Suspension & Probation FAQs
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding academic suspension and academic probation.
Does my transfer GPA count when determining whether or not I am in good standing academically?
What is credit completion rate?
Will dropping a class affect my academic standing?
Will repeating a class affect my academic standing?
Yes, repeating a class can affect your academic standing. When you repeat a class, only the second grade earned is used in calculating your GPA; therefore, you can raise your GPA by repeating a class that you did poorly in the first time. This could have a positive effect on your academic standing.
However, if you repeat a class that you have already completed (with an A, B, C, D, or P), you will negatively affect your credit completion rate, because it can only count as completed once. Both your GPA and your credit completion rate must be above the minimum standards to be in good academic standing.
