Academic Requirements for Good Standing

All Students should maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA for work taken at this institution in order to be considered in good standing. Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0

Unless granted special permission by the student's academic advisor, students on academic probation must carry less than 16 hours. Offices of Academic and Career Services, Academic Success, Counseling Care and Multicultural Affairs work individually with probationary students to help them meet their individual needs.

Students who are placed on academic probation are suspended for one academic year when the following conditions exist:

1. Credit Hours Attempted 1-24: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 1.80

2. Credit Hours Attempted 25-45: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 1.90

3. Credit Hours Attempted 46 and above: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 2.0

Students who are suspended may enroll for classes during the summer term.
