Transfer work stops affecting GPA

On April 19, 2013

The transfer work policy has been revised so that students transferring course work from another college or university will receive credit hours for transferable hours, but the grades do not transfer. Transfer work must be a grade of "C" or above to qualify for credit toward degree requirements. The calculation of GPA, including cumulative, will be based only on grades earned at Angelo State University. Transfer work prior to Fall 2011 will be maintained in its present state with traditional letter grades of A, B, C, D, F.

Students whose GPA has been negatively impacted by the new policy will be given a grace period of four long semesters to improve and meet policy expectations. This grace period applies to students who are unable to satisfy degree GPA requirements based solely on institutional coursework.

Any students who leave the institution for one long semester (fall or spring) will be required to reapply and will be subject to the new transfer policy rules.

The posting of transfer work will continue using current procedures. The new grade letter designations for transfer coursework are TA, TB, TC, TD and TF. These new grade letter designations enable transfer coursework to be distinctly identified and separated from institutional and transfer coursework prior to fall 2011. Transfer coursework will continue to include a transfer GPA and an overall cumulative GPA that will be used only for purposes specific to admissions, financial aid, and reporting.
