The Academic Standing (formerly called the Academic Probation) policy identifies rules and procedures that apply to students based on their academic standing. The new policy goes into effect this Spring 2021 semester. It is designed to:
1. Improve the overall student experience with respect to the academic standing process when their cumulative GPA falls below 2.00.
2. Allow students on Academic Monitoring to maintain their full-time status (see details below)
3. Improve retention, persistence, and graduation success of students.
The policy maintains four levels of academic standing:
1. Academic Warning (formerly called Academic Probation)
2. Academic Monitoring (formerly called Academic Restricted Probation)
3. Academic Suspension
4. Academic Good Standing (cumulative is 2.0 or higher)
A student has five attendance semesters or 30 hours (whichever is more) to improve their cumulative CU GPA to 2.00.
If a student on Academic Warning is unable to achieve a 2.00 semester GPA or higher in any given semester, student will be placed on “Academic Monitoring” and notified via university email.
A student on Academic Monitoring who does not meet the 2.00 minimum semester GPA will be placed on Academic Suspension.
