Students will be notified if their academic standing falls below the minimum acceptable standard on their grade reports each term.

Minimum acceptable standards in terms of cumulative grade point average (GPA) to remain in "good academic standing" are as follows:

12–20 hrs. 21–29 hrs. 30–38 hrs.

39–47 hrs. 48–55 hrs 56+ hrs.
