Academic Standing

Academic Standing of Undergraduate Students

The statement on ACADEMIC STANDING OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS (ASUS) was designed to create an early warning system to prevent students from getting too deeply into academic difficulty. The university requires a cumulative grade–point average (GPA) of 2.00 or above for graduation. The statement on ASUS establishes a system whereby at the end of any semester that a student's cumulative GPA  falls below 2.00, the student is assigned to a warning status designated as probation.

Under the statement on ASUS, the term "probation" is the functional equivalent of an academic warning. Students  placed on probation retain the right to participate in all university activities and retain all of the rights and privileges available to any student who is not currently subject to academic recess or dismissal.

In addition to the criteria contained in this statement on Academic Standing of Undergraduate Students (ASUS), undergraduate students who wish to be considered for federal financial aid must be making satisfactory progress toward the bachelor’s degree as defined in the Financial Aid for Undergraduates section of this publication.
