(Any student who has earned 45 credit hours and has yet to pass the Regents Test must schedule remedial English (Engl 0012 and/or 0015) in addition to regularcoursework.)FornonnativespeakersofEnglish,alternativetestsareavailable throughtheDepartmentofModernLanguages. GPARequirement To receivea BSBMEDdegree from GeorgiaTech, you must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 at the time of graduation. Also, the GPA of the BMED coursesontheBSBMEDdegreepetitionmustbeatleast2.0.Forthiscalculation,only thebestgradeearnedineachcourseisincluded. ClassesRequiringaC

AcademicStanding The minimum grade point average for good academic standing is 1.70 for freshmen, 1.80 for sophomores, 1.95 for juniors, and 2.0 for seniors. Any student who has an overall scholastic average below the minimum requirement or whose average for a given semester falls below the minimum requirement will be placed on academic warning and will be limited to a maximum schedule load of sixteen credit hours.
