Scholastic Standards

Students must earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, a minimum term GPA of 2.0, and meet the threshold for Satisfactory Academic Progress (earning at least 67% of the hours that they have attempted) to maintain good academic standing. Students who fall below the 67% threshold for Satisfactory Academic Progress and/or whose term GPAs fall below 2.0 will receive a status of Good Standing with Warning. Meeting these standards does not guarantee financial aid eligibility. See Financial Aid, "Satisfactory Academic Progress".The university will evaluate students for satisfactory academic progress at the end of the fall and spring semesters. The student's academic status will be noted on the student's transcript. Students are responsible for remaining aware of their academic status.
