Midterm Fall Semester

Thirsting for answers to help ensure a smooth academic experience? You've come to the right place.

THE BASICS

To remain full-time, you must be registered in at least 3.25 units during the semester. A student registered for fewer than 3.25 units could be affected in a variety of areas: financial aid, medical and auto insurance coverage, on-campus housing, and athletic eligibility.

To remain in academic good standing, you must maintain a 2.0 or better GPA. Students who earn a 3.5 GPA for the semester will be placed on the Dean's List.

 If you have a Leland F. and Helen Schubert Scholarship, renewal requires a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0) at the end of the sophomore year, and for each year thereafter.  For additional information about scholarships and awards, visit the Merit Aid page.

For students on academic probation, are you following your plan for improving your cumulative GPA and reaching academic good standing?

If you need additional support, please contact the Sagan Academic Resource Center online or by calling 740-368-3925.
