4.6.2 Grade Point Average Standards

adopted: Jun-1996
last revised: May-2021

The minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) standard for all attempted courses is 2.0. Students are considered “in good standing” if they meet the minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, are eligible to re-enroll at the College, and are not on academic probation or suspension.

A student who fails to achieve the minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 may be placed on academic probation. Standards are available in official publications such as the College Catalog and in the Student Success Office. Semester and cumulative attempted hours are located on the unofficial and official transcripts. Attempted hours are also used to calculate Satisfactory Academic Progress to qualify for federal and state financial aid.

Failure to achieve a cumulative 2.00 GPA in the subsequent semester after being placed on Academic Probation may result in Academic Suspension (dismissal from the College) for one or more semesters, excluding the summer term.

A student may appeal following the Student Grievance Policy (4.15.3).
