Academic Standing

Committee on Course and Standing

The Committee on Course and Standing is chaired by the Vice President for Academic Affairs or a designee; and its membership consists of the Registrar and one member of the faculty from each instructional department. In addition to reviewing student records, the Committee considers student appeals related to readmission, and graduation.

Students can petition the Committee through an appeals counselor in the Division of Student and Enrollment Services. The appeals counselors, whose names are available through the Registrar’s Office, will advise the students in the preparation of their petition, which will then be referred to the Committee.

Minimum GPA

Students are expected to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 (C) throughout their academic careers at the College. Whenever a student’s GPA falls below 2.0, the student’s record will be reviewed by the Committee on Course and Standing. Students must achieve a GPA of 2.0 in the courses in the core or major requirements; some majors require a higher minimum GPA.
