Deficit Point Calculation

Deficit points are used by the college office as a measure of a student’s academic standing and to help college advisors plan a student’s program in order to get off probation. Each deficit point is equivalent to one credit hour of B. For every negative point, you will need one hour of B in order to reach a 2.00 GPA
