficits are a way of indicating how far a student’s cumulative GPA falls below the 2.0 required for good academic standing and graduation.
- Quality points are calculated only for courses receiving grades of A, B, C, D (plus/minus), F, X and Z (see Quality Point Chart).
- Courses with Passing grades (P), Listener (L, LW), Incomplete (I), Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S,U) or Withdrawal (W), as well as noncredit and remedial courses, are not included are not given quality points.
- If you have a cumulative GPA at or below 2.0, any grade of C- or lower will increase your deficit points.
- Any grade of C+ or better will help reduce your deficit points.
- Only grades from courses taken at UD are part of your UD GPA and count toward reducing a Quality Point Deficit.
