Frequently Asked Questions
What is “Good Academic Standing”?

Satisfactory Academic Progress and Good Academic Standing

Undergraduate students’ academic standing will be based on both the percentage of attempted credit hours completed (Satisfactory Academic Progress) and the cumulative grade point average (GPA). Failure to meet either of these requirements for Good Academic Standing at the end of each enrolled term at NCCU, to include fall, spring, and summer, will result in Academic Warning, Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal.

Undergraduate students who do not earn a minimum 67% of cumulative hours attempted and minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA will be placed on Academic Warning for the following enrolled term at NCCU, to include fall, spring, and summer.

Students who do not achieve the minimum 67% of cumulative hours attempted and minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of the Academic Warning term will be placed on Probation for the following enrolled term at NCCU, to include fall, spring, and summer.

Students on Academic Warning or Probation who return to Good Academic Standing but later fall below the minimum 67% of cumulative hours attempted and minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA in a subsequent semester will return to the same sequence of being placed on Academic Warning and then Probation.

Students who do not achieve the minimum 67% of cumulative hours attempted and minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of the Probation term shall be Suspended from NCCU for a period of two consecutive terms to include fall, spring, and summer. Students may appeal their Suspension to the Dean of their academic school or college. Suspended students with an approved appeal may enroll on Probation for an additional semester. Suspended students without an approved appeal must sit out of NCCU classes for a period of two consecutive terms. After the required two-term absence, Suspended students may apply to the university to be readmitted on Probation. The Dean of the academic school or college renders the decision whether to readmit students not in Good Academic Standing.

Students approved to be readmitted after Suspension who do not achieve the minimum 67% of cumulative hours attempted and minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of the Probation term shall be Dismissed from NCCU. Students may appeal their Dismissal to the Dean of the academic school or college. Dismissed students with an approved appeal may enroll on Probation for an additional semester.

The only options for return to the university for Dismissed students without an approved appeal are after an absence of three years under the Academic Forgiveness Policy, or with completion of an Associate’s degree from a North Carolina Community College under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement.

Students who have been Suspended or Dismissed and not approved for readmission by their Dean are ineligible for readmission to NCCU under the special student status category—including during the summer term—except if enrolling as a visiting student with documentation from the home university listing approval of courses to be taken.
