Academic Standing

Academic status will be calculated at the end of every fall, spring and summer term for all enrolled undergraduate students.

Academic Status and Continuation Criteria

Good Standing: Students must maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.0 or be on Academic Warning or Academic Probation status in order to continue enrollment. Students are considered to be in Good Standing if they are eligible to continue enrollment.

Academic Warning:
Students who meet either of the following criteria will be placed on Academic Warning and will be allowed to continue enrollment:

  • Have a cumulative GPA less than 2.0 and a grade point deficit* of 15 or less 
  • Have a cumulative GPA above 2.0 and a term GPA below 1.0

​​Students on Academic Warning must maintain a term GPA of at least 2.0 for every subsequent fall, spring and summer term of enrollment, until they achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.

Academic Probation:

Students will be placed on Academic Probation for one term after an appeal to return from Academic Suspension has been approved.

Students on Academic Probation who:

  • earn a term GPA of at least 2.0 during their Probation term will move to Academic Warning and will be subject to the continuation criteria described above.
  • fail to earn a term GPA of at least 2.0 during their Probationary term will be suspended.

Timely Advising: Students on Academic Warning or Academic Probation are required to meet with their academic advisor during the first four (4) weeks of the fall or spring term to discuss their plan for academic success.

Academic Suspension:
Students who meet either of the following criteria will be placed on Academic Suspension:

  • Have a cumulative GPA less than 2.0 and a grade point deficit* greater than 15 at the end of any term 
  • Students on Academic Warning or Probation who fail to maintain a term GPA of at least 2.0 for every subsequent fall, spring or summer term

Options for suspended students:

All suspended students have the right to submit an appeal to continue enrollment for a subsequent term. Information on submitting appeals is available online.

NOTE: Students who remain on Academic Suspension will have all future term enrollments canceled and may not re-enroll.

*Grade Point Deficit

Grade point deficit (GPD) is defined as the number of grade points below the required 2.0 minimum GPA. The deficit reflects the number of hours of B (3.0) grades necessary in the future to raise the GPA to the 2.0 minimum.
