Wellness and Health Promotion, B.S.

Grade Point Policy

To graduate with the Wellness and Health Promotion (WHP) major a student must attain a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 in all School of Health Sciences coursework applied to the core curriculum of the major (School of Health Sciences coursework includes courses in EHS, EXS, HS, CDS, and WHP). A student completing a required WHP rubric course with a grade below C+, or whose cumulative grade point average in School of Health Sciences courses falls below 2.75, will automatically be considered to be on probation in the program. A subsequent required WHP rubric course grade below C+ will necessitate repeating the course or a change of major, which is a decision that will be made in the best interest of the student following consultation with the WHP Coordinator. Before repeating any course, students must consult with the WHP Coordinator. For Wellness and Health Promotion majors who want to register as Certified Wellness Practitioners (CWP) with the National Wellness Institute, a cumulative GPA of 2.75 for the overall degree is required.
