Maintaining Good Academic Standing
To remain in good academic standing, undergraduate students must maintain an overall Cumulated Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.0 or better for all course work attempted at FU. A student whose CGPA falls below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation for the following semester (summer terms are counted in the calculation of the probation periods for students who choose to register for 6 credit hours in each summer term). If at the end of that semester the student receives a SGPA of 2.0 or above, but is still below a CGPA of 2.0, he/she will remain on academic probation for one more semester. Students will be notified of their status by receiving probation notices and a copy will be sent to the Academic Advisor, Chair of the Department, Student guardian and the Sponsor, if any. Such students are allowed to register for no more than 15 credit hours for the first probationary semester and 12 credit hours for the second probationary semester. Students who do not meet the above criteria will be liable to the following actions:
Action 1: Students will be restricted to repeating courses in which they achieved grades below C, and/or taking one new course per semester only, until they achieve a CGPA of 2.0 or above.
Action 2: Students who have completed 90+ credits of the total credit hours required for graduation will be granted the opportunity to continue their studies in the same academic program, but will be allowed to register for no more than 12 credit hours of repeated courses (those with grades below C) per semester until they achieve a CGPA of 2.0 or higher.
