1. Professional standards include professional behavior in the classroom, internship, and study abroad settings and are expected at all times. 2. Students must attain a 3.0 overall GPA to remain in good standing within the program. GPAs will be calculated at the end of the spring semester. If students do not attain these minimum standards, they will be placed on PSGA program probation. 3. Failure of a PSGA program course (required courses, language and PSGA seminars) will automatically result in probation, regardless of GPA. Required courses may be repeated once. If not successfully passed, the student will not be permitted to continue in the program and will need to choose a different major. 4. Students with a cumulative GPA below a 3.0 will be given one semester to achieve a semester GPA of 3.0 or they will be dismissed from the program. If successful, they will then have one additional semester to achieve an overall GPA of 3.0 or be automatically dismissed from the PSGA program. Program Components: Admission Requirements Admission into the PSGA Program: overall high school GPA of 3.0 or better. The admission requirement for most programs in CHESS is an overall high school GPA of 2.5. Because of the higher expectations for writing and research and the required study abroad and internship, a higher GPA on admission will help to ensure success in the program. International Students: International students seeking admittance will be evaluated upon their home country’s metrics and standards. Global Admissions & Outreach staff are able to evaluate high school grades from other countries so the School will be able to admit international students on comparable standards. Transfer Students: current students, attending Gannon or another institution, who wish to transfer into the PSGA program, must have an overall college GPA of 3.0.
