To remain in good academic standing, students must maintain cumulative and term GPAs of 2.00 or greater, as well as earn 67% of all attempted credit hours. Students who do not achieve a 2.0 semester GPA after the first full-time term at NCCU, a 2.0 cumulative GPA after the first academic year at NCCU, or earn 67% of all attempted hours will be placed on academic probation for one semester. Academic probation is a one semester opportunity to return to good academic standing. If a 2.0 semester or cumulative GPA, or 67% of attempted hours are not earned at the end of the probation semester, the student will be suspended from NCCU for a period of two semesters, after which the student may apply to be readmitted to the University on probation. If the student again does not achieve the 2.0 semester or cumulative GPA, or earn 67% of attempted hours at the end of the probation semester after readmission, the student will be dismissed from NCCU. A dismissed student may appeal the dismissal to the Dean of his/her academic College.
This policy has been established to enable students to complete their undergraduate work within a reasonable period of time. Students expecting to graduate in eight semesters (four years) must average 15 to 16 completed hours each semester.
