Grade Minimums

Grades of C- and above in courses offered by the Diederich College of Communication are accepted toward majors and/or minors offered by the college, provided students have a minimum grade point average of 2.000 in the major or minor. Grades of D+ or D generally do not fulfill the credit hour requirement for a major or minor in the Diederich College. Students who receive grades of D+ or D in a Diederich College of Communication course should contact the department chair, who determines whether the course can be accepted. If not accepted, the chair can suggest that the course be repeated or replaced by a substitute course. If students receive a grade below a C in a major or minor course offered by another college on campus, that department chair must be consulted. Credit is given only once for repeated courses. See the University Repeated Courses Policy.
