Academic Support Plan Steps

Academic Standing

University Academic Standing is based on each semester's term, and cumulative GPA. GPA is calculated for all degree and non-degree seeking students at the end of each Fall and Spring semesters. While credits and grades earned outside the university are not included in determining academic standing, credits attempted and earned outside the university are included in evaluating for SAP for Financial Aid. Students can find more information about how Financial Aid SAP is determined using the link in the left side menu.

Students with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.00 will receive a letter from their School Dean that they have been placed on Academic Probation or Suspension. Students on probation will have one semester to improve their cumulative gpa to a 2.00, or risk being placed on Suspension. Students placed on Academic Suspension are no longer degree seeking students and are dismissed from the university. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible to receive financial aid.

The information on this page provides students with information regarding their Academic Standing and any impacts their standing has for continuing degree progress and financial support.
