The Academic Review Committee monitors all students' academic progress toward satisfactory degree completion at the conclusion of each semester.

Satisfactory Academic Progress and Good Academic Standing

For Full-Time Students

  • First year students are in Good Academic Standing after each of their first two semesters if a semester grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 is earned and a minimum of 12 credits is completed.
  • All other students are in Good Academic Standing if a cumulative and semester grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 is earned and a minimum of 12 credits completed.
  • All students must complete the six-credit English Writing sequence with a grade of 2.0 or better in each course by the end of their fourth semester in order to remain in Good Academic Standing (or after earning 60 credits for part-time students) earning 60 credits for part-time students).

 

For Part-Time Students
Matriculated part-time students are in Good Academic Standing if their GPA meets the same standards specified above for full time students. The designation of class year for part time students is based on the number of credits earned, comparable to those used to designate class year for full-time students.
