    Students obtaining a GPA below their program’s minimum standards are in jeopardy of not progressing successfully through their program and are expected to work with faculty, teaching assistants, tutors, the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Division of Student Affairs staff to ensure they avail themselves of every opportunity to succeed. Failure to meet this standard will result in academic probation. Students on academic probation are given one semester to raise their cumulative GPA to meet their program’s specific GPA standard. Failure to meet this requirement will result in dismissal from the Institute.
