English term or phrase: deficiency points
Estoy traduciendo un expediente académico de una estudiante de ingeniería de Penn State University:

Summary

Semester
Cumulative
Total Earned Credits
**Deficiency Points**
Late Drop Credits Remaining"

Para semester y cumulative, aparecen las siguientes columnas con datos: credits, GPA, grade points
Para "total earned credits" solo aparece un número en la columna de créditos, al igual que en el caso de "late drop credits remaining". Deficiency points tiene un 0,00 en la columna de grade points.

Como no tenía ni idea de a qué se refería, envié una consulta al secretario (registrar) de la universidad y me dijo que revisara este texto para entender.

"Drop Action for Unsatisfactory Scholarship

Drop action is taken for unsatisfactory scholarship (policy 54-50) based on the total credits scheduled and grade-point deficiencies accrued. A grade-point deficiency exists when total grade-points are less than total credits times two. Deferred Grades (DF) and No Grades (NG) are not included in this calculation.

Grade-point Deficiency Example: A student who had scheduled a total of 36 credits and who had earned 66 grade-points would have a deficiency of 6 grade points (36 x 2 = 72 - 66 = 6).

The drop action will not occur if the semester GPA is 2.00 or higher."

¿Alguien entiende a qué se refieren?

Muchas gracias

Explanation:
Deficiency points (also known as quality point deficiency) are the number of quality points lacking for the calculation of your cumulative GPA to result in a 2.0.

This is from another university that explains what deficiency points are:
El estudiante será suspendido por deficiencia académica si no ha cumplido con dichos índices mínimos al finalizar cada año. Todos los estudiantes deberán tener un índice académico no menor de 2.00 para ser elegibles para graduación.

Here is the link, check page 11. I hope it helps!
