Satisfactory Progress Standards

Each student is expected to make satisfactory progress toward obtaining the degree or diploma he/she has declared. The cumulative grade point average is reviewed at the end of each semester to determine whether the student has made the ex­pected progress. The minimum cumulative GPA for remaining in good standing is a 2.00.

 

Academic Warning, Probation and Suspension

Students whose cumulative grade point averages fall below 2.0 for any given semester will be placed on academic warn­ing for the following semester. The notice of the warning will be sent to the students and their advisors. Students will be encouraged to see their advisors within the first ten days of the following semester.

Students on academic warning whose cumulative grade point average remains below the Satisfactory Progress Standards (2.00) will be placed on academic probation for the following semester. Students and their advisors will be notified of the academic probation.

In addition to meeting with their advisors, students on academic probation must meet with a counselor to develop a "Plan for Success" and receive a registration release prior to any reg­istration period.

During the Fall and Spring semesters, students on academic probation may register for a maximum of ten (10) credit hours, unless otherwise determined by a counselor.

During the summer session, students on academic probation may register for one course per session but not more than two for the entire summer semester, unless otherwise determined by a counselor.

Students on academic probation whose cumulative grade point average remains below the Satisfactory Progress Standards (2.00) will be placed on academic suspension. Students on academic suspension may not register for academic classes during the period of suspension, unless otherwise determined by a counselor. Students on Academic Suspension who request approval to register from a counselor will be required to suc­cessfully complete a College Success class (ACA 111) upon their return and repeat courses in which they received failing grades (maximum of 6 credit hours per semester). Students will remain on academic suspension with limited credit hour enrollment until their cumulative GPA's reach 2.0.
