ACADEMIC STANDING POLICY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC STANDING

Students are expected to maintain a GPA of 2.00 or higher.  A student who earns a GPA of less than 2.00 in his/her most recent semester shall be assigned the academic status termed probation.

  •  S/he has been assigned probationary status for two successive semesters, or
  •  S/he earns a GPA of less than 1.50 in his /her most recent semester

A student’s probationary status will be removed when s/he earns a GPA of 2.00 or better in twelve or more credit hours and his/her cumulative GPA is raised to 2.00.

When the record of a student has been reviewed, the Committee on Academic Standing may:

  •  Suspend the student from the university.
  •  Stipulate specified requirements, which the student will be obliged to fulfill in order to retain the privilege of initiating or maintaining registration in any following semester.
