Step 1. Secure a copy of the unofficial transcript by downloading from the Student tab of MyBC. Click "courses" and then look for your unofficial transcript. This will give you the information you will need to start working on your GPA Projection Worksheet. You will need to look for your current HGPA and your current Q.Pts. This info will be used on your Student GPA Projection Worksheet.
Step 2. Complete the Student GPA Projection Worksheet found under the "Documents to Download" section of this page. The goal should be to reach a 2.0 gpa by the end of the semester. If this is not possible, the students should project future semesters until this goal can be reached. It is important to reach this goal quickly in order to avoid the risk of losing financial aid. You may not know your courses for future semesters, but you can still enter projected grades you must receive to work toward the 2.0 requirement.
This GPA Projection Worksheet is an Excel spreadsheet that contains formulas to calculate the student's GPA over several semesters. When completing, be careful not to alter the formulas. If this occurs, the spreadsheet may not calculate correctly. Download a fresh copy and re-enter information. Hover mouse over the red triangles in the right corner of certain cells for added instructions. Delete the cells that you are not using (example: If you are only taking 4 courses per semester, delete the info from the other course cells).
When you start at the top of the worksheet, you will need two numbers from your transcript, the HGPA (put under Attempted Credits) and your Q.Pts. (put under Quality Points). This should then calculate your current GPA (or close to it).
Step 3. Complete the Individualized Academic Plan (IAP) Template found under the "Documents to Download" section of this page. The GPA worksheet should be used as a reference to complete the first section of the IAP. After completing the study plan section, sign and date the document. Please fill out the plan completely. Be sure to rename the files following this format: last name, first name, IAP, date (example: Smith, Joe, IAP, 7-13-17). Rename the GPA Worksheet using this format: last name, first name, GPA Worksheet, date (example: Smith, Joe, GPA Worksheet, 7-13-17). These files should be sent electronically to Dr. Darrin Martin, Director of Academic Support and the ACE at email@example.com. Students should complete electronically and email. On the signature line, students should place the student ID as an electronic signature. If a student prefers to do so, he or she may also print, sign, scan and then email to Dr. Darrin Martin. Should there be questions, please email Dr. Darrin Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 276-326-4220.
