Academic Standing: Updated Criteria for BA and BS Students

The criteria for determining the academic standing of BA and BS students have been revised as a result of recommendations provided to the Academic Standing Committees for the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering by the Mental Health Task Force. The criteria have also been adjusted as a result of the Change to the Credit Hour System in June 2018. (Please note that there are separate criteria for determining the standing of BFA students, which remain unchanged.)

Beginning in Fall 2018
  • A BA/BS student will be sent an academic alert at the end of any semester in which they earn fewer than 12 SHUs but more than 4 SHUs and/or failed one course of any SHU value.
  • A BA/BS student will be placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which they earn 4 SHUs or fewer and/or a semester GPA lower than 2.0 and/or failed to make satisfactory progress as defined by number of credits earned at the end of any semester beyond their first semester (see table below).
  • To return to good academic standing, in the following semester a BA/BS student must complete a minimum of 12.0 SHUs and earn a minimum term GPA of 2.0.
  • Satisfactory Progress for all BA/BS students will be defined as follows: 
 
Semester-hour units (SHUs) - Fall
Semester-hour units (SHUs) - Spring
First Year 12 24
Sophomore 39 54
Junior 70 86
Spring Seniors 102 120

 

Full information about Academic Standing for BA/BS students can be found on the Academic Advising website and in the 2018-19 Bulletin (available in August 2018). A comparison of Academic Policies before and after the June 2018 credit conversion is also available online. Students with questions about Academic Standing are invited to contact their Advising Dean (Liberal Arts BA/BS, Liberal Arts BFA, or Engineering).
