Academic Standing – Undergraduate
There are four categories of academic standing: Good, Warning, Probation and Suspension.
Students in good standing as freshmen (1 to 31 total hours) must have a GPA of 1.75 or higher. Students with 32 or more total hours must have a GPA of 2.00 or higher.
Students on warning and who fail to bring up their GPA (1.75 for freshmen, 2.00 for all others) by the following term will be placed on probation. Students on probation and who fail to bring up their GPA will be placed on suspension. However, a student during a probationary term who averages a 2.00 for that term will continue on probation even though the student’s cumulative average does not reach the minimum.
