Degree Requirements


  • Follow the Graduate School Grading System as published in the TTU Graduate School Catalog. (NOTE: only grades of A, B, and S are considered satisfactory at the graduate nursing level.)
  • Required GPA: A graduate nursing student is required to maintain a cumulative grade average of at least B (3.0) on all courses taken for degree purposes. Credit toward a degree objective will be granted for any graduate course in which a grade of A, B, or S is assigned; however, not more than six (6) hours of credit below a B grade will be allowed. If a grade of D, U, F, WF, or NF is assigned in a nursing degree-related course, the course must be repeated; and both the original grade and the grade for the repeat will be counted in the cumulative average. A nursing course may be repeated only one (1) time and no more than two (2) nursing courses may be repeated.
