Transfer GPA Information
Grades earned in transfer courses for students applying to ETSU on August 1, 2015 and after will not be included in the overall GPA.
Prior to August 1, 2015 the overall GPA included all college-level coursework (ETSU and any transfer). Effective August 1, 2015, ETSU implemented the Tennessee Board of Regents' state-wide policy on transfer credit and GPA calculations. Therefore; the overall GPA will reflect only ETSU coursework for those students whose transfer credit was processed on August 1 and after. Transfer grades posted with a leading ‘T’ will not be calculated in the overall or overall combined GPA.
NOTE: Beginning Summer 2015, a Tennessee Board of Regents' state-wide policy on transfer credit and GPA calculations took effect. Beginning Summer 2015, transfer credit will be reflected in earned hours, but will no longer apply to the overall GPA (used to determine undergraduate graduation, graduation with distinction, and athletic eligibility) or to the overall combined GPA (used to determine academic standing, financial aid.) Even after Summer 2015, transfer work will be used in the determination of eligibility for the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship Program and for general scholarships.
Definitions for the various GPA types can be found here.
