At the end of each semester, the SAS Committee on Academic Standing, composed of faculty and academic staff, will review and may take action on the record of every student whose semester or cumulative GPA is below 2.00. The Committee may suspend or dismiss students from the School of Arts and Sciences (except those at their end of the first semester) or place students on Academic Warning or Probation. All such students are notified via email. However, all students are responsible for monitoring their own academic record and performance, and failure to receive the notification does not nullify the academic standing action. In addition, students are encouraged to seek assistance early on from the appropriate university resources, if they find themselves in difficulty.
For the purpose of academic standing, grades reported as TZ, TF, or NG and blank grades may be calculated into the student's semester GPA as F. Courses with E and J prefixes are excluded from the formula for GPA calculation (with the exception of TZ and NG grades in potential Dismissal cases). Exercising the repeated course option does not negate prior academic standing actions.
