First-year Students

The academic standing of students who earn less than a 2.00 GPA for one or both semesters of the freshman year will be determined at this time, and such students may be placed on probation or dismissed.

Upper-level Undergraduate Students

Every student's transcript is reviewed at the end of each semester by the Office of Academic Advising. At this time, academic standing is determined according to the following criteria:

(1) Students earning a semester grade point average of less than 1.00 will be academically dismissed; 

(2) Students on academic probation who fail to earn a semester 2.00 GPA in the consecutive semester of attendance will be academically dismissed; 

(3) Students whose overall cumulative GPA or semester GPA is less than 2.00 but higher than 0.99 will be subject to academic probation; 

(4) Students having less than 30 credits remaining to complete their degree and who earn a semester grade point average less than 2.00 will be subject to academic probation.

Graduate Students

Graduate student transcripts are reviewed at the end of every semester by the appropriate Graduate Director. If a student receives a grade of "F" in a pass/fail program or course, or below a B in a letter-graded program or course, he/she will be academically dismissed and can apply for readmittance according to the readmittance policy. If a student receives a grade of F in a class not in their major program, they will be placed on academic probation and may be required to fulfill a contract outlining steps that the student must take to regain good academic standing. Students who fail to satisfy a contract within the designated time will be academically dismissed.

If a student in the MPS programs receives a grade of "C" in a letter-graded program, he/she will be placed on Academic Probation. If a student in the MPS programs receives a "D" or lower, he/she will be academically dismissed and can apply for readmittance according to the readmittance policy. Students who earn a "D" or "F" will be required to retake the class(es) within the next two years, and will be required to pay per credit tuition.
