  • Good Standing: An all college GPA of at least 2.0 with seven or more credits attempted.

  • Probation: Students who have attempted seven (7) or more college credits with less than a 2.0 all-College GPA (excluding college preparatory courses) will be placed on Probation for their next term of enrollment.  To learn more about probation status, please review this video.

  • Continued Probation: Continued Probation will occur when the student earns a minimum 2.0 term GPA and the all college GPA remains below a 2.0. The student will return to Good Standing when the all-College GPA is a 2.0 or higher.

  • Suspension: Students will progress to suspension for one semester if the term and all-College GPA fall below a 2.0.  Students who return after suspension will be placed on continued probation. Students suspended again will be academically dismissed for a period of one calendar year if the all-college GPA falls below 2.0.
