Academic Standings

Good Standing
A student is in good academic standing when they have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher and a recent semester grade point of average of 2.00 or higher. First-semester students are presumed to be in academic good standing during their initial semester unless the student has been admitted on probationary status.
Academic Warning
Any time a student’s semester GPA drops below a 2.00.
Academic Probation
A student’s cumulative and/or semester GPA drop below 2.00. A student can only be removed from probation status by raising their cumulative GPA to a 2.00 within one semester after being placed on probation.
Academic Program Removal
Any student who remains on academic probation for two consecutive semesters of attendance will be removed from their degree program. An application free for readmission will not be required. If a student’s cumulative GPA is less than a 2.00, they earn a semester GPA above a 2.00, the university will recognize the student’s attempt to reach academic good standing and the student will continue on probation until both the semester and cumulative GPAs are above a 2.00.
