Good Standing and Normal Progress

To remain in good standing a student must maintain at least a 2.00 (C) cumulative average, maintain at least a 2.00 (C) average in courses in their major, and maintain normal progress toward the degree. Normal progress requires that a student fall no more than two credits behind his or her class standing. Class standing is defined as follows:

Sophomore standing 8 course credits
Junior standing 16 course credits
Senior standing 24 course credits

Failure to meet any of these criteria normally results in the student’s being placed on academic probation. A student who fails to regain normal good standing after one semester may be subject to suspension or dismissal by the Committee on Academic Standing. If a student demonstrates exceptionally poor academic performance, the college may suspend that student immediately, rather than first placing the student on academic probation.
