Standards of Academic Progress for Transfer Students
1. A transfer student who is admitted on clear academic status is subject to the same st andards of academic progress as a “native” stu dent. Grades accrued at other regionally accredited postsecondary institutions are not included in GPA calculation. 2. A transfer student who is admitted on Academic Probation retains that status until the student has attempted at least 12 credit hours at the institution. If, at the conclusion of the term in which the student has attempted a total of 12 or more credit hours at the institution, the Cumulative GPA at the institution is below 1.5, the student is suspended for one semester. The transcript will read SUSPENDED — ONE SEMESTER. 3. If, at the conclusion of the semester in which the transfer student admitted on Academic Probation has attempted a total of 12 or more credit hours at the institution, the Cumulative GPA at the institution is 1.5 or above, the stu dent’s status is Clear.
To evaluate the academic standing of students, quality points are assigned to grades according to the following system:
A – 4 quality points per hour B – 3 quality points per hour C – 2 quality points per hour D – 1 quality points per hour F – 0 quality points per hour
The student’s academic standing (quality point average) is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points by the total number of semester hours for which the grades of A, B, C, D, and F were assigned.
