Academic Standing

Satisfactory Progress and Good Standing

Satisfactory progress toward a degree for the full-time student is the passing of 24 or more semester hours of coursework a year (12 semester hours per semester). A part-time student likewise is considered making satisfactory progress toward a degree by passing coursework attempted in proportion to 24 or more semester hours a year.

A student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in order to remain in good academic standing and show satisfactory progress at the university.

*If a student fails to meet the minimum 2.0 GPA standard required by the university, he or she will be placed on academic probation.
