Academic Standards and Probation Policy

The purpose of the Academic Standards Policy is to assist students in the successful progression of completing credit-bearing, graded classes that lead to the completion of the student’s program of study and educational goals. Satisfactory Academic Standing is defined as maintaining a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.

The Academic Standards and Probation policy can be found here.

All current and previous students on probation and/or suspension will be transitioned to the new policy effective for the 2017-18 academic year and their previous academic standing will be waived. If you are one of these students we highly encourage you to connect with a counselor and/or academic advisor to discuss your academic goals, challenges, strengths and some potential ways to improve your academic success.

Academic Probation

We strive to provide students with support and guidance to achieve their academic goals; and we understand the challenges of balancing your studies with responsibilities outside of the classroom. Our academic probation policy is in place not only to alert you of our concern, but also to ensure you are connected with student services and academic resources available to you.

Probation Requirements

Students are placed on academic probation when their cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 GPA.
