Marquette uses the grade point system to determine a student’s academic grade point average, academic censure and his/her eligibility to graduate (see Graduation Requirements section of this bulletin.) Each grade (A through F) earned in a course carries a specified number of grade points. The grade points earned in any given course equal the grade point value of the grade multiplied by the total number of semester hours credited. A student’s grade point average is found by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours credited in those courses for which grade points have been assigned. The official Marquette GPA of all students is calculated by the student information system and this GPA will not be rounded up or down for any reason.
The undergraduate enrollment status is based on enrolled credit hours each semester. A full-time enrollment status means a student is enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits; a half-time academic load means a student is enrolled in 6-11 credits; enrollment in fewer than 6 credits is considered less than half-time status for the student.

Students who are currently pursuing a first bachelor's degree, may, with the written approval of the college of the student and the college offering the degree, concurrently enroll in two bachelor degree programs. Students fill out the Undergraduate Add/Drop a Concurrent Second Degree form, located on the MU Central website, to facilitate this process. If approved, a degree plan must be provided by the college to the Office of the Registrar. The plan must delineate clearly which courses will apply to the first degree and which apply to the second degree and all other conditions specified in the of this bulletin apply. To earn concurrent degrees, the university, degree, primary major and all other requirements attached to each degree/primary major must be completed during the same term. For those students who do not complete the requirements for both degrees/primary majors in the same term, the unearned additional degree/major must be withdrawn; and, if the student desires to complete the second degree/major, the student must be readmitted as a second bachelor degree student, and all requirements for the additional degree/major apply.
