UC Grade Point Average

The Navigator 2012-14

A UC GPA is different from the UCSC GPA because it is based on all courses attempted for a letter grade at any campus of the University of California system. Your UC GPA is not displayed on your official transcript; it is available from the MyUCSC on your academic summary page.

All students, regardless of when they entered UCSC, must maintain a minimum UC GPA of 2.0 even if they do not have a UCSC GPA. If your UC GPA is lower than 2.0, you will be notified by the Office of the Registrar and your college that you have a UC grade point deficit. You must remove that deficit by earning letter grades above C in UC courses. Course work attempted for a letter grade at UCSC or at another UC campus can be used to improve a UC grade point average. This includes courses taken in the summer term. Consult your college academic preceptor for advice if you are informed that you have a UC grade point deficit. You cannot earn a degree from UC if you have a UC grade point deficit.
