Academic Requirements for Good Standing

All students should maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA for work taken at this institution in order to be considered in good standing. Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0.

Unless special permission is granted by the student's academic advisor, students on academic probation must carry less than 16 credit hours. Offices of Academic and Career Services, Academic Success, Counseling Care and Disability Services work individually with probationary students to help them meet their individual needs.

Students who are placed on academic probation are suspended for one academic year when the following conditions exist:

  1. Credit Hours Attempted 1 - 24: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 1.80.
  2. Credit Hours Attempted 25 - 45: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 1.90
  3. Credit Hours Attempted 46 and above: cumulative GPA is below 2.0 during the prior semester (academic probation) and both the semester and cumulative GPA are below 2.0

Students who are suspended may enroll for classes during the summer term.

Graduation is dependent upon a minimum GPA of 2.0, utilizing earned grades of all courses taken while pursuing an undergraduate degree. This minimum GPA must also be earned in all courses needed to fulfill competency requirements within a comprehensive major, or within the major and minor programs of study, or within the endorsement areas in teacher education programs. Individual departments, however, may require a grade of at least a "C" for courses in their majors.

Students entering any teaching program of study within the College of Education must be accepted for Teacher Education. A minimum GPA of 2.75 is required before admission to Teacher Education may be granted. To be graduated from any teacher education program and be recommended for a teaching certificate, a candidate must have met the scholarship requirements and maintain a 2.75 GPA.
