Academic Standing

In this Section

Academic standing is based solely on performance within the semester, and does not change due to subsequent changes in GPA due to courses being repeated or omitted.

Academic Good Standing: A student who has earned a semester GPA of at least 2.0 and has enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours. Students who are officially enrolled at Clarkson as part-time students are exempt from the 12-credit-hour regulation.

Academic Warning: A student in good standing whose current semester GPA falls below 2.000 shall be placed on academic warning. A student on academic warning whose current semester GPA is at least a 2.000, and who has received grades for at least 12 credit hours in the current semester will be placed back on academic good standing.

Academic Probation: A student on academic warning whose current semester GPA falls below 2.000 or who fails to receive grades for at least 12 credit hours in the current semester shall be placed on academic probation. A student on academic probation whose current semester GPA is at least a 2.000, and who has received grades for at least 12 credit hours in the current semester will be placed back on academic warning.

Academic Separation: A student on academic probation whose current semester GPA falls below 2.000 or who fails to receive grades for at least 12 credit hours in the current semester will be separated from the University. In addition, any undergraduate student who fails to attain a current semester GPA of at least 1.000 will also be separated from the University.

If separated from the University, a student may apply for continuance in writing to Student Administrative Services (see Continuance and Readmission Process). If continued, the student shall be placed on academic probation.
