Academic Probation

Students are expected to maintain good academic standing. Official notification concerning academic standing will be given to all full-time students whose performance does not meet the prescribed standards of the College. After each semester, the Academic Standard Committee and the Vice Rector will determine whether students experiencing academic difficulty will be placed on Academic Probation, continued on Probation or dismissed from the College. Academic Dismissal carries specific conditions established by the Academic Standard Committee (see below).

The designation “Academic Probation” will appear on the student’s transcript. It is used to alert students that the quality of their work is below that required for graduation. It is also a way of informing the student that, unless improvement is seen in the following semester, they may be dismissed.

The criteria for determining Academic Probation is:

Semester Hours Completed Cumulative GPA (CGPA) Required for Good Standing
0-35 1.50
36-64 1.75
65 or more 2.00

Students with academic troubles who have been placed on probation must:

  • Attend all class meetings of every course in which they are enrolled.
  • Schedule meetings with their academic advisors at least once every two weeks.
  • Adhere to any other provisions established by the Academic Standard Committee.

Any student who fails to observe the conditions of Academic Probation is subject to review at any time by the Academic Standard Committee and/or the Vice Rector and may be dismissed from the College.
