Recovery Points Calculator
Recovery points are a quantitative measure of credits that a student needs to complete with a B or better to return to good academic standing (i.e. 2.0 cumulative grade point average). Recovery points are a useful numerical value for determining the appropriate academic plans for recovery, and for individual conversations between advisers and students.
Recovery points should be evaluated when the cumulative gpa* is below 2.0, using this formula:
Recovery points = GPA Units x [2 - gpa]
