Good Academic Standing
The College has a minimum academic requirement for all credit earning students. Students who maintain a 2.0 GPA and/or 67% completion rate cumulatively remain in good academic standing. Completion rate is calculated by dividing the number of credits that a student has attempted against the number of credits they have completed. Withdrawals and re-takes are included in this calculation.
Students that are identified as International or Athlete may be held to higher or more restrictive requirements.
Students academic records are reviewed at the end of each semester. This evaluation determines the student's academic standing for the upcoming semester. Students will be notified by email if they have not maintained good academic standing.
Academic Probation, Restriction and Warning
The College process for students who do not maintain good academic standing is changing during the Fall 2017 semester.
At the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester only
When a student has completed 20 or attempted 36 semester credits with less than a 2.0 GPA and/or 67% completion rate, the student will be placed on Academic Probation.
When a student has completed 40 or attempted 56 semester credits with less than a 2.0 GPA and/or 67% completion rate, the student will be placed on Academic Restriction.
- Students receiving Federal Financial Aid must also meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
- Students receiving Veteran Education Benefits must also meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress
Starting at the end of the Fall 2017 semester
The first semester a student falls below a 2.0 GPA and/or 67% completion rate, the student will be placed on Academic Warning.
In any subsequent semester that a student on Academic Warning falls below the 2.0 GPA and/or 67%, the student will be placed on Academic Probation.
In any subsequent semester following Academic Probation where the student’s GPA falls below a 2.0, the student will be placed on Academic Restriction. During Academic Restriction, a student will be limited in the total number of credit hours per semester until achieving a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher. Full year and selective admission programs may require faculty approval to be exempt from restriction on course load.
