Academic standing is determined by the institutional grade point average once faculty has submitted final grades to the Office of the Registrar at the end of each semester. This process is referred to as End of term grade processing.The Office of the Registrar will notify students through their CatMail when to log on to their BannerWeb Account and view their academic history for the following information:
- Final grades for each course
- Semester Grade Point Average (GPA)
- Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA)
- Student’s Academic Standing
Academic Good Standing – A student with a GPA of at least 2.0 are considered in Good Standing with the institution.
Academic Warning and Probation
Students with less than a cumulative 2.0 GPA will receive a cautionary letter from the Office of the Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs (VPASA) alerting the individual that their academic performance is less than satisfactory.
Academic Warning – A student incurs academic warning after attempting 1-17 credit hours with a cumulative GPA below 2.0.
Academic Probation – A student incurs academic probation after attempting 18 or more credit hours with an institutional GPA below 2.0. Students with a probationary academic standing must make a 2.0 or higher semester GPA for any semester enrolled until the cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher.

A student with less than a cumulative 2.0 GPA will receive an exclusion letter for the Office of the Registrar alerting the individual of their exclusion.
