Academic Standing and Progression Policy-Associate Programs

Associate Degree Programs

To advance from one term to the next, students are required to show satisfactory academic performance, meet the requirements of their program, and fulfill all financial obligations to the University.

Students are placed on academic recovery if the student's term or cumulative institutional grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.00 or if the student does not meet the progression requirements of the program. Students are informed by the academic dean's office or program director, in writing, of their status. Students must meet with their academic advisor upon receiving notice of academic recovery status. Students who are on academic recovery may not withdraw from any courses without the permission of academic advising.

Continued academic recovery or dismissal results if the student does not meet the conditions of academic recovery or the progression requirements of the program. Students may petition the academic dean or program director for reconsideration of dismissal. Petitions must be submitted in writing to the Office of Academic Advising.

The policy stated above pertains to minimum requirements. Policies for academic standing determinations and progression within programs are available from the program director and may be more stringent than this policy. The more stringent policy applies.
