Academic Status

Continuation of Undergraduate Enrollment

Since the beginning of the Fall 2009 Semester, all undergraduate students (including all non-degree seeking students), regardless of when they first enrolled in NC State University, are subject to this regulation.

Minimum Eligibility Standard

The minimum eligibility standard for continued enrollment for any undergraduate student is defined as achieving the required cumulative grade point average for the total number of credit hours attempted at NC State plus transferred credit hours according to the Schedule of Performance Requirements for Continuing Undergraduate Enrollment, referred to hereafter as the Continuation Schedule.

Credit Hours Attempted at NC State Plus Credit Hours Transferred Minimum Required Cumulative Grade Point Average on all Courses Taken at NC State
1-591.8
60 or more2.0

Undergraduate students who, at the end of any spring semester, do not meet the minimum standards shown in the Continuation Schedule will not be allowed to continue their enrollment at the university during subsequent fall and spring semesters, with the following exceptions:

  • students will be eligible to continue their enrollment until they have received final grades for in at least 12 hours at NC State;
  • no student with a cumulative GPA of 1.0 or higher will be subject to suspension until the end of the student’s second regular semester at NCSU;
  • students who have received final grades for at least 12 credit hours at NC State and have earned a cumulative GPA of less than 1.0 will be suspended immediately (at the end of the semester or summer session) and will be assigned Academic Suspension Status. A student suspended under this policy will be required to take a break in enrollment for one regular semester and will not be permitted to take additional courses (including distance education courses, summer school courses, and independent study courses) offered by NC State prior to or during the break.  This applies to new freshmen and to transfer students.

Academic Warning

Every student who whose cumulative grade point average is less than 2.00, the minimum for graduation, will be on Academic Warning Status. Every student with a cumulative GPA above a 2.0 who earns a semester GPA below 1.0 will be placed on Academic Warning Status for the following semester. The Timely Advising Requirement applies to students on Academic Warning Status.

Academic Suspension

Academic Suspension Status is assigned immediately at the end of any semester or summer session to any student who has received final grades for at least 12 credit hours at NC State and has earned a cumulative GPA of less than 1.0. Academic Suspension Status is assigned at the end of any spring semester or summer session to any student who has received final grades for at least 12 credit hours at NC State and has not met the minimum standards shown in the Continuation Schedule. In addition, academically suspended students are subject to the provisions of the regulation on Readmission of Former and Academically Suspended Undergraduate Degree Students. International students who are suspended will have their programs terminated in SEVIS and must immediately meet with an Office of International Scholar and Student Services adviser to discuss immigration consequences and limited options for readmission or transfer.

Academic Probation

Academically suspended students may appeal to the University Admissions Committee for re-admission on Academic Probation Status in order to enroll in a regular semester (fall or spring). Students will not be considered in good academic standing while on Academic Probation Status which may impact financial aid. The Timely Advising Requirement applies to students on Academic Probation Status. The University Admissions Committee may prescribe additional requirements as a condition of re-admission. Students who obtain a cumulative GPA above the suspension level, after being placed on probation status, will have the probation status discontinued. Students on Academic Probation who do not obtain a cumulative GPA above the suspension level or a spring semester GPA of at least 2.5 will return to Academic Suspension Status.

Timely Advising Requirement

All students on Academic Warning Status or Academic Probation Status are required to meet with their academic advisers during the first four weeks of classes in regular semesters to review their academic situations and to formulate or review and revise as needed their plans of study. Any student in either of these statuses who does not comply with this requirement will not be allowed to register and continue enrollment at the university during subsequent fall and spring semesters unless the cumulative GPA of the student is 2.00 or greater at the end of the semester in which the requirement was not met.
