What are the critical tracking course requirements and policies for the program?

All students must earn and maintain semester and cumulative GPAs of 2.0 or higher. Students must also earn and maintain the required critical tracking GPA for their major and must earn a minimum grade of C in all critical tracking courses based on a maximum of two attempts including withdrawals. Students can double-attempt up to three critical tracking courses. The critical tracking GPA requirement varies among the majors and is calculated based on the UF grading scale. For example, students must take at least one critical tracking course during the first fall semester and earn the required semester, cumulative and critical tracking grade point averages for their major to be considered on track at the end of the first semester. The required critical tracking courses and GPA for each major are listed below.
