Undergraduate Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy
The cumulative grade point average (GPA) is the numerical equivalent of a letter grade. Undergraduate students are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher each semester to be in good academic standing and to graduate. Undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 will be placed in one of the following categories: academic warning, academic probation, or dismissal based on a review of academic records by a committee comprised of faculty, student affairs staff, and the registrar.
Undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 after one (1) semester will be placed on academic warning at the end of the fall/spring semester. Students will receive an academic warning notification and will be required to meet with their academic advisor to create an academic success plan.
Undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA remain below 2.0 for two (2) consecutive semesters, will be placed on academic probation at the end of the second semester. Students will receive an academic probation notification and will be required to meet with their academic advisor to create an academic success plan. Students on academic probation will see an “Academic Probation” notation on their record in CUNYFirst.
All students on academic warning and academic probation may be required to:
- Register for a reduced course load or specific course (s).
- Attend advisement sessions with their assigned academic advisor.
- Attend an Academic Success workshop designed to help students get back on track to meet academic goals.
Undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA remain below 2.0 for three (3) consecutively enrolled semesters will be dismissed at the end of the fall/spring semester for a period of one academic year (2 semesters). Students will receive an academic dismissal notification and will see a “Dismissal” notation on their record in CUNYFirst.
Students may submit an appeal for immediate reinstatement to the Student Academic Appeals Committee.
