Technical GPA Requirement

Technical grade point average (TGPA) requirements for graduation and advanced-level course registration apply to students enrolled in certain Grainger Engineering curricula and only classes taken at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. If students do not meet the TGPA requirements, they may be placed on probation.  For a specific review of TGPA, students should Run a Degree Audit. For additional information and advice, contact their department.
