REGADING ACADEMIC STANDING
At the end of each semester, the student’s academic performance will be evaluated in order to determine student’s academic standing, which may be: Good Standing, Academic Probation or Suspended.
Good Standing: All undergraduate students with a semester GPA or accumulated GPA equal to or higher than 2.00 and all graduate students with a semester GPA or accumulated GPA equal too or higher than 3.0 are in Good Standing.
Students on Academic Probation are those students who:
a) Once the second semester is finished have a semester or accumulated GPA between 1.00 and 1.90;
b) Once the second semester is finished have a semester GPA of less than 1.00, but an accumulated GPA of 2.50 or above.
Paragraph: Students on Academic Probation may not take more that 15 credits in the following semester and must participate in the Academic Support Programs specified by the School and the Orientation Department.
All undergraduate students will be Suspended if:
a) Their semester GPA is less than 1.0 and their accumulated GPA is less than 2.50. A student’s first semester in school is not included in the calculation for the purpose of Suspension.
b) Has been placed on Academic Probation three (3) times, regardless if said academic probations are consecutive or not.
c) Fails the same course four (4) times.
The first time a student is Suspended implies separation from the University for one semester. The second suspension implies separation from the University for a period of two years and the third time a student is suspended implies separation from the University for a period of five years.
Once student has been readmitted a new calculation of student’s grade point average will be performed on the basis of the accumulated grade point average of the last semester in good standing, except in the event a student has been suspended in the second semester, in which case the grade point average will start from zero.
All students who are suspended two or three times and have completed and passed at least 80% of their program of study, may be readmitted after having been suspended for one semester.
All graduate students who fail a course will be suspended from the Program forever.
