Application of Standards of Progress

  1. When the Cumulative GPA is at or above the GPA required for the total number of credit hours attempted at the institution, the student’s status is CLEAR.
  2. When a student’s Cumulative GPA is below the GPA required for the number of credit hours attempted at the institution, the student is placed on ACADEMIC PROBATION.
  3. When the Cumulative GPA of a student who is on Academic Probation remains below the GPA required for the total number of credit hours attempted at the institution, but the Semester GPA is 2.0 or above, the student remains on Academic Probation. When the Cumulative GPA of a student who is on Academic Probation remains below the GPA required for the total number of credit hours attempted at the institution and the Semester GPA is below 2.0, the student is suspended for one semester. The transcript will read SUSPENDED—ONE SEMESTER. When the Cumulative GPA is at or above the GPA required for the total number of credit hours attempted at the institution, the student’s status is CLEAR.
  4. The student who is suspended for one semester may appeal. If, after appeal, the student is readmitted without serving one semester suspension, the transcript will read SUSPENDED ONE SEMESTER/READMITTED UPON APPEAL. The student who is readmitted upon appeal reenters the institution on Academic Probation. The student who serves a one semester suspension reenters the institution on Academic Probation.
  5. A student who is on Academic Probation after being suspended for one semester (whether the student has served the suspension or has been readmitted upon appeal) without having since achieved Clear Academic Status and whose Cumulative GPA falls below the level required for the total number of hours attempted at the institution but whose Semester GPA is 2.0 or above will remain on Academic Probation UNTIL THE STUDENT ACHIEVES THE REQUIRED GPA FOR TOTAL NUMBER OF HOURS ATTEMPTED. A student who is on Academic Probation after being suspended for one semester (whether the student served the suspension or was readmitted upon appeal) without having since achieved Clear Academic Status and whose Cumulative GPA remains below the level required for the total number of hours attempted at the institution and whose Semester GPA is below 2.0 will be suspended for one calendar year. The transcript will read SUSPENDED—ONE YEAR.
  6. The student suspended for one calendar year may appeal. If, upon appeal, the student is readmitted, the transcript will read SUSPENDED ONE YEAR/READMITTED UPON APPEAL. The student who is readmitted upon appeal reenters the institution on Academic Probation. The student who serves the calendar year suspension reenters the institution on Academic Probation. All applicable academic designations except Clear will appear on the student’s transcript.
