Courses and Grade Point Average

  •  A student must achieve a 3.0 overall GPA in all graduate courses taken at Stony Brook to receive a degree. A minimum of 30 to 60 credits of graduate work is required to receive a master’s degree.
  • At the written request of the new program, the record of a student who has changed his or her registered area of graduate study may be treated as two separate records for the purposes of meeting degree requirements. The GPA for the new area of graduate study may be calculated unofficially from the beginning of the semester in which the change was effective.
