Standards of Scholarship

The Graduate Divisions at UCSF and Berkeley have different policies on Academic Standing. It is strongly recommended that students review the most current versions of these policies on the respective Graduate Division web sites, because the program will hold you to these standards.

A note to all Students, regardless of Home Campus

Students should routinely review their transcripts to ensure that grades are properly posted and classes taken are accurately listed. In addition, because courses and grades from the other campus can sometimes take several months to be transferred to the home campus it is important to notify the Group office if the GPA on the Home Campus is below 3.0, but the combined GPA is 3.0 or better. Promptly alerting the Group office of GPA issues may prevent students from being placed on academic probation in error. Unofficial transcripts are available online at:
