In order to remain in good academic standing, undergraduate engineering students must maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.00 and a cumulative Technical Grade Point Average (TGPA) of at least 2.00. Technical courses are defined as all engineering, science, and mathematics courses.
Who gets reviewed, when and what happens as a result
Students who receive a grade of D, D-, F, N, NG, WX, W or Y, or whose overall or semester GPA or TGPA falls below 2.00, will be reviewed by the Academic Standing Committee. This review takes place at the end of each semester when grades are deemed final by the Registrar's Office.
Students who receive grades of D, D-, F or Y, but who have a GPA and TGPA of at least 2.00, generally receive a letter of poor performance, mailed to the permanent address on file with the University.
Students with a semester GPA or TGPA below 2.00 generally receive a letter of concern. These students will be instructed to meet with their academic advisor to plan for ways to improve their future performance.
Students with a cumulative GPA or TGPA below 2.00 may be placed on Academic Probation and will be notified by an official letter from the Dean's Office. While on academic probation, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activities. Normally, a student is not permitted to be on probation for more than one semester.
Any student being reviewed may be asked to transfer out of the College of Engineering. A letter informing the students will be sent overnight and by email. This letter will contain instructions for the student as well as deadline dates for actions that the student must take.
