Academic Standing

Good Academic Standing

Good academic standing for undergraduate students is comprised of both satisfactory academic progress (SAP) and at least a 2.00 grade point average (G.P.A.).
Students receiving letter grades must meet the minimum requirements for both SAP and G.P.A.
Students in the narrative-only evaluation option (no letter grades) must meet the minimum SAP requirements.

Academic Warnings and Dismissal

Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) and grade point average (G.P.A.) are the two criteria that establish a student’s academic standing with the college. A student who meets these two criteria is in good academic standing and therefore maintains her/his eligibility to re-enroll. Students in the narrative only evaluation option do not establish a G.P.A. and therefore do not need to meet the G.P.A. requirement. These and other criteria apply to eligibility to receive financial aid. The college notifies a student of any academic standing difficulty in writing as follows.
