What Is Considered a Passing Grade?

Grades of C or better are considered passing grades (check with your high school counselor for your high school’s policy about Ds). Dual Credit students are held to the same academic standing requirements as regular college students and must maintain a 2.0 GPA (out of a 4.0 scale). Your GPA is recalculated at the end of each semester to reflect new coursework completed. The GPA is used to determine your academic standing.

Note: If your school district allows a D as a passing grade for high school credit, the college grade earned is what goes on your Dallas College transcript. Even though you may earn high school credit, you can be placed on Dual Credit probation/suspension and jeopardize your admissions/financial aid eligibility. You will not be allowed to take the second course in a sequence or courses listing the first course as a prerequisite if you make a D in the first course. (For example, if you make a D in ENGL 1301, you will not be allowed to enroll in ENGL 1302.) You must retake the course (at your expense) and earn a C or better to move forward in the sequence.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Academic standing is based on GPA1.

GPA1 is the overall or cumulative grade point average for all courses attempted with Dallas College.

GOOD academic standing equals a GPA1 of 2.0 or higher.

Probation, or PROB, academic standing means your GPA1 is below 2.0. If placed on PROB, you must bring your GPA up to a 2.0 or higher by the end of the following semester or you will be placed on Academic Suspension and required to sit out of college classes for a semester. You may have to complete additional requirements.

Calculating GPA

The second digit in a course number tells you the number of credit hours.

  • ENGL 1301 is three credit hours
  • PHED 1164 is one credit hour
  • BIOL 1408 is four credit hours

Credit Hours × Grade (GPV) = Grade Points

Credit HoursGrade (GPV)Grade Points
HIST 1301B (3) 9
ENGL 1301D (1) 3
Total: 6 n/aTotal: 12

GPA is the grade points (6) divided by the course hours (12).

12 ÷ 6 = 2.00
