How is Good Academic Standing Measured?

How is Good Academic Standing Measured?

At the end of every trimester, we evaluate each student's academic progress. There are several items we review for Good Academic Standing.  These requirements include: Grade Point Average (GPA), Course Completion Rate (CR), and Maximum Time Frame (MTF). Your completion rate is the number of credits earned divided by credits attempted. 

To be in good standing, Undergraduate Students must maintain:

  • A cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 
  • A minimum course completion rate (CR) of 66.66% of all courses attempted. We calculate GPA using this grading scale. 
  • The Maximum Time Frame (MTF) for undergraduate programs is 180 credit hours, or 150% the normal duration of the program as measured in credit hours. 

To be in good standing, Graduate Students must maintain:

  •  A cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 
  • A minimum course completion rate (CR) of 66.66% of all courses attempted
  • The Maximum Time Frame (MTF) for graduate programs is 150% the normal duration of the program as measured in credit hours.
    • For programs with 36 credit hours required, MTF is 54 credits.
    • For programs with 39 credit hours required, MTF is 58 credits.
    • For programs with 30 credits hours required, MTF is 45 credits.
