CUMULATIVE GPA and ACADEMIC STANDING

Academic Standing

Your cumulative GPA determines your ACADEMIC STANDING. If your cumulative GPA is at least 2.0, you are always in GOOD academic standing at USI. In order to graduate from USI, you must have at least a 2.0 GPA. The GPA required to remain in good standing varies with the number of hours you have attempted. Note- some colleges and programs require greater than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average.

Hours Attempted GPA required for Good Academic Standing
0-31 1.6 or greater
32-62 1.8 or greater
63+ 2.0 or greater

Effective Fall 2009, the revised standards will be:

Hours Attempted GPA required for Good Academic Standing
6-31 1.7 or greater
32-62 1.8 or greater
63+ 2.0 or greater

Academic Probation

If you drop below these levels for one semester, you will be placed on ACADEMIC PROBATION for the next semester. If, at the end of that semester, you have brought your GPA back up to the acceptable level, you will return to good academic standing. The fastest way to bring up your GPA is to repeat courses in which you have earned grades of D or F. The repeated course(s), regardless of the grade(s), will replace the original grade(s). The original quality points and hours for each repeated class are replaced with the repeated course quality points and quality hours when calculating the cumulative GPA.  Students placed on Academic Probation should  meet with an academic advisor as soon as possible.

Academic Dismissal

If you do NOT bring your GPA back up to the acceptable level, you will be ACADEMICALLY DISMISSED from the University. If you are academically dismissed, you may be required to sit out of school for at least one semester (maybe more). You may apply for provisional readmission to the University; however, readmission is not automatic. If you are granted readmission, you must sign a contract with the admitting school.  Students who have been academically dismissed and readmitted to the university must meet with an academic advisor before enrolling in classes.
