Personal Financial Planning

Undergraduate GPA Policy

Students studying personal financial planning must maintain a 2.8 or better GPA to enroll in upper-division classes. The purpose of this policy is to maintain the quality of the PFP program. The GPA policy of the Department of Personal Financial Planning is actively and strictly enforced.

GPA Enforcement Process

Students under their GPA requirement at the time of registration will not be allowed to register for PFP 3000 and 4000 (upper level) courses for the following semester during the period of open registration. All GPA references refer to a cumulative TTU GPA that includes grade replacements.

An exception to the GPA policy will be granted if a student earns a 3.0 GPA or higher in the preceding semester while taking a comparable load and must follow the subsequent requirements.

  1. Any student under the GPA requirement and unable to register during open registration must fill out the GPA Registration Form (below) and submit the request to the Human Sciences Undergraduate Advising Office by the last day of class for the current semester.
  2. The current semester is considered to be the Fall or Spring semester prior to desired semester of enrollment. Summer sessions are acceptable, but not required.
  3. The GPA Registration Request Form will serve as a student's request to take courses in the following semester. If a student earns at minimum GPA of 3.0 in a comparable load of hours, he or she will be granted an exception and and be allowed to register.
  4. If a 3.0 semester GPA is not earned in a comparable load, the student will not be allowed to register. 
  5. Students under the GPA requirement during open registration who do not turn in the registration form by the due date will NOT be considered.

If a student is able to register during open registration and subsequently drops below the required GPA they will not be dropped from courses for that semester.
