The student's cumulative grade-point average is based on all grades
in courses completed at Rutgers University including courses failed and repeated. The grade-point average within the major includes specific courses identified by each department as comprising the grade-point average for the major. Generally, this includes all courses required of the major except the common core
courses required of all majors in engineering and the humanities/social sciences and general electives. Courses that comprise the major
grade-point average are identified by "M" prefixes in the registration system and on unofficial student transcripts. See the University Policies and Procedures section for information on the computation of the grade-point average and other grading regulations.
