GPA Requirements for Graduation Eligibility

In order to be eligible to have your Master’s degree conferred or your graduate certificate issued after completing all of your course requirements, you must hold a GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.0 or above.

Courses transferred from other universities, or from a completed APUS program into a subsequent APUS program, are not included in the calculation of your cumulative GPA when applied as residential or transfer credit.

If you complete all of the courses for your program but have a GPA below 3.0, we can issue you a letter of program completion, you will not actually earn the degree or certificate.
