Standards of Academic Progress
Seminole State College's Standards of Academic Progress have been established to help students maintain a satisfactory grade point average (GPA), to be successful and to graduate. A cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0 is required to graduate.
To maintain satisfactory academic progress at the College, students seeking either a baccalaureate or an associate degree must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.0 each semester. Successful completion of a course is defined as a grade of "A," "B," "C" or "D" except for those courses which specifically require a grade of "C" or higher for successful completion. Limited-access programs may have additional standards that take precedence.
A. Good Standing: Students who achieve at least a 2.0 GPA each semester and have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA will be in Good Standing.
B. Academic Warning: Students will be placed on Academic Warning when their semester GPA falls below a 2.0 in any given semester. Academic Warning provides students with notification that they are not maintaining satisfactory progress and encourages them to seek help for improvement. Students on Academic Warning are strongly encouraged to speak with an educational advisor/counselor to discuss their educational plan and to seek assistance from faculty, the program manager or associate dean. To be removed from Academic Warning at the end of the next semester, these students must achieve a minimum semester and cumulative GPA of 2.0.
C. Academic Probation: Students on Academic Warning whose semester GPA again falls below 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation and the following apply:
D. Academic Suspension: Students on Academic Probation will be placed on Academic Suspension if they have a third semester (not necessarily consecutive) in which they earn less than a 2.0 semester GPA. The following rules apply to students placed on Academic Suspension:
E. Appeal of Academic Suspension: Students have the right to appeal an Academic Suspension. Appeals must be submitted on a petition form to the dean of students at their campus location by the specified date for the upcoming semester. If approved, a student under this status must meet with an educational advisor/counselor or other designated Student Affairs staff member to discuss strategies for success. Students must have the advisor's or Student Affairs staff member's signed approval for the proposed course schedule on the registration form. Good practice dictates that the course load be limited to part-time study to support success. Students will not be allowed to register for the next semester until grades are received and a new GPA is calculated in order to determine eligibility for future enrollment.
F. Cumulative GPA Requirement to Graduate: A cumulative GPA higher than or equal to 2.0 is required for graduation. Transfer courses are factored into the cumulative Seminole State College GPA.
