Why does the college care if my GPA is below 2.0?
There are two reasons the college cares:
• Students must have a UW Oshkosh GPA of at least 2.0 to be eligible for graduation (some majors require a higher than a 2.0 GPA for graduation). Additionally, students who consistently achieve a low GPA are most likely behind in graduation requirements. Allowing students to incur more debt while continually achieving poor results can be damaging to the student’s academic and financial record.
