Grade Requirements for Horticulture Major

Students pursuing a major in horticulture are required to receive a grade of C– or better in all HORT (horticulture) and PBG (plant breeding and genetics) courses that are required for completion of their major and option. If a grade below C– is received in a HORT or PBG course required for their major and option a student will need to re-take the course and receive a grade of C– or better. If the grade below a C– was received for a course that is part of a group of courses where the student can select which courses to take (i.e., they do not need to take all of the courses, just a specified number of courses or credits) then it would be acceptable for the student to substitute a course for the one that they had received a grade below a C–. For example, in most of our options, a student needs to complete three of four plant identification courses. If a student received a grade lower than a C– in one of the classes, they could either re-take the same course or complete the other three courses with a grade of C– or better.

Grade Requirements for Horticulture Major – Plant Breeding and Genetics Option

Students pursuing an option in Plant Breeding and Genetics, under the Horticulture Major, and under the Crop and Soil Science Major, are required to receive a grade of C– or better in all BOT, CROP, CSS, FOR, HORT, MB, PBG, SOIL and ST courses required within their major and option.
