Successful Course Completion

Download PDF

A learner must complete a certain percentage of credits attempted to achieve Satisfactory Academic Progress. A course is successfully completed if a learner earns a grade of “C” or above in undergraduate programs or “B-” or above in graduate programs. For more information, learners may refer to the Grading System and Grading Scale section of this Catalog.

The successful course completion rate for each semester is calculated as the number of credits completed divided by the number of credits attempted for all courses. Transferred credits are counted in the calculation as attempted and completed. Withdrawn courses are counted as attempted credits that are not successfully completed. Failed and repeated courses are also counted in the calculation as credits attempted. Foundational course work, non-credit courses, and pass/fail grades have no effect on SAP. The successful course completion rate requirements and academic remedies are detailed in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Table in the corresponding academic program’s section.
