All students should maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA for work taken at this institution. If a student's cumulative GPA falls below the following limits, he/she will be placed on academic probation:

Credits Attempted: - Minimum Cumulative GPA
0-16: - 1.0
17-32: - 1.50
33-48: - 1.65
49-64: - 1.80
65-80: - 1.90
81 & Above: - 2.00

Unless special permission is granted, students on academic probation must carry less than a full load (16 hours). Members of the Student Affairs Division are available to work individually with probationary students to help them meet their individual needs. Students who do unsatisfactory coursework (probation) for two consecutive semesters are suspended for one academic year; however, they may enroll for one or more summer sessions.

Graduation is dependent upon a minimum GPA of 2.0, utilizing earned grades of all courses taken while pursuing an undergraduate degree. This minimum GPA must also be earned in all courses needed to fulfill competency requirements within a comprehensive major, or within the major and minor programs of study, or within the endorsement areas in teacher education programs. Individual departments, however, may require a grade of at least a "C" for courses in their majors.

Students entering any program of study within the College of Education must be accepted for Teacher Education. A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required before admission to Teacher Education may be granted. (Also refer to the section outlining application process for admission to teacher education.) To be graduated from any teacher education program of study and be recommended for a teaching certificate, a candidate must have met the scholarship requirements cited in the preceding paragraph.
