Curriculum, Honors, and Academic Regulations Adequate Progress Toward a Degree The GPA levels defined as “adequate progress toward a degree” are as follows:
Minimum Credits GPA First three semesters of undergraduate education............................................. 1.80 All others.................................................... 2.00 Academic Warning A student is placed on academic warning when his/her semester GPA drops below the level defined above as “adequate progress.” The student will be removed from academic warning status whenever his/her semester and cumulative GPA return to the level required for adequate progress. Academic warning notifies a student that he/she has a GPA that might impede his/her ability to meet graduation requirements. Academic warning status does not restrict course load, eligibility for intercollegiate athletics, or the right to hold student office. It does specifically render the student ineligible for directed/independent studies. Academic Probation A student is placed on academic probation when the student has been on academic warning status for one semester and has failed in the following semester to raise his/her semester GPA to the level required for adequate progress. The University, however, reserves the right to place a student on probation without a previous semester on warning. • the student has been on academic warning status for one semester and has failed in the following semester to raise his/her semester GPA to the level required for adequate progress. A student will be removed from academic probation when his/her semester GPA return to the level required for adequate progress. 40
Academic scholarships are reduced by ten percent during the semester in which a student is placed on probation. The reduction is not cumulative and the original scholarship is reinstated when the student returns to good academic standing per the Provost. While on probation, the student is ineligible for intercollegiate athletics, and the course load is restricted — unless otherwise stated — to thirteen semester credits. In addition, the student on probation is ineligible for directed/independent studies and may be required to accept academic counseling. Academic Suspension A student is placed on academic suspension after he/she has been on academic probation for one semester and has failed in the following semester to raise his/her semester and cumulative GPA to the level required for adequate progress. The University, however, reserves the right to suspend a student without a prior semester on academic probation. Academic probation may be continued in lieu of suspension if the University of Jamestown cumulative grade point average improves but is below that required for good standing, providing the semester average is at or above adequate progress level. A student who has been suspended may request re-admittance to the University of Jamestown after one semester. His or her status will be reviewed by the Provost and the Dean of Students. The student will be notified whether he or she will be re-admitted on academic probation or denied admission. Incompletes Incompletes must be finished within four weeks of the beginning of the next semester. No final action will be taken until the four-week period has elapsed.
