Faculty Advisor Communication Tool
FACT is a communication tool that provides faculty with a method for providing input to career and academic advisors and students for early intervention, coaching, and assistance. Faculty members are expected to submit input around the midpoint of each term/session.
EAB/Navigate is a tool used by faculty and academic and career advisors to better service and communicate with learners. Learners can utilize EAB/Navigate to make appointments with academic and career advisors, while faculty can use it to provide academic and career advisors with information on learner progress in the classroom.
To be in academic good standing, an undergraduate student must continuously maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.000 on a 4.000 scale and must also make continuous satisfactory academic progress. To make SAP, a student must earn at least 66% of their cumulative attempted credits. Nonmatriculated students are required to be in good academic standing to be allowed to register for any subsequent classes.
Students are responsible for reviewing their grades and academic standing at the end of each term through the Student Hub. If there are any discrepancies, students should immediately contact the instructor(s) directly. Students have 30 calendar days after final grades are posted to appeal a grade.
Academic Probation and Dismissal
Notation of academic probation appears on a student’s internal record but not on their permanent transcript.
An undergraduate student is placed on academic warning for low academic performance if their GPA is below 2.000 at the College of Professional Studies and/or if they do not earn at least 66% of their cumulative attempted credits. At this point, the student is strongly encouraged to consult with their academic and career advisor to develop an action plan to improve their academic standing. Attempted credits include all credits/courses for which the student registered and did not drop.
An undergraduate student is placed on academic probation if, after already having been placed on academic warning, their cumulative GPA remains below 2.000 at the College of Professional Studies and/or if they do not earn at least 66% of their cumulative attempted credits in their subsequent term of enrollment. The student is encouraged to consult with their academic and career advisor to develop an individualized success plan to improve their academic standing. Otherwise, a registration hold may be placed on the student’s account.
A student whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.000, and/or does not earn at least 66% of their cumulative attempted credits in the term of enrollment subsequent to the one after they were placed on academic probation, will be academically dismissed. An undergraduate student who has been academically dismissed from the university is automatically dismissed from their major.
A student will be notified about their dismissal within one week following the end of the term and has the right to appeal the dismissal decision to the college’s Academic Standing Committee if they can provide documented evidence supporting an appeal. The notification of dismissal will include the appeal deadline.
Students appealing a dismissal decision will not be eligible to enroll in classes the term following their dismissal to allow time for the appeal process.
