A. Student’s Permanent File

In order to determine a student’s eligibility for admission to and continuation in the graduate program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, a permanent file is maintained on each person who applies for admission to and enrolls in the Graduate School. Progress in graduate study for each degree or non-degree student is recorded regularly in the file.

B. Quality Points

  1. A student’s cumulative average is computed by assigning quality points to the various course grades, multiplying the appropriate quality-point figure by the credit assigned to the individual courses completed, summing the results, and dividing this total by the total number of credits for all courses.
  2. The quality points assigned to each grade are as follows:
  Grade Quality Points Per Credit Hour  
A 4
B 3
C 2
D 1
F and all other grades 0
  1. Any course for which graduate credit has been earned at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and any course which has been accepted for transfer credit by the Graduate School must be used in computing grade-point averages, both cumulative and in the major field.

C. Transcripts

  1. Application for a transcript should be made in the Office of the Registrar.
  2. Transcripts may not be released until all indebtedness to the University is paid in full.
