Determining Your Academic Standing

Your Academic Standing is based on the minimum grade point average (GPA) required in your academic unit for Good Standing. If you have met or exceeded the minimum GPA required, you are considered to be in Good Standing. The first semester you fall below the minimum GPA, you will be placed on Academic Warning. For readmission procedures, please consult your academic advisor.

Note: Although this information is provided as a general reference, you are encouraged to consult the Undergraduate Catalog for a comprehensive explanation of the academic policies for your unit.
