Undergraduate Catalog 2018-2019

Academic Standards Policy

At the end of each semester, students must meet the following academic standards:

Credits attempted Minimum Grade Point Average
0-12 1.50
13-24 1.75
25-above 2.00

Academic Warning

Students with 0 to 24 credits attempted will be placed on academic warning if they meet the academic standards (above) but fail to achieve a 2.00 grade point average.

Academic Probation

Students will be placed on academic probation if their grade point average falls below the minimum grade point average for the number of credits attempted : 0-12 attempted credits, 1.50 grade point average; 13-24 attempted credits, 1.75 grade point average; 25 credits-above, 2.0 grade point average.

Students on academic probation who meet the College’s academic standards at the end of the probation semester will be removed from academic probation. Students on academic probation will not be dismissed but automatically continued on probation as long as they achieve a grade point average of 2.5 or better in both the fall and spring semesters immediately prior to dismissal or a grade point average of 2.75 in either of those semesters until they have reached the required minimum grade point average. Students who fail to achieve the minimum 2.5 grade point average for any semester while on probation will be dismissed.

Students on academic warning or academic probation may not register for more than 14 credits a semester. Summer session students may not register for more than a total of nine credits in the summer session (two courses plus PED 190).

Academic Dismissal

Students who do not meet the academic standards outlined above at the end of the probation semester will be dismissed from the College.

Readmission after Academic Dismissal

Students dismissed from the College for failure to meet the standards set forth in this policy may apply for readmission after a separation from the College of at least one fall or spring semester. Students who apply for readmission after this separation period must have their application reviewed by the Committee on Course and Standing. Students wishing to apply for readmission should obtain information from the Counseling Center, Building 1A, Room 109.
