Technical GPA Requirements

Technical grade point average (TGPA) requirements for graduation and advanced-level course registration apply to students enrolled in certain College of Engineering curricula. These rules apply in addition to the Illinois campus-wide drop and probation rules. If students do not meet the TGPA requirements, they may be placed on probation. The table below summarizes the TGPA rules applicable. For more information, contact your department .

Math courses include any course offered by the Mathematics department under the MATH rubric and by the Statistics department under the STAT rubric
Engineering (Eng) courses means any course offered by a unit of the College of Engineering (i.e.,under the rubrics AE, ABE, BIOE, CEE, ...)
Science courses means any course in the basic sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, etc.)
Required means that the course is called out by name in the curriculum (i.e., not an elective)
