Engineering majors must earn a grade of C- or better in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses. No grade lower than C- will be accepted on any courses transferred to the University of Houston. Students must earn a 2.250 grade point average in all courses and in INDE major courses in order to enroll in 3000-level and above INDE courses. A major grade point average of 2.000 or better is required for graduation. The major grade point average is calculated using all INDE courses.
