Probation and Dismissal Policy

Undergraduate Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy

Good Academic Standing

The cumulative grade point average (GPA) is the numerical equivalent of a letter grade.  Students are expected to maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA.  Students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation. 

Academic Probation

Students will be placed on academic probation at the end of the fall/spring semester in which the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. While on academic probation, students may only register for 2 courses per semester until the cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher.

Academic Dismissal

Students whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 for three consecutive semesters will be dismissed at the end of the fall/spring semester for a period of one academic year. Students may apply for readmission at the end of the academic year.
