To remain in good academic standing at the College, students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. A student’s academic standing is evaluated at the end of each semester/term, including summer. If a student maintains a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, the student is in good standing and free to enroll each semester/term. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 GPA, the student will be placed into one of the statuses below and will work with an advisor on strategies to ensure success and an improved GPA.
Good Standing – when a student attains a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher; the student may enroll for a future term
Academic Monitoring – when a student fails to attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher; the student may enroll for a future term but should work with an advisor for success strategies (re-taking coursework, adjusting number of hours taken, etc.)
Academic Monitoring Continued – when a student on Academic Monitoring status fails to attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, but attains a term GPA of 2.0 or higher; student may enroll for a future term
Academic Dismissal – when a student on Academic Monitoring, Academic Monitoring Continued, or Academic Reinstatement statuses fails to attain a term and cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher; the student is dropped from future coursework and must meet with an advisor to determine eligibility to enroll in future terms
Academic Reinstatement – when a student in Academic Dismissal status meets with an advisor and has received approval using our Academic Appeal form (accessible via link below) to re-enroll; student may enroll for a future term
Note: Academic Standing relates to a student’s ability to continue at the College. There is also a Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) that relates to a student’s ability to receive Title IV financial aid. SAP includes requirements for GPA, completion of courses, and completion of program of study.
